For anyone considering booking Mahali Mzuri, don't hesitate, you won't be disappointed. Every member of the staff is exceptional. Nothing is too much effort. Our guide John was incredibly knowledgeable and... More

First of all, this was our fourth safari trip - after South Africa (where we stayed at another Richard Branson property - Ulusaba, which is also fantastic), Tanzania (Ngorongoro and Serengeti), and Zambia (South Luangwa). Each safari was different. South Africa gets you right up close to the animals and you get to see rhinos which are so difficult to... More

Amazing views, great game drives and great accommodation. All it lacked, when we were there, was a decent chef to be perfect. I am sure this has been sorted by now. Staff were really helpful. Spa - excellent ... having a massage under the watchful eye of a passing giraffe was novel.
