About MalaMala

The soul of MalaMala's Main Camp is evident:

  • In the sepia photographs in the safari bar, reflecting the history of the area;
  • In the massive Jackalberry tree, a silent witness in the boma from the beginning;
  • In the faces of the staff, some who have worked for the family for over 30 years;
  • In the floodplain beyond the camp which has witnessed the changes year on year;
  • In the granite outcrops of Sithlawayise and Campbell Koppies which stand guard over this pristine wilderness area;
  • In the Sand River which journeys through this sanctuary supporting the healthy eco system,
  • In the generations of wild animals which have found solace in their home territories on MalaMala

Every aspect of the Main Camp is designed to appreciate and enjoy the view of the surrounding wilds. Pathways wind their way along the perimeter of the camp to reveal individual ochre colored units tucked into the greenery which flanks the Sand River. Massive trees and rolling green lawns are filled with birdsong, with the occasional antelope or elephant which seeks the succulence of greenery.

The camp is unfenced - an oasis in the middle of the bushveld.
