Mala Mala Main Camp is a luxurious lodge steeped in history and tradition as well as nature and the surrounding wilderness. The lodge boasts luxurious accommodation, large viewing decks and uniquely decorated buildings and rooms. The soul of the Main Camp is evident in its décor – genuine original bronzes, animal trophies and historic sepia photos in the safari bar are all offset by massive trees with looming canopies and rolling lawns, a rushing river and aimlessly wandering wildlife.

Every aspect of the Main camp is designed for visitors to appreciate and enjoy the view of the surrounding wilds. The camp is unfenced and pathways wind their way along the perimeter to reveal individual ochre colour units tucked into the greenery. There is a large wooden viewing deck which stands in the shade of a massive Jackalberry Tree in the boma, which has stood proudly since the lodge’s beginning and offers an ideal vantage point from which to watch the wildlife down at the River’s edge. The Main Lodge has a lounge, air-conditioned dining room, historic bar and library with satellite television, DVD player and wireless internet connectivity. There is a small fitness room with a stationary bicycle, treadmill, multi-gym machine, rowing machine, sit-up benches, pull-up bar, free weights and a steam room as well as a fully stocked wine cellar, infinity swimming pool with views across the river and a curio shop selling quality clothing, jewellery and artefacts. But perhaps one of the greatest testaments to the lodge is in its staff – some of whom have worked at Mala Mala and with the Rattray family for over 30 years.

Mala Mala Main Camp comprises 19 units consisting of 8 Luxury Suites, 10 Luxury Rooms and 1 Single Room, clustered among shady trees and manicured lawns. Children of all ages are welcome and some units can be re-arranged to accommodate an additional adult or 2 children, on request. Children under 4 years of age are not permitted in the boma for dinner or on game drives (unless a game drive vehicle has been booked for sole use). A babysitting facility is available on request and for a nominal fee. One suite has been fully equipped to cater for disabled persons.

Mala Mala is an award winning safari destination – strategically located between the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and the Kruger National Park – the reserve offers some of the best game viewing terrain in South Africa. Home to various habitats the reserve boasts a great diversity of animals including Africa’s ‘Big 5’ – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant as well as a multitude of other bird, mammal and fish species, plants and trees.

Game drives are conducted twice daily by experienced and knowledgeable rangers, in open 4x4 game drive vehicles. The number of passengers on each vehicle is limited to 6 guests to ensure comfort and an optimal game viewing experience. Bush walks are available allowing guests to enjoy a different game viewing experience.

Mala Mala Private Game Reserve is 16 000 hectares in size – an unfenced gem of densely populated lowveld - family owned and managed by the Rattray Family since 1964 the Camp offers visitors an exclusive bush destination on the banks of the impressive Sand River - which flows through this sanctuary for 23km supporting its healthy eco-system. The park has no shared traversing rights so offers exclusive game viewing areas and further boasts a 19km open boundary with the Kruger National Park and the Sand River. All three of the Camps at Mala Mala are situated on the western side of the river leaving the game rich eastern side of the reserve as a true wilderness area.

Mala Mala Main Camp welcomes families and offers guests a luxurious Big 5 Safari experience in a private game reserve bordering the Kruger National Park. As with all the Mala Mala Camps - the lodge is Discreet, Classic and Elegant.
