Over this past weekend, we helped our son and his family move to Malelane. After the long trip and helping them to unpack their many boxes, it was such a treat to be able to go to Mhlati Guest Cottages and completely relax. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Eric and showed to our pool-side cottage - "Elephant". The...

This place is amazing. Beautifully designed and executed. Cottages are themed (I chose a rustic bush one which was anything but - I felt like I was in a world class b&b). Proximity to Krueger with this level of style cannot be beat. Grounds are delightful. 2 small pools are well maintained and the perfect size. Eric and Janet are...

We left JHB midday and could not get to the Malelane gate in the KNP in time. We stayed at Mhlati and it was brilliant. Eric welcomed us and showed us to our room even after hours.

Extremely friendly hosts, in relaxed comfortable accommodation. Where would a host give you the keys to their car and allow you to use their car to drive yourself to dinner?? Mhlati is 2km from Kruger gate and the bridge leading into Kruger is a wonderful place to watch the animals and birds
