MalaMala Game Reserve offers a range of accommodation across three camps
to appeal to every type of traveller. Families are welcome at MalaMala
Main Camp, where “Junior Rangers” are treated to an educational
yet entertaining bush experience.
Sable Camp is the exclusive version of the Main Camp and the perfect choice
for the traveller who seeks a smaller, more tranquil environment.
Rattray’s on MalaMala is the crème de la crème of
the luxury safari industry. The newest addition to the MalaMala portfolio,
this elegant reflection of a colonial era embodied in the timeless “Out
of Africa” epic promises the ultimate exclusive safari in style,
privacy and sublime comfort.
Regardless of how big a game reserve is and how many animals inhabit
its plains, you may still not see the ‘Elephants for the trees”
unless you are accompanied by experienced game rangers.
The MalaMala Game Reserve rangers are employed for their
knowledge of the African bush and their ability to communicate with people
from all over the world.
These highly qualified individuals are fascinating company and are the
ideal ambassadors through which to experience the animals and the seemingly
invisible language of the bush.
Apart from conducting informative game drives, the ranger also acts as
host within the camp, discreetly reading the needs of his guests whilst
at the same time sharing his stories, knowledge and passion of the bush
with safari enthusiasts.
A day at MalaMala Game Reserve, no matter your choice of camp, combines
exhilarating game viewing opportunities with a chance to relax
and refresh the soul. The phenomenal wildlife, around which your
experience revolves, is the priority at MalaMala, whilst the comfortable
camps, wholesome cuisine and impeccable, friendly service complement this
focus and we encourage our guests to immerse themselves in the experience.
For many this will be a unique lifetime experience which will be cherished
On arrival at the camps within the MalaMala Game Reserve, you will be
introduced to your ranger team who will be your hosts, guides and educators
during your stay with us.
Whilst an itinerary will be suggested 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.
Game drives are conducted in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles in the
40,000 acre MalaMala Game Reserve. 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.
The suggested itineraries are not set in stone so please discuss your
requirements on your arrival with your ranger who will do his best to
be as accommodating as possible within the confines of the camp routine
and with consideration for your safari companions – other MalaMala
guests also being hosted by your ranger team. A later departure from the
camp to meet up with your safari team is possible if you prefer a relaxing
morning whilst your new found safari friends want to beat the sun and
get up earlier.
The rangers, camp management staff will try to accommodate the various
requests from all the guests in camp but this may not always be possible
The suggested itineraries differ between the hot summer months and the
warm winter days which melt into cold evenings.
The transitional short periods of Autumn and spring will also see an
adjustment to the suggested itineraries which will be determined by the
temperatures experienced at the time.
