South Africa attractions - MalaMala Game Reserve is situated between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, in the heart of Big 5 safari territory. MalaMala is renowned as Africa's premier safari destination and it offers luxury safari lodge accommodation.


MalaMala Buffalo
 
There are no 'typical day’s' at MalaMala – each is different based on the wild animals and their movements and no return time to camp is the same. Rangers will take full advantage of cheetah hunting or a leopard feeding in a tree and obviously the guests requirements are considered.
 
MalaMala promises the finest game viewing on the African sub-continent and regularly provides the subject matter for a veritable collection of international and local wildlife documentaries (including National Geographic). Many of these documentaries have won international accolades amidst critical acclaim.

Several publications are available, showcasing the treasures that make the property one of the most sought-after on any traveller's itinerary.

It is a near-impossible task to bring to life a MalaMala safari through the written word, but the annual statistics published by the property serve to prove the frequency and consistency of Big 5 sightings experienced by visitors.

MalaMala Game Reserve is strategically sandwiched between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. The unfenced borders between MalaMala Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park on one side, and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin on the other allows animals to migrate unhindered to the perennial Sand River which flows north to south through MalaMala for 20 kilometres (13 miles). This well preserved wilderness is a “honey-pot” to the most sought-after wildlife species, as well as a host of smaller creatures. MalaMala is part of a conservation gene pool that covers 5.5 million acres of land in the heart of the South African Lowveld.

The reserve supports a variety of habitat types; dense riverine forest, acacia-combretum bushveld, open grassland and rocky outcrops, each sustaining different plant and animal species. Drives are varied and full, with a different outlook around each corner.

So why/how does MalaMala experience such phenomenal viewing success? Simply put, it’s due to:
Size and human habitation: 33000 acres (13 500 hectares) lie undisturbed, but for two safaris which meander through the wild with no more than 6 silent observers per vehicle each day. Human densities which have a direct impact on the environment have been kept to an absolute minimum. Only guests accommodated at one of the MalaMala camps enjoy this privately-owned game land.
MalaMala has practiced sound environmental management policies for years, well before “responsible tourism became the contemporary catch phrase.
Photographic safaris are conducted in open 4-wheel drive vehicles, allowing for total freedom of movement and the ability to leave the road and track down Africa's unique animals including the legendary Big Five - Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo.

MalaMala Interesting Facts

MalaMala is renowned internationally for the quality of its leopard viewing. 99% of guests spending 2 nights at MalaMala will experience more than one leopard sighting a day – many of which involve other predators and most certainly prey.
