Overall Impressions

Ease of booking, Claire picked several options for us to look at, so didnt feel over-whelmed with choices, other travel agents just sent us their brochure, and there are just too many choices, so Mahlatini took all that away and made it easy and fun! Safari was unbelievable, totally spoilt and really went to town on the fact it was our honeymoon - felt very very spoilt

Countries Visited


Beaches and sea wonderful, clean, warm, picturesque People very friendly Expensive due to dollar

South Africa

Unable to put into words how fabulous Exeter River Lodge was!

Accommodation Visited

Dulini River Lodge

If only there was a better tab than "excellent"!! Unbelievable accomodation, most luxurious, wonderful place I have ever been to, staff so friendly and helpful, and game drives incredible

Benguerra Island Lodge

Slightly more rustic - quite a lot more rustic actually! Felt slightly vulnerable at night having no windows or doors, shower curtain fit really badly, so room flooded every time we had a shower, not very nice! Extra activities were ridiculously expensive - think you might need to forewarn people of this, as it is USA dollar e.g $120 2 hour horse ride (didnt do it!) $575 half day fishing..... over the top in our opiion! But food delicious, staff very friendly, beaches stunning, sea warm.... lovely!!

Staff Review

As I said above, Claire picked a few options and responded really quickly to my emails. She didnt get fed up of making suggestions in response to my emails, and I felt she really wanted us to have a fab holiday - which we did thanks to her!
