Overall Impressions

Amazing. Just thoroughly blew my expectations out of the water. My travel counselor (Caroline) couldn't have scripted a better safari experience for me. Just outstanding and Mahlatini has ruined me for exploring any other tour operators now that I know have Caroline's guidance and experience to rely upon.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Again amazing - I wanted to see wild animals and saw everything I wanted to see. &Beyond; facilities were outstanding - the tour guides were wonderful and the accommodations, food and service were wonderful. Just superb and again I want to thank Mahlatini and Caroline for making my experience so incredible.

Accommodation Visited

Ngala Tented Camp

My Ranger Nick and Tracker Adam were outstanding. Dennis, the GM, took excellent care of me and the room was super. All three of the camps were unique and special in their own way, but I really liked Ngala for the game density and variety.

Kirkman's Kamp

Again, my Ranger, Wayde and my Tracker Eckson were excellent. I liked the historical feel of the camp and the food and room was, again, just super.

Phinda Rock Lodge

I (also) really liked the Rock Lodge. The intimacy of the camp was super and the bird species were amazing.

Hilton Sandton

The Hilton was nice, but could use some touch up in the rooms. Not bad and similar to a Hilton in the US - nondescript and after Ngala, Kirkman's and Rock Lodge, I was probably a little spoiled.

Staff Review

THE BEST. I feel like I've made a friend who knows everything about Africa and wants me to have as good an experience as possible. Caroline is funny, smart, and really has a superb knowledge. I won't use another counselor now that I have worked with the best.
