Overall Impressions

Kruger + Mauritius is an excellent target for bush & beach "hunters"

Countries Visited

South Africa 3

Everything worked well. Road borders were in many places full of garbage and the condition of the roads (except the main roads) were not well. Sometimes even dangerous due to multiple and deep holes in the asphalt.

Mauritius 4

Beatiful and friendly country. One of the best holiday places we have visited, but a bit far away from Europe. And it offers also great deep see fishing experiences.

Accommodation Visited

OR Tambo City Lodge 3

An optimum hotel for passengers who want just to overnight between the flights in a clean mid class hotel.

Serondella Game Lodge 5

One of the best experiences ever encountered, in all aspects: the variety of animals, friendliness of the staff, the experience of driver and tracker, good food and hut, customer focus everywhere in operations and the overall atmosphere. We could give more than 5 if possible ;)

Elephant Plains Game Lodge 4

Great food and cottage, good tracker and driver. Some of the evening game drives, especially the one where we followed the lions through bushes, were unforgettable. But not so cozy as Serondella and perhaps not so big variety of animals what we saw in Thornybush? Rather long way to airport through bad roads.

Merville Beach 4

Great beach and location, good and friendly service. Rooms were very ok. A minus came from a cockroach we found in bathroom.

Staff Review 5

We are very pleased of the service got from Donna Flynn and in general from Mahlatini: Everything worked timely as planned. No negative surprises encountered (but many positive thought). If passengers visit many game lodges and Serondella includes in them, perhaps it is better to visit Serondella last.
