MalaMala Game Reserve / Kruger National Park
About Mala Mala Game Lodge
MalaMala Game Reserve borders on the Kruger National Park in the heart of the South African Lowveld. Situated in prime big game territory, Malamala Private Game Reserve has succeeded in combining the wilds of Africa with the comforts of five star hospitality and facilities.
MalaMala Main Camp
In 1964, MalaMala was purchased by the Rattray family who, by combining the best of the past with contemporary comforts and luxury turned MalaMala Main Camp into one of the world’s top safari lodges.
Harry’s Camp is the smallest and most intimate camp in the MalaMala Game Reserve. Elevated on the banks of the perennial Sand River, the Ndebele-styled and decorated buildings of Harry’s Camp enjoy an uninterrupted view of the river and the African bush. The camp is set amongst mature, indigenous African trees in lush surroundings rolling down to the river’s edge.
Game drives and bush walks accompanied by qualified rangers:
Photographic safaris are conducted in open 4-wheel drive vehicles which allows tracking deep into the bush to view Africa’s Big Five – Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Elephant and Buffalo.
After dark, spotlight safaris provide the opportunity to view nocturnal creatures and carnivores on the hunt and walking safaris with an armed ranger can be arranged on request.
The high rate of viewing success is directly attributed to the fact that MalaMala comprises 16,000 hectares making it the largest privately owned game reserve in South Africa. Strictly conserved, human density and impact on the land is kept to an absolute minimum. Another reason for the large diversity of game is the unfenced border between MalaMala and the Kruger National Park, which allows herds of animals to migrate unhindered to the perennial Sand River.
