South Africa has become a conservation world leader. For well over one hundred years, South Africans have been conserving their wildlife and natural heritage, and this is felt on a South African safari. In fact, the world-renowned Kruger National Park offers a safari experience that ranks with the best in Africa, both in diversity of wildlife, landscapes and level of service.

The accommodation and service on offer in South Africa's safari regions is arguably the best on the continent. The safari destinations are also easily accessed with the sophisticated road network and array of regional airstrips and small airports.

South Africa is one of the few countries in Africa to offer malaria-free reserves, making a South Africa safari the perfect destination for a family safari adventure. Many lodges in South Africa specialise in child-friendly safaris with dedicated children's programmes and family sized accommodation.

Many members of staff at Mahlatini are South African natives and have grown up visiting the game reserves. With this expert, first-hand knowledge our team are pleased to help and advise you on the best choice for your safari.

One of our best trips EVER. The accommodation and service in each location was just impeccable as was the food - South Africa has been on our bucket list for a while and it did not disappoint. A honeymoon to remember.

From the moment you arrive everything is so well executed and the standard of accommodation has always been of the highest quality... We can't wait for our next…
