My family and I stayed at this Guest Cottage between the 27th & 30th Dec 2014. The staff is very friendly and we loved their breakfast - especially their nicely prepared Egg Benedict. Overall, great food. Great people. The scenery is wonderful as can be expected from a tropical province. The fact that the Kruger National Park's Malalane entrance Gate... More

We returned to Mhlati,since Janet and Eric did offer us in the past such an excellent service, that being in the neighbourhood we have to return to them. This time we were very much surprised, they bought the villa next to them to and have turned it into a more than great lodge with own swimmingpool and it is very... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in December before going into Kruger. Very nice cottages in a lovely garden with 2 nice pools. There was only one restaurant close by, Hamiltons - fortunately it was a good one! The owners very welcoming as well as their cute dogs.

After having spent 2 days in the Kruger Park we arrived quite tired at Mhlati Guest Cottages and we were completely overwhelmed how beautiful it was! This is the perfect place (an oasis) to stay outside Kruger Park. Malelane Gate is just a short drive away and there is also a very good restaurant (Hamiltons). The owners, Eric and Janet,... More

We recently stayed at the B&B close to the Malelane gate... Eric and his wife was very friendly and Eric waited for us until late as we arrived much later than planned - we were grateful... The breakfast was tasty, but not really in line with what we are use to... as an example no proper cheese, only little Melrose... More

So there we were, tired after our overnight flight and a 6 hour drive, too late to enter Kruger, and looking for shelter. And we found Mhlati, quiet, luxurious, welcoming, you just can't get any luckier than that. Lovely hosts, excellently positioned just down the road from the Malelane Gate, a splendid restaurant (Hamiltons) just a short drive away. A... More

We only stayed one night here but next time we are in the area, we'll definitely stay longer. Beautifully designed cottages with friendly and helpful owners. It would be a handy stop-over destination to visit Kruger National Park but outside the gates. Many thanks.
