MalaMala Game Reserve

South Afica's Legendary Private Game Reserve

MalaMala Game Reserve

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.

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.
