“AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

We recently stayed at the Mhalit Guest House for one night after visiting Kruger Park and this place was ridiculously incredible. It is a beautiful place where each and every detail has been taken under consideration. It is clean, quiet (but not uptight) and the couple that run it are knowledgeable and great! The value for the cost is great. Super breakfast that was cooked to order, sitting at a huge breakfast table, enjoying nature and coffee. It was perfect. If we had known how close they were to Kruger and how amazing the rooms would be, we would have never stayed inside of Kruger Park. We would have spent our time here. Would recommend this to anyone visiting in South Africa and would go back there tomorrow!

Our stay at Guest Cottages Mhlati completed the fantastic experience that we had in the Kruger Park.

We will never forget how friendly and available we were received.

We will return, as promised, with our baby.

Thank you Janet and Eric.

We had the pleasure of staying at Mhlati guest Cottages recntly. As a group of six people with two small kids (4 & 5) we were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We travel a lot and were very impressed with the standard of accommodation and hospitality. Its refreshing to walk into a place that has a strong "client-centric" focus. Jan, Eric and Jeremy did everything they could to ensure our stay was comforatble and the perfect start to our south African holiday. The proximity to the Kruger was also perfect for our needs and resulted in a fantastic experience for all of us. We did a bit of research before choosing our accommodation, eveything you read on these pages is true. You'll be making a good decision by choosing to stay at Mhlati Cottages. Thanks again Eric, Jan & Jeremy

We needed accommodation for a wedding that we were attending in the Kruger. One of the venues the wedding couple recommended was Mhlati. So we booked. Mhlati guest cottages are very well maintained and we were surprised to hear that they have been operational for 10 years. The place gives the feel of been newly built. The units are immaculate. You live in the lap of luxury right by the Kruger at a fraction of the cost of other 4 star venues. Eric, Jan and their son made us feel welcomed from the moment we drove up the drive way. The included breakfast was superb and set you right for the day. It is very well situated with several restaurants close by and the Malelane gate about 1km down the road. I would highly recommend Mhlati Guest Cottages to anyone seeking accommodation near the Kruger.

Room Tip: The Buffalo suite is seperate from the rest of the cottages if you prefer secluded accomodation. The...

Beautiful place to stay, warm loving couple that really helped my husband, son and myself. Wonderful breakfast, comfortable bed (infact the best nights sleep we all had) and lively spacious rooms. A perfect way to end our South African holiday. Thankyou

If I should sum up my experience in one word, it would definately be FABULOUS. Being in the corporate trade I am, weekly travelling across South Africa is my life less than part of my life. After a strenuous day, returning to my comfortable luxurious room is a blessing. It's so nice to have access to a modern luxurious hot shower and warm bed just to relax. The DSTV provides a wide range of additional entertainment and the mornings wake you with the glorious sounds of the indigenous birdlife habitual to the Lowveld. For the holiday traveller being just 2km away from the Malelane Gate accessing the Kruger National Park, returning to the luxury of Mhlati Guest Cottage is a perfect wind down to a lovely day of game watching in the park. Eric and Jan are fabulous hosts and provides a range of meals served at breakfast to suit every palate. In short I would definately recommend Mhlati Guest Lodge for both business and holiday accomodation. Thanks Eric and Janet for a lovely four nights spent at your premises.
