Game Drives & Activities
at Mala Mala Sable Camp, Sabi Sand
Exciting Safari Activities: MalaMala Game Reserve has been in existence since 1927, this massive thriving tract of land produces the most exciting wildlife experience this side of the equator. MalaMala Game Reserve is the largest private Big Five game reserve in South Africa. Comprising 13 300 ha, MalaMala shares a 19 km (12 mile) unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park and lies sandwiched between the National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve.
On arrival at the camps within the MalaMala Game Reserve, you will be introduced to your ranger and tracker team who will be your hosts, guides and educators during your stay with us. Whilst an itinerary will be suggested (as detailed below) to take advantage of the more comfortable temperature ranges and the enhanced game viewing opportunities, it is also important to have time to relax and enjoy the camp surroundings and commune with the environment.
Twice daily Big Five game-drives
Game drives are conducted in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles in the 40,000 acre MalaMala Game Reserve with a maximum of 6 guests per vehicle. The rangers are in constant radio communication with one another to keep each other informed about the location of the game. Headsets are used for this purpose so as not to disturb the sounds of the African bush. The 4-wheel drive safari vehicles enable the rangers to leave the road and provide guests with close up game viewing and fantastic photographic opportunities. Night drives, with the aid of powerful spotlights, bring the bush to life at night.
Interpretive bush walks
The more energetic safari guests can explore the MalaMala Reserve on interpretive bush walks led by experienced rangers.
