Client Reviews

holiday to South Africa

Alastair Doodson, 21st October 2023
Overall Rating:

This was the most amazing trip for our family, and despite being frequent visitors to South Africa and knowing it well, we were still blown away by the experiences we had, the places we stayed and the hospitality that we enjoyed. I could not recommend this trip and the Mahlatini team highly enough for the expertise that they provided, guidance on venues and all the support through the booking process. The service was truly first class.

Accommodation Visited

Chez Fox

“5-Star treatment all the way!!”


“The cottages are lovely to stay in, the estate is stunning and it provides a great point from which to explore the local winelands. The food is terrific and of course, you have a fantastic collection of wines on tap. The kids really enjoyed exploring and the activities that were available.”

The Oyster Box Hotel

“For anyone looking for a real treat in the Durban area, this is the place to stay. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the location, service, facilities and food are first class.”

Makakatana Bay Lodge

“Despite being a little unlucky with the weather we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Makakatana Bay Lodge. An intimate venue with a really natural bush vibe, it was a fantastic treat for the kids and they were super excited about the opportunity to spot game on the walk from their room to the dining area. The entire team was fantastic and made every effort to ensure that we enjoyed our stay, enjoyed the game drives and were well-fed and watered.”

Phinda Mountain Lodge

“Despite many safari adventures across all parts of Africa our stay at Phinda would rank as one of my favourites ever. The facilities are stunning and the reserve offers everything that you could hope for in terms of landscapes, bird life and game. The team there is first class and made the experience for my 3 kids so memorable.”

Staff Review

“Outstanding service and could not recommend the entire Mahlatini team highly enough!!”
