MalaMala Game Reserve

“Not even Tanzania’s famed Serengeti Game Reserve or the awesome Ngorongoro Crater fills your camera viewfinder faster with Africa’s legendary Big Five … At MalaMala, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros and elephant appear magically.” – Acclaimed wildlife photojournalist Geoff Dalglish, The Sunday Times.

MalaMala Game Reserve shares a border with world-renowned Kruger National Park and is the oldest private reserve in South Africa. In fact, the safari industry’s blueprint for luxury photographic safaris was developed on this 33,000-acre terrain.

Guests are offered luxurious accommodations in the Main Camp, Sable Camp and Rattray’s on MalaMala. Disabled travelers will also find superlative comfort in a fully equipped suite. All rates on this website are for 2018.

MalaMala Main Camp

Mala Mala is one of the oldest lodges in the Sabi Sands. As such, you can be sure it has one of the best locations in the reserve. Mala Mala Main Camp provides a unparalleled safari experience, while enjoying the comforts of staying in a classic South Africa bushlodge.

MalaMala Sable Camp

Situated at the southern end of the main camp, in a prime elevated position overlooking the Sand River and surrounding bushveld, Sable Camp accommodates a maximum of 14 guests.

Rattray’s on Malamala

Mala Mala Rattray's Camp offers a safari feeling of a bygone era. It takes you back to Karen Blixen's 'Out in Africa'. This is a colonial style safari lodge, with each of the eight rooms situated on elevated sites so that there are picture perfect views over the Sand River.
