Overall Impressions

We had an absolutely incredible honeymoon thanks to Mahlatini and their partners in Kenya and Tanzania! We had to push our trip out a year due to the pandemic, but our travel expert worked closely with us to ensure we were updated on each change. She was able to secure our exact same trip at the same price. We originally worked with Monique; she left for another position shortly before our trip, but our new travel expert, Stuart, did an excellent job of getting us through the home stretch. This tells me the entire team is reliable and will do a great job to ensure their clients have a smooth and happy holiday. Each accommodation we stayed at exceeded our expectations. The staff and guides took excellent care of us, and the wildlife encounters were unbelievable. Thank you, Mahlatini, for helping us have our dream honeymoon! -Janina and Will

Countries Visited



Accommodation Visited

Mount Meru Hotel

Very comfortable and hospitable first stop! We were here just one night, but enjoyed our stay. Conveniently located near the national park; we enjoyed the breakfast selections.

The Manor at Ngorongoro

Beautiful and serene, with a kind, friendly, and thoughtful staff! Special thanks to our butler Peter, who took great care to ensure our meals were special and that we had everything we needed.

Lemala Mara

Excellent, comfortable camp with an unbeatably unique location! We wish we could have stayed longer! The staff was very friendly and ensured we had everything we could want/need. The food here was delicious - perhaps our favorite out of our entire trip! Special thanks to our attendant Charles and our incredible guide Eugin, who ensured we had exceptional wildlife viewing opportunities.

Saruni Mara

Absolutely magical place! Saruni Mara is very special - from the location, to the ambiance, to the exceptional staff. We really appreciated the connection Saruni seems to have made with the local community. Our guide Tinka is part of the community and was incredibly knowledgeable of the land and the wildlife. We had an incredible time and hope to return again soon!

Staff Review

Excellent! We primarily worked with Monique for nearly 2 years; she left just a couple months before our trip. We were nervous to start with someone new, but Stuart took great care of us and made sure we had everything we needed to have a comfortable and seamless trip.
