At Mahlatini, we offer luxury, bespoke holidays to suit every traveller's tastes. Sometimes, a one stop holiday just isn't enough which is why we suggest some of the best Twin Centres to double - even triple - up on destinations. For 2021 we recommend single-country adventures when possible to minimise travel time between your different destinations.

Kenya and Seychelles

Combine an iconic East African safari with untouched, Indian Ocean beaches.

One of our personal favourites, as well as a best seller, a trip encompassing the breathtaking beauty of the Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya and the simple island bliss of the Seychelles. The Masai Mara is known for large populations of big cats such as lions, leopards and cheetahs and part of the annual great migration of animals across the plains. It's an absolute haven for wildlife spotting. Fly next to the never ending seas of the Seychelles, perfect for those seeking a romantic, secluded week of indulgence.
