Wow,wow,wow!! I have travelled all over south africa-and learnt that websites can be deceitful-but not Mthunzi.what you see on the website is exactly what you get. The 2 weeks felt like home away from home. Mthunzi is tranquility+class!!Your staff was friendly, helpful and warm. Thank you soooooo much for taking care of me and the many different groups that were with me. I will truly come back on a personal capacity.
