Located next to the Kruger National Park in the legendary Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, Mala Mala Sable Camp offers a genuinely exclusive and intimate safari experience. Sleeping a maximum of 14 guests, this colonial-style camp is set in a prime elevated position overlooking the Sand River and delivers some of the best Big 5 game viewing on the continent.

Go on day and night game drives in open-sided vehicles led by a ranger and tracker. Off-road driving allows your ranger to track and get close to animals for unbeatable photographic opportunities and the bird watching is excellent - you can also discover the smaller details of this ecosystem during guided walking safaris with the possibility of big game encounters along the way.
