MalaMala Game Reserve is the benchmark for the luxury safari industry in Southern Africa and MalaMala Camp a haven of luxury, comfort, superb service and unrivalled views of the Sand River and surrounding bushveld. MalaMala Game Reserve was the first privately owned and commercially operated game reserve in South Africa and served as model for all other private game reserves. As one of the largest private Big Five reserves in South Africa it is world-renowned for the finest game viewing. MalaMala shares an unfenced boundary with the world-famous Kruger National Park (KNP) and is strategically located between the KNP and the Sabi Sand Reserve with 20 kms (13 miles) of Sand River frontage. This perennial river is the focus of MalaMala’s wildlife experience because it draws many animals all year round.
