When my sister and I (both in our early 20s) decided to travel to South Africa from Vancouver, Canada for adventure, almost everyone we told advised us against it because of its dangerous reputation. Our experience at Malandela was one that we will never forget. We arrived at Malandela after our Kruger Safari when our original hotel we had booked with told us they had no rooms available. With little knowledge of the surrounding area and how we were to get dinner, Marina and her husband went over the top to make us feel comfortable and safe. They invited us into their living room to watch a Springboks rugby match and later Marina drove us to a restaurant so we could grab a bite to eat. We had to fly out at 7am the following morning and just as we were packing up to leave Marina brought a tray of biscuits and tea to our room so we wouldn't be hungry for our flight. We were extremely touched by the family's story, how welcome we felt and their generosity. They went above and beyond and when we go back to South Africa we will book directly with Malandela.
