Holiday to TanzaniaNoni L Aikens, 22nd June 2023
Our family trip was amazing. It was truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. From start to finish, we felt the love and attention to detail throughout our itinerary! Caroline and her team were super helpful and always responsive. Each property had its own personality that matched the needs of our vacation vibe! I'm overly grateful for this experience. This trip was an excellent introduction to East Africa and Mahlatini Travel! It is very hard to put into words the quality service we received and the luxury we experienced. Thanks to everyone who made this unforgettable experience possible!
Hamerkop House by Lemala
“The property was immaculate. Very warm, kind and accommodating staff. The food set the standard for the duration of the trip. Hats off to the chef and the house staff. Each bedroom was luxurious and well laid out. The grounds were spectacular. We wish we had more time there!”
“This was one of the most luxurious places we've ever stayed. From the 3-course meals to the exciting safari rides with Ranger Rahim, we could not have dreamed of a better experience in the Serengeti. The luxury tent was so well designed. It felt as though the entire property was designed with so much intention. Everything needed was available. The animals we were able to see and experience during our daily safari rides were so beautiful, it was humbling. We learned so much about the land and the natives. Each day we were greeted with warm smiles and we looked forward to the cool towels each day upon returning from our safari rides. We would especially like to thank our ranger and safari guide Rahim, the property manager Wright, Nelson and Emmanuel. Everyone was always so patient and kind, hats off to the chef and the entire staff. Lemala Nanyukie Tented Lodge is a must-do if you're going to the Serengeti.”
“Zuri Zanzibar is a place of luxury and wonder! Upon arrival, we were greeted with a beautiful smile from the property manager Susan. We were also greeted with cool towels and hibiscus punch, which was refreshing and well-received after such a long drive from the airport. Our Travel Expert Caroline was right when she said this was the perfect property for my family. The location on the beach was pristine. The room was, again, immaculate and luxurious. We received 5-star service each day of our stay. Each day/night they had something special on the beach that after day 1, became something we looked forward to each day/ evening. The spa is amazing. I visited the spa on 2 of the 4 days we were there for different services, and all were wonderful. Walking the grounds was so peaceful both day and night. We'd like to thank Rose at the pool restaurant for being so kind and accommodating. We'd also like to thank Frances at the beach restaurant for his excellent service and for sharing stories with us each day! And thank you to Preetam (F&B Manager) and Mohammad (captain of the sunset cruise boat) and Zahoro (sunset cruise leader). Zuri Zanzibar has left such a lasting impression on us. We want to try to visit the same property every other year if possible. Zuri Zanzibar is a property you must stay at if you're visiting Zanzibar.”
“Caroline has a special place in our family's heart for helping us make such a once-in-a-lifetime trip experience a reality and lasting travel memory possible! Caroline was great to work with. When I did my initial research on safari/beach holidays, I reached out to 3 different agencies. Caroline's entire response and confidence won me over. She was there for us the entire time to handle questions and deal with travel logistics. She was always on top of the travel requirements, bookings and all the sundry details that were communicated to us in a timely manner. She made all the preparation for our travel needs easy and we felt reassured that all was taken care of. Caroline's warmth, expertise, patience and knowledge of the area made our entire experience wonderful. Her expertise and the properties she selected for our trip were perfect for our family's needs. Caroline has a special niche for luxury for sure because that's all we experienced from start to finish! We would also like to thank Ceire Gibney for all of her help in proving pertinent travel information as we got closer to our departure date.”
