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.

What can I say about Mhlati Guest Cottages (MGC) that hasn't already been said by the many 5 star reviews that others have posted on Tripadvisor? The owners are very warm and accommodating: - They lent us their binoculars (which helped us spot game in the Kruger Park that we otherwise would not have), without us even asking for them!... More
