Mala Mala Sable Camp

Lodge style Home of the sables

Intimate lodge for safari enthusiasts

MalaMala Sable Camp symbolises well-designed luxury in an intimate and private setting for the ultimate safari experience. The Camp is perfect for visitors who desire tranquillity and exclusivity. The five luxury suites of Rattray's on MalaMala accommodate a maximum of fourteen guests. All suites overlook the banks of the Sand River from an elevated position. Staying at this lodge will help you to truly get in touch with pure African nature surrounding Rattray's at MalaMala. Go out and discover it to the fullest on a game drive guided by highly experienced ranger who will make sure that you don’t miss anything.

Each of the five Mala Mala Sable Camp suites are uniquely decorated with a personal touch and provides a top level of comfort, with ‘his’ and ‘hers’ bathrooms, temperature control, mini bar and bathroom amenities. Sleep under traditional thatching to experience true Africa and overlook the beautiful surroundings from the private veranda. After a perfect day in the bush, relax and enjoy your dinner in the traditional African boma under the stars or on the wooden deck with panoramic views on the beautiful surroundings and animal life on the Sand riverbanks. Next to the 5 suites, there is also the Lions Den Suite, which accommodates 4 guests in two en-suite bedrooms separated by a large living room with the same luxurious and comfortable interior as the other suites. This makes Sable Camp perfect for families, groups and two couples. Rattray's Camp may also be exclusively booked by groups between ten to eighteen guests.

Activities at Mala Mala Sable Camp

Experience the thrill and excitement of the ultimate African activity to spot the famous Big Five: a game drive safari. Sabi Sands Game Reserve provides the most excellent game viewing experience with over 200 different species of wild mammal and the biggest concentration of free roaming elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, buffalo and cheetah. Therefore, Sabi Sands Game Reserve is the ultimate destination for game viewing with safari experiences that are unmatched. Enjoy this wildlife domain to the fullest on a game drive safari from the Sable Camp in an open 4-wheel drive vehicle with a maximum of 6 guests. Therefore, you will have an uninterrupted view on all animals spotted by the highly trained and experienced ranger who will guide your safari. One of the advantages of a safari in a private game reserve is the possibility to go off road, which is strictly prohibited in the National Parks and other reserves in Africa. The experienced ranger will be able to drive into the bush to let the guests observe each animal to the fullest. This is also possible during an adventurous night-drive under the stars with a powerful spotlight to see even the tiniest animal! Another activity that is part of the ultimate African experience is going on a bush walk. Walk through the bush with your ranger and get in touch with the fascinating African nature!

Tripadvisor comments Mala Mala Sable Camp

I came to Mala Mala with my wife and 11 years daughter. The title above means everything Mala Mala really is about. The crew is just outstanding, from the reservations office to the waitresses, not forgetting all the rangers. What to say more ? Excellent food, confort, and obviously the world wide known game drives. We stayed for three days, which corresponds to six game drives, when we saw all the big five more than once, including the babies, and other lovely animals as well, like zebras, giraffes, warthogs, great sort of antilope, and even a porcupine. Special mention to the funny and curious baby leopard that seemed to like us for some reason, and the whole pride of lions, including the dominant male. My family was clearly sad to leave, and I definetely wish to return another time.

Having done previous photo safaris, we thought we had seen luxury in Africa, but this topped all the rest and as for the wildlife -- it was in the top 2 of the best game viewing experience ever, only rivaled by Botswana. And the 2 cannot fairly be compared. Our every need was seen to and we chose to stay out all day most days to see more wildlife. The chef and his staff packed amazing breakfast and lunch baskets and we had coffee at sunrise w/some incredible views. Can't say enough great things about the entire staff. Every single member gives 110% to the guests. Sadly, We barely had time to use our private plunge pool. THe villas are huge and so luxurious. Separate dressing rooms/baths for myself and my hubby. amazing!!!!!
