Overall Impressions

A life-changing experience. My husband and I booked our Honeymoon through Mahlatini and it was the best decision of our lives. This was the trip of a lifetime and memories we will cherish forever.

Countries Visited

Tanzania

Tanzania was such an incredible place. It is filled with so much beauty and wildlife. We felt so lucky to have experienced it all while saying at some of the most amazing places. There is so much depth to it and we cannot wait to go back and explore It further. Not to mention the people of Tanzania were some of the nicest and most welcoming people we have met.

Kenya

Kenya was just a stop over for us so we did not get to explore but are hoping to go back in the future to see all it has to offer.

Seychelles

This little island in the middle of the Indian ocean is truly a slice of heaven. Everything about this place is Paradise. From the white sand beaches to the clearest blue ocean it was magical. It was as relaxing as it was romantic. The most perfect place to finish our Honeymoon.

Accommodation Visited

Arusha Coffee Lodge

Arusha Coffee lodge was the perfect place to begin our Honeymoon. The grounds were so gorgeous and serene. We were able to relax and fight off our Jet Lag before starting our safari adventure.

Lemala Nanyukie

My husband and I stayed at Lemala Nanyukie for three nights during the safari portion of our honeymoon and it was a wonderful experience! From the moment we arrived, the managers Andrea and Rebecca were incredibly welcoming, helpful, and so friendly! Every member of the staff was wonderful and made sure we were well taken care of. No detail was ever overlooked. The camp itself is beautiful and luxurious, really a special place. When we first arrived to our tent, they had left us beautiful flowers, champagne, and a lovely note for our Honeymoon. As if the wonderful accommodations and the staff weren't enough, the camp's location in the midst of the Serengeti was the absolute highlight. We will never forget waking up to quite literally the most beautiful sunrise or enjoying our champagne on the deck as the sun went down. All while watching the wildlife of the serengeti go by. We highly recommend Lemala Nanyukie for a special stay.

Lemala Mpingo Ridge

Lemala Mpingo Ridge is an incredibly gorgeous property. My Husband and I spent 3 nights here as the second stop on our safari Honeymoon adventure. The views are incredible, the lodges are gorgeous, and the people are just so nice and welcoming. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely return for more time with Goodluck, John and crew. It was so incredible to go from the Serengeti to Tarangire, and seeing the different terrains Tanzania has to offer. We highly recommend making this a stop on your next safari adventure!

Four Points by Sheraton Nairobi Airport

Great place for the night if you are staying as a stop over. The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. We really enjoyed our dinner on the roof and our delicious breakfast buffet in the morning. Highly recommend!

The Four Seasons Seychelles

Absolute Paradise. From the minute you arrive at the Four seasons you are welcomed as if you are royalty. The staff goes above and beyond to make every guest feel special. As Honeymooners we were met with complimentary champagne almost every morning and constantly checked upon to see how they can better our stay. Our villa was absolutely stunning, private and perfect for Honeymooners. We walked in to a pre-made Bathtub filled with flowers that spelled out Love and views that can't be beat. The resort itself is unlike any place we have ever stayed. The beach was breathtaking and although public, every day felt as if we had the entire thing to ourselves. We were so impressed with their attention to detail to each and every guest. The entire staff new our names and no detail went overlooked. It was the most perfect, relaxing and most romantic way to end our Honeymoon. Not to mention a sunset that cannot even be put into words. One of the best places we have ever stayed and we cannot wait till our next four seasons experience.

Staff Review

When we first started working with Mahlatini, Monique was our travel agent. She was so incredible to work with. She truly listened to our vision and helped put together the absolute Honeymoon of our dreams, all while making sure we got the best bang for our buck. Unfortunately midway she took a different job opportunity and Steve took over. He seamlessly jumped in and was so incredibly helpful. Despite living around the world he was prompt at answering all of my emails and was always available to us. Planning a trip during Covid is stressful in itself but Steve made sure we were always up to date on the travel requirements and made It as easy as possible for us. When we arrived in Africa we were so impressed at the level of detail that was put in. No stone was unturned. Every transfer, lodging experience and flight was effortless for us. Not to mention there were Honeymoon extras thrown in at every stop along the way which made It that much more special. We cannot recommend Mahlatini enough and will definitely be working with them again in the future.
