Overall Impressions

We can?t fault a single thing. This was a trip of a lifetime and we will absolutely never forget it! The experiences, the place, the people, the culture, the memories; all made possible by our incredible travel consultants; Jamie and Sive!

Countries Visited


We fell in love with Kenya as soon as we were picked up from the airport and within 2 minutes had spotted a giraffe in the distance in the National Park! It?s such a beautiful place and we have definitely left somewhat changed. We can?t wait to return!


We spent our time in Zanzibar and it was the perfect safari wind down spot! Beautiful beaches and an amazing hotel!

United Arab Emirates

We met in Dubai, so to spend the last few days of our honeymoon there, made our trip even more special!

Accommodation Visited

Hemingways Nairobi

Beautiful hotel for the first night of our trip. After a long journey we got to rest in a luxury room and had the most incredible steak in the restaurant!

Sala's Camp

This place was our favourite. Everything about it was simply amazing. Storm was an incredible host and very personable. The staff (we made good friends with Georgie in particular) and our safari guide, Moses could not do enough for us. I cried upon leaving this place and I don?t think i?ll ever be able to truly express just how incredible it was.

Giraffe Manor

One of the best experiences of our lives! An incredible building and the best visitors for breakfast in the morning! Again, the staff made us feel so welcome and went above and beyond by arranging a romantic candlelit dinner for us in the Orchid House. We didn?t want to leave!

Baraza Resort and Spa

Absolute luxury! This resort was immaculate and the food was nothing like we?ve experienced before. Our villa with private plunge pool was just amazing and our villa host was there to make sure we had everything we needed! On our last night the owner of the hotel came over to introduce himself to us as he was spending Christmas there with his family - this was a lovely personal touch and it was great to meet the man behind such a beautiful hotel!

Jumeirah Beach Hotel

We loved this hotel. We got a room with an incredible view of the Burj Al Arab and got to watch the most beautiful sunsets from our room! Again, the food and staff were exceptional. A great place to end the best trip!

Staff Review

We can?t praise Jamie enough for everything he did for us. We originally went to a well known luxury travel agent and was provided a similar itinerary for over double the price, which was out of our price range and didn?t have half of the things that we managed to get with Mahlatini! Jamie went above and beyond to make sure we got to visit every place we wanted to and took care of arranging everything! When Jamie left, Sive took over and she continued the amazing service we had received from Jamie. She made sure everything was taken care of and added some special touches which really made our trip incredible! We can?t thank Mahlatini enough and since we?ve been back have recommended them to at least 20 of our friends!!!! We will absolutely use Mahlatini again and can?t wait to sort our next trip!
