Overall Impressions

Couldn't have asked for better in terms of experience in African and Dubai

Countries Visited

Kenya

Glorious! Absolutely amazing. From the people, the sights, the scents - everything. Absolutely magical. Its a county I'd love to actually go back to and see more of. I would 100% recommend people to go

United Arab Emirates

We've been to Dubai before and it actually ended up being a bit of a culture shock after Africa and the solitude and quiet and natural beauty. Don't get me wrong, its beautiful in its own way but Kenya was so special

Accommodation Visited

Hemingways Nairobi

I only wish we'd more time to stay here as the property itself is just beautiful, as soon as you turn off the road through the drive and gardens and it all opens up behind the main building itself. Staff were very helpful, food and drinks were of high quality and over all we were taken care of so well to an exceptional level.

Ol Seki Hemingways Mara

Stand out- yes roasting because it is the middle of the Mara and you've no air-conditioning but this is such a special place to us. The staff from the general manager, to all the serving staff in the camp to the exceptionally knowledgeable guides - and really any day that starts with a view of Giraffes rambling around cant be a bad day?! Special mention to the roses on Valentines day (and amazing chocolate cake with dinner) - when you consider location and how difficult it must be to get supplies and manage that they make it look so easy.

Madinat Jumeirah Mina A'Salam

Lovely property, a bit on the more impersonal side and my husband was charged for thing in error and had no luck with the hotel itself to resolve the issue. Nothing technically wrong - the most comfortable (And largest) bed I've ever stayed in. This is a great option for half board in the general complex as there's so much choice. We didn't ever really have to leave which is what we wanted.

Staff Review

Nikki I'd give you 10/10 no problem. From initial contact all the way through the process and all the questions - I couldn't have asked for better. We are so happy we went with Mahlatini and we have recommended you to loads of our friends. A fountain of knowledge and happy to answer all my strange and weird questions!
