Everything about Mala Mala Main Camp, which is situated between the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park, is designed to absorb the breath taking views of the surrounding landscapes. From the floodplains beyond the camp, to the granite outcrops of Sithlawayise and Campbell Koppies that stand guard over the area, on down to the magnificent Sand River that winds its way through the sanctuary bringing life to each and every eco-system that flourishes in the area. The world famous Mala Mala Main Camp is an unfenced oasis in the middle of the Southern African bushveld.
Mala Mala Main Camp is known for its exceptional game viewing and luxurious accommodation, making it one of the most rewarding safari destinations in the country. Ideal for families, friends and honeymooners alike Mala Mala was the first privately owned game reserve that offered eco-tourism as an alternative to hunting. Now guests are guaranteed an incredible variety of plant, bird and animal life, including likely sightings of the famed Big Five, cheetah and wild dog.
The reserve’s conservation policies allow for a maximum of 36 guests at the camp. Each of the luxury suites are spacious, thatched rondavels (round bungalows) that are decorated with traditional African style artwork. Each suite is air-conditioned, has ‘his’ and ‘her’ bathrooms and a glass sliding door that opens up onto a private viewing deck.
Guest areas include the comfortable Buffalo Lounge, which leads out onto an expansive deck, providing an unhindered view of the animals watering at the river. The haute bush cuisine is served up under the stars in a beautiful reed enclosed boma.
Mala Mala’s 13 500 hectares (33 000 acres) of pristine game viewing land are enhanced by its location on the unfenced border of the Kruger National Park. Herds of wildlife are able to migrate unhindered to the Sand River, meaning guests are in the prime viewing location. Take morning and evening game drives deep into the reserve, or get up close and personal with the smaller aspects of the surrounding habitats on a guided bush walks.
