Mala Mala Main Camp is South Africa's legendary and exclusive destination. Internationally acknowledged as "the top wildlife viewing destination in the world", Main Camp is set in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Sand River.

The ochre coloured buildings of Main Camp are clustered amid shady trees and manicured lawns overlooking the Sand River. The individually decorated, spacious and comfortable rooms under traditional thatching, enjoy spectacular views.

The luxury and comfort of Main Camp, combined with the exhilarating bush drives and guided walks in beautiful unspoilt wilderness dramatised by the close encounters with Africa's wildlife, big and small, is incomparable. This is the Mala Mala Game Reserve at it's best.

Despite the comfort offered, Main Camp retains an authentic atmosphere.

Rooms & Suites:

The 18 luxury rooms consist of twin or double rooms, suites, family rooms, a disabled suite and one single room.

Each of the air-conditioned rooms enjoys a spectacular view of the surrounding bush and are equipped with "His" and "Hers" en-suite bathrooms, insect proof screens and top quality large twin beds. Individually decorated, they feature sets of animal or bird prints, complementing the attention to detail for which MalaMala Main Camp is world famous.

Food & Wine:

Bush cuisine is served in the grand old African manner, under the stars in a reed enclosed boma, a MalaMala tradition for over 60 years. Enjoying superb food and outstanding South African wines is yet another highlight of the Mala Mala Main Camp experience.

Activities:

Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhinoceros - the most sought after and dangerous of the world's big game. In previous centuries it was these five species which gripped the imagination of hunters and sportsmen, drawing them to Africa to experience the blood pounding thrill of hunting and shooting "The Big Five". It is in reserves like Mala Mala where this hunting and shooting still takes place, only the hunting is done by experienced rangers and Shangaan trackers, and the shooting is done with cameras. But it does not mean that the thrill and exhilaration of encountering these animals in an open Land Rover is any less gripping.

Folk lore and legend are rich with regards to the Big Five. Encompassing beliefs such as the following: " The Great One put the animals here for us to use wisely and respect, even as we hunted them, but he knew that without fear we might lose our respect for these creatures. So he put the five here to help us remember. The lion and leopard taught us fear of the night, that only the daytime was ours. The buffalo, the elephant and the rhino taught us to fear their strength, that we might respect the strength of nature."
