Sable Camp at MalaMala

MalaMala is the oldest and most historical private game reserve in South Africa and the first to transition from hunting to photographic safaris. Tucked behind the Sand River, MalaMala Private Game Reserve lies between Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park. With six river view luxury suites and one waterhole view suite, MalaMala Sable Camp offers an intimate and secluded safari experience on the southern end of the Main Camp in a beautifully elevated position overlooking the Sand River and surrounding bushveld. MalaMala Sable Camp features an impressive lounge, air-conditioned dining room, cozy bar, library, fitness facility, and massage service. Expansive wooden decks provide a great space for relaxation from which to watch passing wildlife.  A pool with a spectacular view is perfect for summer afternoons while meals are enjoyed under starlit skies, on the deck, or in the enclosed dining room.

 

With expert rangers and trackers, your twice-daily game drives promise to be unforgettable adventures filled with wild wonders. Africa’s Big 5 as well as giraffe, zebra, antelope, cheetah, wild dog, hippo, and warthog will leave you mesmerized and intrigued. When not traversing the bush on a 4×4 safari drive, join your guide on a walking safari. This gives you an opportunity to learn about the flora and see smaller mammals, insects, and birds up close, providing exclusive photo opportunities.
