MMala Mala in South Africa’s Kruger has long been renowned for not only being one of the largest Big Five private game reserves in South Africa, but also for it’s amazing wildlife. The reserve shares an unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park and is located between the national park and Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Mala Mala has a river frontage which runs north to south within the reserve; the river attracts a wide array of predators during the drier winter months when the predators move around in search of water.

TThere is no shared traversing on 70 percent of the reserve, so Mala Mala guests can enjoy exclusive and uninterrupted game drives in the majority of the reserve, which means longer and more private wildlife sightings when you are on guided game drives. The reserve only allows a maximum of three vehicles per sighting which adds to the exclusivity when on safari. 

The reserve has some of the best guides within South Africa; the guides are all accredited with their field guide qualifications and have in-depth knowledge on wildlife, birding and flora.

Mala Mala has three camps on the reserve, each offering unique property options with luxurious comfort.

  • MalaMala Rattray’s Camp has eight luxury suites and is situated on the riverbank and offers a glimpse into safari characteristic of a bygone era.
  • MalaMala Sable Camp has seven luxury suites and is a more intimate option and also perfect for groups or larger families who wish to book the camp exclusively. It is situated on the southern end of the reserve.
  • MalaMala Camp is larger in size with 19 suites. The camp offers unrivalled views across the river and over the bush with a range of enjoyable communal facilities.

TThe reserve prides itself on its community and upliftment projects, which includes a bursary programme for staff, internship programme and school building projects. There is also a range of conservation projects which are ongoing; these include rhino anti-poaching projects and research & monitoring projects.
