Main Camp at Mala Mala

Ancient History, Pride in Heritage..
Mala Mala private reserve, Sabi Sands reserve
Greater Kruger

MalaMala Main Camp is the oldest and most historical private game reserve in South Africa and the first to make the transition from hunting to photographic safari's. It is the blueprint on which the South African safari industry was built. Every aspect of the MalaMala Main Camp is designed to appreciate and enjoy the view of the surrounding wilds. 


Pathways wind their way along the perimeter of the camp to reveal individual ochre colored units tucked into the greenery which flanks the Sand River.
Massive trees and rolling green lawns are filled with birdsong, with the occasional antelope or elephant which seeks the succulence of greenery.

The camp is unfenced - an oasis in the middle of the bushveld.

The ochre-coloured buildings of MalaMala Main Camp are clustered amid shady trees and manicured lawns overlooking the Sand River. The individually decorated, spacious and comfortable rooms under traditional thatching offer spectacular views of the river and the wildlife and birdlife that are attracted to the water for refreshment and refuge from the hot African sun.

The rooms are equipped with 'his-and-hers' bathrooms, 24 hour temperature control, insect proofing, direct dial telephones, a mini-bar and a mini-safe.

Despite the comfort offered, MalaMala retains an authentic bushveld camp atmosphere, where the attention to detail for which MalaMala is world-famous shines through.

Dinner is another highlight of the MalaMala experience and is served around a log-fire in the grand old African manner, under star-punched skies and in a reed boma - a MalaMala tradition for over 60 years.

The delectable dinner fare features a smorgasbord of bush cuisine, including venison specialties and outstanding South African wines.
