The whole trip was an unforgetable experience from start to finish. We went to Africa in 2013 with Mahlatini and got engaged whilst we were there. When it came to planning where to have the wedding we knew there was no other place we could consider getting married. It was amazing to be able to go back and share it with our friends and family. They have now fallen in love with Africa as much as us!
So good to go back. We were a little aprehensive following the recent terror attacks in the capital but when we were out there we felt safe and at ease. The people were welcoming, friendly and couldn't do enough to make your stay amazing. The safari was again out of this world and we saw everything imagineable. The only comment we would make would be about the transfers in Nairobi which were arranged by the supplier in Kenya. During the journey from the airport to the hotel/airstip. The Drivers were both great but the routes taken were a little unorthadox and took us very close to the notorious area of Eastleigh in Nairobi. We drove down some very 'residential' roads surrounded by houses covered in glass shards and barbed wire. Some roads were actually 'off road' down dirt tracks. We got there in once piece and probably quicker than if we had taken the highway but given the security alert the country was going through at the time and the fact the hotel staff said it was dangerous the way we went it might be worth noting for future transfers.
Stunning! Our lodge was very secluded which was wonderful. We will never see an area so unspoilt again. The lake was beautiful and provided brilliant snorkelling.

We can't thank Nikki enough for everything she has done for us. Not only did she help us plan and tailor-make a trip of a lifetime for us and our family but she also became our official wedding planner! When deciding where to go for our honeymoon Nikki came up with the unique suggestion of Lake Malawi. We are so glad we let her suggest where to go as it ended up being the most incredible location which will be hard to beat. Nothing was ever too much to ask and over the course of almost a year she promptly responded to every silly email/request I sent (there were a lot of these!) and worked hard to get us everything from the right minister for our wedding to the beautiful flowers which were flown in to the Mara. We have never had service like this before and she truly went above and beyond showing genuine care in everything she did. Not only is she amazing at her job, she is also the most wonderful person and I am so glad she was able to play a part in helping us plan the most special day of our lives. We simply can't recommend her highly enough and we hope to deal with her again in the future. Thank you so much Nikki.
