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

I can thoroughly recommend Mhlati Guest House. The hosts are delightful, knowledgeable and more than supportive. The premises are immaculate maintained, friendly and cosy just as your home should be. The proximity to Kruger National Park is perfect for self-drive day trips.
