Fodor's Expert Review MalaMala Private Game Reserve
This legendary game reserve (designated as such in 1929), is tops in its field. The first and only community-owned game reserve in Sabi Sand, it continues to be managed by the legendary Rattray family in partnership with the N’wandlamharhi Community. Expect incomparable personal service, superb food, and discreetly elegant, comfortable accommodations where you'll rub shoulders with aristocrats, celebrities, and returning visitors alike. It retains the genuine bushveld feel of bygone days, and its outstanding hospitality and the game-viewing experience keep guests coming back. MalaMala constitutes the largest privately owned Big Five game area in South Africa and includes an unfenced 30-km (19-mi) boundary with Kruger National Park, across which game crosses continuously. MalaMala's animal-viewing statistics are almost unbelievable: the Big Five are spotted almost every day.
