Overall Impressions

This was the trip of lifetime. Highly recommend using Mahlatini for your travel needs. Especially to a very foreign country, it was incredibly helpful to have Mahlatini people waiting for you right at your gate as soon as you land, take you to get your bags, go through customs, and take you to your hotel. It was a seamless transition. Special acknowledgement to Martin in Cape Town, who drove us to the Cape Town airport, took us to check our bags and check in, showed us where the pharmacy was so we could pick up some medicine, and then walked us right to Security. Very helpful and nice man.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Cape Town is a beautiful, beautiful city, a place that I would certainly go back to. Lovely restaurants, sites, hikes, tours, and people. Highly recommend this city. Kruger National Park, and the safari tours within it, are like nothing else in the world. A truly unforgettable experience, that everyone should do once in their life.

Mozambique

Beautiful beaches and lovely people. Great food and ambiance.

Accommodation Visited

Cape Grace

Cape Grace was great. The people were very nice and helpful. The location is perfect. Right on the waterfront, great views of the town and docks, right by several restaurants and shops, and of course the ferris wheel.

Dulini Lodge

Terrific. People were very helpful and informative. And our Ranger and Tracker, Fred and May, were the absolute best. Going out of their way to ensure we got to see everything. Fred was incredibly knowledgeable of the park. Had answers for literally every question that was asked, and was constantly informing us of animal behaviors as we drove throughout the park.

White Pearl Resorts

Gorgeous. You have your own personal butler that helps you with everything. Olivia was incredible, setting up special meals for our honeymoon, bringing us cocktails even if we hadn't ordered them (but were definitely in the mood for), and just a lovely, nice woman.

Staff Review

Donna was exceptional. I'd give her more stars if I could. She really went the extra mile with helping us. Not only did she put together the perfect itinerary, but when we had flight problems heading to Mozambique, she was taking care of everything behind the scenes. We honestly didn't even know there were delays/cancellations, because she had arranged us to have a private plane take my wife and I to Mozambique. There were no hiccups the entire trip.
