Overall Impressions

We had the most marvellous time. There are no words to describe the service of Mahlatini, the beautiful country of Kenya, its wildlife, its hospitality and people. We had the time of our lives and a trip we will never forget. Mahlatini were very professional from start to finish, we could not fault them. There was not one hitch in the programme. We can't describe how wonderful everything was and the best part was Kenya, Kenya, Kenya! Elaine and I are most definitely making plans to go back.

Countries Visited

Kenya 5

Absolutely loved it!!! We would go back in a heart beat. My husband (who did not come on the trip) was very concerned about the terrorists attacks in the country before we went. My daughter and I felt safe at all times having a driver all to ourselves probably helped.

Mauritius 2

I am sorry to say that Elaine and I were very disappointed with the island of Mauritius. We were not expecting to see so much poverty right around the island!!! Especially after arriving in a very contemporary airport. Some how money has been displaced in this country. We found the island very dirty and there was most definitely lack of road signs! We would not recommend Mauritius as a holiday destination unless you are quite happy to stay in the hotel.

Accommodation Visited

Tortilis Camp 5

We absolutely loved Tortilis Camp and the staff. The managers were awesome. We though everything was brilliant. My dietary needs were catered for at every turn and the guide was phenomenal!!! We would recommend this camp and Elaine and I are planning on returning to Tortilis in the future. the school and the village was enlightening and the children were a delight. We miss this place so much!!!!

Elephant Pepper Camp 4

Elephant Pepper Camp was beautiful well kept and very clean. the staff looked petrified of the current manager. He was distant and aloof to us and not as friendly as the previous camp managers. Apart from him everything was brilliant. a great experience being open to the wildlife.

House of Waine 5

The accommodation was of a high standard and the food was excellent. The staff were very friendly and courteous. Its location was perfect for our stay in Nairobi and for the activities that we had booked. I would recommend House of Waine.

Constance Belle Mare Plage 5

Belle Mare Plage is a lovely hotel which was kept clean and tidy at all times. The staff were excellent, friendly and very helpful. The food was fantastic and so much to choose from with a theme nearly every night. Not all the restaurants were open due to the time of the year but the best experience we had was in the Deer Hunter located beside the Golf Course.

Staff Review 5

Again, we were very impressed with the friendly service. Everyone was very helpful, considerate and friendly.
