Sound conservation management has ensured an environmental sanctuary for an impressive density and diversity of wildlife. Striving for a maximum of 4 guests per safari vehicle this wildlife wonderland that is MalaMala unfolds. Sightings of the Big Five and the interactions of the various species along the food chain from ants to elephants provides visitors with a glimpse of Africa as it has always been - untouched by the modern human hand.

Best of the Best

Some of the most memorable moments of a safari come after dark, a fact recognized by MalaMala Game Reserve’s expert rangers. On your evening drives, your guide shines a spotlight through the bush to locate nocturnal creatures, the sight of which will take your breath away. Your exotic, luxurious camp accommodations — there are three from which to choose — offer even more views; a wide wooden deck overlooks the Sand River, where animals parade in a seemingly steady stream. With its unparalleled wildlife viewing and congenial atmosphere, it’s little wonder MalaMala has set the standard for other safari camps.

Hotel Tip

Consider the Wilderness and Wildlife tour, which includes both MalaMala and its sister reserve, Mount Anderson — two distinctly different but fascinating areas.

Mala Mala was amazing! A very intimate experience with superb service and excellent food. Our Rangers (Yuri & Murry) were great and they were with us throughout our stay. In addition to serving as our guides on safari, they joined us for all our meals and drinks in the bar at the end of the day. The bartender was also great and a lot of fun. Everyone at Mala Mala was so personable and made us feel as though we were the most special people they had ever had the pleasure of knowing. If you can only stay at one safari lodge in South Africa, this is the place to stay. It should not be missed.
