Mala Mala Main Camp

...

... is located in Sabi Sand South in the Kruger Private Reserves area in the Northeast of South Africa.

Wonderfully situated on the banks of the Sabi River, Mala Mala Main Camp is the largest and lowest cost of three related facilities in the area and is something of an institution. It has separate reception, restaurant and bar areas, leading out to a dining deck and pool area above the river. Guest accommodation is in ten suites and nine luxury rooms. Services levels are usually very good.

Activities are centred on vehicle safari and walking safari, with wildlife viewing in this Sabi Sand South area being very reliable year round. The lodge has traversing rights over the fabulous 105 square kilometre Mala Mala Reserve, which is second to none in this region.

The main potential downsides are the very high prices and the fact that the lodge is very large, old-fashioned and heavily built. There is the potential for adverse weather conditions Nov/Mar. Also, as with almost all the lodges in this area, different groups of guests are joined together on safari activities, unless you pre-book a private vehicle at significant additional cost. They also, in contrast to most lodges in this area, do not put trackers on the front of their safari vehicles here.

In Sabi Sand South the presence of overhead telephone cables and road signs does detract significantly from the sense of wilderness, but that is true of almost all of Kruger.
