Overall Impressions

My first ever safari & it more than matched expectations; seeing the animals in their own natural habitat (the Kruger provides quite a stunning background!) was quite emotional!

Countries Visited


Beautiful island, with lovely, friendly people - highly recommendable!

South Africa

Cannot wait to go back, absolutely fell in love with SA, want to visit & explore much further for much longer next time!

Accommodation Visited

Elephant Plains Game Lodge

Absolutely cannot fault location, staff, food or price at Elephant Plains, I can't wait to go back!

Hippo Hollow Country Estate

Hippo Hollow provided an enjoyable overnight welcome, the hospitality, food & staff were great, but we would have preferred to stay at Elephant Plains for our whole stay!

Constance Belle Mare Plage

The location, hospitality, staff & food were magnificent; however, the cost of food & drink rather spoiled it somewhat

Staff Review

Claire's knowledge & expertise was the sole reason I booked with Mahlatini!
