Overall Impressions

We absolutely loved our trip, it suited us really well and was carefully thought through to make all the connections and travel stress free.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Loved South Africa, we have been telling friends what a great place it is for a family holiday and adventure.

Accommodation Visited

Whale Rock Luxury Lodge

Whale Rock Lodge was very friendly and went out of their way to help us with trips and restaurant bookings. We loved the room, breakfast was great and the location super.

Pearls of Umhlanga

The apartment was really great, it had everything we needed. The staff were helpful and it was in an ideal location. The only issue was being there on a public holiday and the night club over the road had a roof top DJ from afternoon to early morning which was quite noisy. It wouldn't have mattered what room or hotel we had been in, the whole of Umhlanga heard it!

AmaZulu Lodge

We loved the design of the rooms and the location, staff a little less helpful than our other stops initially but St. Lucia was one of our favourite stops on the trip and the kids enjoyed seeing monkeys at the hotel!

Rhino Ridge Safari Lodge

Super. We loved it, fabulous rooms and the staff were excellent, especially our guide. The rhythm of the day was well organised and food was plentiful and delicious. Kids were so well looked after and enjoyed the pool. The game drives were the highlight, our guide went out of her way to get us where we needed to be to see the best of the park and as many animals as possible.

Staff Review

We have recommended Mahlatini to lots of people since we have been home, the trip was perfect for a family on its first long haul holiday looking for an adventure.
