Overall Impressions

As ever, our Mahlatini holiday was superb from start to finish; Greg Fox arranged the holiday very effeciently and always gave us valued advice throughout. We went to Kenya on safari and stayed at the Kicheche Camp in the Masai Mara; which I can only describe as first class and faultless. Afterwards, we travelled to Zanzibar which again was lovely. The organisation, transfers and choice of accommodation was excellent, thanks to Mahlatini.This is the second time we've used Mahlatini, and I very much doubt it will be the last!

Dream of Zanzibar 2

Unfortunately, this was our choice of hotel. Advertised as a 5*, it simply wasn't! The surroundings/hotel grounds are stunning, but apart from this, we were terribly disappointed. Hard bed (2 single beds pushed together), poor shower with absolutely no power. The swimming pools were freezing (I mean freezing; almost unswimable); the food was totally average. In the buffets not everything was marked and sometimes the staff didn't know what the food was. The restaurants in the evening (they have a Chinese/African and Pizza one) are depressing-we looked into all and opted for the Chinese one; we expected a choice of food but got no choice at all...very poor. We left the resort after 3 nights-having booked 8-enough said I'm afraid.
