Welcome to MalaMala Game Reserve

As one of the largest private Big Five game reserves in South Africa, MalaMala Game Reserve is the benchmark for a luxury safari experience. Located in the pristine wildlife area right between the world-renowned Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve, MalaMala offers an unrivalled game viewing adventure.

In an effort to reduce the human footprint on MalaMala, the bed and vehicle densities have been kept purposefully low to allow a higher density of wildlife. Their unyielding focus on preserving and protecting the land has resulted in one of the most exclusive safari destinations – presenting Africa at its most beautiful and bountiful.
With over 55 years of game viewing experience, MalaMala utilises its superior knowledge to manage safaris and sightings with the utmost respect for the animals. On arrival, you are introduced to your ranger – who acts as your personal host, guide and educator.
The three beautiful camps all offer an intimate foray into the magic of the African bush with elegance and refinement. Wake up in paradise to enjoy unparalleled views from the private deck or veranda. With a filtered swimming pool and massage service at each camp, MalaMala also allows guests to quietly reconnect with the beating heart of Africa.

Another highlight of your stay will be dinner under the African sky in a lit traditional reed boma.

It’s all about the wildlife at MalaMala Game Reserve!
