Overall Impressions

It was an amazing trip from beginning to end, very well organised and most suitable to our needs.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Have been to South Africa many times so am very familiar with it. Obviously enjoy it as we keep going back.


First time to visit this amazing country. The people were very friendly and helpful and the Safari experiences were beyond our expectations.

Accommodation Visited

Chobe Under Canvas

This was a very different experience but a most enjoyable one. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent based on the facilities available. Our guide was terrific and we saw a wide variety of bird and animal life. A highlight was the boat trip with the inbuilt cameras where we got close up to wildlife and we are now enjoying watching the photos and bringing back happy memories

Nxabega Okavango Tented Camp

Again this was a wonderful experience and we enjoyed the comforts of Nxabega. Our guide and spotter were first class and went out of their way to make our experience memorable. Extra touches included a surprise lunch by the pond full of hippos and crocs with ample opportunity for photos. A surprise birthday cake was also a nice touch. Overall the staff and accommodation were supberb.

Sandibe Okavango Safari Lodge

Again we had a wonderful guide and spotter and we gained an immense knowledge, not only about the animal and bird life, but also about the Okavango Delta. Sandibe was most luxurious with wonderful food and excellent staff. Here a very nice touch was a surprise breakfast in the bush produced by the excellent chef and overseen by the Lodge manager. A night Safari was also a wonderful experience.

Staff Review

Monique and any other Mahlatini staff I dealt with were efficient and professional. Monique planned a wonderful Safari experience for us and was always most helpful. I would have no hesitation in dealing with Mahlatini and Monique again and wold recomment them to my friends. I also found &Beyond; an amazing organization and loved the way they respected the wild life and the land.
