Overall Impressions

Honestly can't pick any specific highlights as it was a holiday of a lifetime start to finish. Kicheche Mara was something very special though, hence why we are already booking our wedding there for next year using Mahlatini again.

Countries Visited


Friendly people and breathtaking views in the Mara. Could return time and time again.


Zanzibar very good, beautiful beaches and lush forests. More of a tipping/begging culture here than Kenya but not overly so.

Accommodation Visited

Kicheche Mara Camp

Fantastic, booking wedding there for 2014. Saw everything on safari and the guides/managers/rooms are spot on. The best trip we have ever been on and has a big space in our hearts. Just loved it!

Pongwe Beach Hotel

A piece of paradise! Great rooms, amazing beach and fab food. A couple of mistakes from staff including incorrect bills etc but that's only if I'm being very fussy. Would definitely go again and have recommended to family for onward travel after our wedding at Kicheche.

Staff Review

Nikki has been an absolute pleasure to deal with and we can't commend her enough. She has been so efficient, friendly, helpful and adds so much excitement in to planning the trip - she genuinely cares and that means a lot. We have recommended Mahlatini and Nikki to everyone!!
