South Africa Safaris

South Africa is one of the best known safari destinations in Africa and arguably the best best place on the continent for up close sightings of the Big 5 animals (lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant). South Africa has so many different experiences to add to your holiday and combining a safari with a beach break break, a walking holiday or a city break in Cape Town is really simple with the myriad of private and national game parks available. There are so many reasons why you should choose South Africa for your safari, we have listed just some of our favourite reasons below:

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in South Africa, thank you for all of the booking and organisation. The assistance in Johannesburg on arrival and reorganisation of the onward flight was great. I would have no reservations in recommending Mahlatini, even better we will use the services again. Thank you and your team in all the assistance we received prior to the trip and during the trip.

The trip was really good. Everything worked well, all arrangements were clear and we had no issues. The only real problem was there was something wrong with the gearbox on the car we hired which was worrying and did affect our trip a bit. This wasn't your fault however as the car was easy to hire and literally brand new, so it was just one of those things. We did bring it to the attention of the car hire company who were reasonably helpful.
