MalaMala Camp Location Map

MalaMala is one of South Africa's legendary and exclusive safari destinations, and is internationally acknowledged as one of the 'top game viewing destinations in the world'.

MalaMala Camp is set in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Sand River. The spacious and beautifully decorated guest lounge leads onto an expansive wooden deck which provides an elevated view of animals drinking and bathing in the river. Dinner under the stars in a reed enclosed boma or around a log fire, under the starry African sky, is yet another highlight of the MalaMala experience. 

Only guests accommodated at one of the 3 MalaMala camps may traverse this immense 13,500 hectares of privately owned game land.  Daily safaris are conducted in open 4-wheel drive vehicles to track down Africa's Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo.  After dark, spotlight safaris provide the opportunity to view nocturnal creatures and carnivores on the hunt. Walking safaris can also be arranged on request.

The individually decorated, spacious and comfortable rooms and suites at MalaMala Camp are under traditional thatching. Each one offers views of the surrounding bush from a private verandah. 'His' and 'hers' bathrooms, temperature control and a mini bar are just a few of the luxuries offered when you stay here.

The luxury and comfort of the camp, combined with the exhilarating game drives and guided walks in beautiful unspoilt wilderness, is incomparable.
