It first opened for business in the 1960's and has been providing international visitors with luxury accommodation and some of the finest game-viewing on a South African safari since then. Mala Mala Main Camp offers a swimming pool as well as a large boma where dinners are enjoyed on some evenings.

Riaan's Review

Mala Mala is the finest private safari reserve in South Africa if the quality of game viewing is your most important concern. This private reserve is synonymous with eco-tourism in South Africa. The reserve is almost twice as large as the second largest private Big Five reserve in the greater Kruger National Park. The camp is very well-managed and offers fine accommodation. The rangers at Mala Mala Main Camp are all university-qualified. On the occasions when I have been to Mala Mala, I have had remarkable sightings. One that stands out is a leopard cub stalking a steenbok for over twenty minutes.
