Flanking the Sand River, MalaMala Main Camp has enjoyed its prime location in the MalaMala Game Reserve since the 1930s. The camp is unfenced for a real bushveld experience and uninterrupted vistas of massive trees and rolling green lawns where wandering antelope and elephant seek solace.

There are 19 homely air conditioned rooms, including eight suites, an infinity pool and main lodge area with library, bar and dining area. Dinners are a traditional affair around a blazing fire in the reed-enclosed boma under the night sky above.

When you’re not out on exhilarating game drives or bush walks, you can watch wildlife from the comfort of the shade of a Jackalberry tree on the large wooden safari deck. For keen photographers, a specially equipped vehicle with mounts and dedicated photographic ranger can be arranged.
