Situated in the prime game viewing territory of the legendary Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve, Mala Mala Sable Camp offers a truly exclusive and intimate safari experience. With space for a maximum of 14 guests, the luxurious Sable Camp looks out over the magnificent Sand River and guarantees some of the best game viewing on the continent. Ideal for guests who are after a more intimate safari experience, Sable Camp is made up of five individually decorated suites that are spacious and comfortable. Each suite is strategically positioned to have a vantage point from which to admire the panoramic view.
Sable Camp takes every opportunity to soak up the surrounds, with rustic decks, a boma for fireside dining under the stars and the large bush-facing verandahs. Guest facilities at Sable Camp include a peaceful air-conditioned library, as well as safari bar and dining room. A large wooden viewing deck looks out on the steady flow of the Sand River and the wildlife that comes there to drink. A swimming pool is nestled in the flood plain below the camp.
Most days start with an early morning game drive in specially designed open sided 4×4 vehicles that allow for off-road driving. Your ranger will track and get close to animals for incredible photographic opportunities of the Big Five, as well as the other abundant varieties of plant, bird and animal life that have their home here. Birding in the area is also excellent.
Guests can enjoy the smaller aspects of the individual habitats on the guided bush walks that take place after breakfast, which may also lead to encounters with some of the big game along the way.
Late afternoon game drives take you off into the sunset, after which you will spend some time driving at night keeping a look out for some of the more illusive, nocturnal creatures that only venture out after dark.
Emanating the luxury and opulence of this area’s colonial history, Mala Mala Sable Camp is an exclusive destination full of character and history and guarantees guests a truly memorable African safari experience.
