It is here, strategically sandwiched between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin, that the MalaMala Game Reserve is situated. The unfenced borders between MalaMala Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park on one side, and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin on the other allows animals to migrate unhindered to the perennial Sand River which flows north to south through MalaMala for 20 kilometres (13 miles). This well preserved wilderness is a “honey-pot” to the most sought-after wildlife species, as well as a host of smaller creatures. MalaMala is part of a conservation gene pool that covers 5.5 million acres of land in the heart of the South African Lowveld.
The reserve supports a variety of habitat types; dense riverine forest, acacia-combretum bushveld, open grassland and rocky outcrops, each sustaining different plant and animal species. Drives are varied and full, with a different outlook around each corner.
