We had spent a couple of hours exploring Kruger and were looking for a place to stay for the night, Eric was brilliant, he offered us a choice of accomodation at an excellent price, was welcoming and helpful with his advice. The rooms were clean comfortable, showers were hot, couldn't ask for anything more :-) The breakfast the next morning...

We left JHB midday and could not get to the Malelane gate in the KNP in time. We stayed at Mhlati and it was brilliant. Eric welcomed us and showed us to our room even after hours. The room was incredible! Mhlati is very close to the Malelane gate and thus meant we could be at the gate first thing...

I was privileged to stay at Mhlati Guest Cottage for a night whilst in Malelane for a job interview. I was warmly welcomed by the owners and my room (Leopard) was beautiful with free wi-fi, television, fridge, aircon, big bed and spacious shower. I had a quick swim in one of their two pools before, at the suggestion of the...

Extremely friendly hosts, in relaxed comfortable accommodation. Where would a host give you the keys to their car and allow you to use their car to drive yourself to dinner?? Mhlati is 2km from Kruger gate and the bridge leading into Kruger is a wonderful place to watch the animals and birds

A little disappointed for what we expected from a 4 star rated establishment. For the price you pay and what you get it is definitely not worth it. Very average breakfast. Linen not cotton, pillows need an upgrade. If you want a king size bed you have to request one. We did not get told this or offered one. We...

Thank you for your review William and we do appreciate your feedback. Regarding the pillows, we are upgrading our pillows as we speak. 1. In answer to your remark regarding kingsize beds, 65% of our guests are single business people staying one or two nights, golfers, hunters sharing.
