Dinner, where one may enjoy venison specialties and haute bush cuisine is served in the grand old African wildlife safari manner, under the stars in a reed enclosed boma, a MalaMala tradition for over 60 years. Seated around a log fire, under the starry African sky, enjoying superb food and outstanding South African wines is yet another highlight of the MalaMala experience.

The spacious, beautifully decorated Buffalo lounge displaying bronzes, works of art and animal trophies leads onto an expansive wooden deck which provides an elevated view of animals watering in the Sand River.

The luxury and comfort of the camp, combined with the exhilarating game drives and guided walks in beautiful unspoilt wilderness dramatised by the close encounters with Africa’s game, big and small, is incomparable.

Wildlife Safari Game drives are conducted safely in a suitably equipped landrover.

The accommodation at MalaMala continues the African theme with spacious bungalows under thatch.
