Client Reviews

vacation to South Africa & Zimbabwe

Divya Sharma, 2nd November 2023
Overall Rating:

We cannot say enough good things about our once-in-a-lifetime trip that wouldn't have been possible without Mahlatini. We fell in love with South Africa. They really took such good care of us and it was amazing to not have to think about any planning so we could truly be present and enjoy the experience. We are already dreaming up our next trip and can't wait to book with Mahlatini!

Divya Sharma Review

Accommodation Visited

African Elite Waterfront Apartments

“We really enjoyed the apartment style accommodation. Location was great, close to everything and very safe. We wanted to specifically call out our guide Samo while we were in Cape Town. Our trip simply would not have been the same without him. He was so kind, helpful, attentive, and so fun to chat with! Please pass this on to his company - we want to make sure they are aware and can pass our sentiments to Samo. :)”

Le Quartier Francais

“We loved this property and would absolutely go back. The room, service, staff, property, and location couldn't be beat. We felt fully relaxed the entire time!”

Chitwa Chitwa Private Game Lodge

“Chitwa was the highlight of our entire trip. We're not sure how to describe how magical it was - the property, staff, food, and guides. We cannot wait to bring family and friends back to Chitwa, which now holds a special place in our hearts.

Deon and Moses (our guide and tracker) were the absolute best. They made our stay extremely memorable, fun, and we learned so much.”

Oliver's Restaurant and Lodge

“This was our least favorite spot. We were very underwhelmed by the food and the room. There wasn't much nearby either so we didn't have many options to leave. The day trip to see Bylde was great, but the accommodation could have been better. Not sure if there are other options better than Oliver's in the area.”

Old Drift Lodge

“We really loved Old Drift Lodge, it was definitely a different experience being right on the Zambezi. The staff and room were great and we met new good friends along the way.

Our guide, Jeremiah was awesome. So friendly, kind, and knowledgeable. If there is a way to relay the sentiment to Old Drift Lodge that he really made our trip memorable that would be great.”

Staff Review

“Stuart was wonderful to work with! He really made the trip as smooth as possible and was very quick with communication. We are so appreciative of his patience with us especially early on when curating the trip. :) We hope to work with him again!

One small piece of feedback - it would have been great to have more information about logistics on a few of the days. For example, we were unaware of pickup times on some days that would have been helpful for planning or getting a better sense ahead of time of what the diving day looked like (ex. 2.5 hours drive, 6 hours on site, etc). Smaller nuanced thing that I don't want to take away from all the other feedback but wanted to pass along for the future!

Thank you again for such an incredible trip and experience that we will never forget!!”
