Mala Mala Review
by Jack Eads
Saw all the big five on the first day and every day thereafter. This safari was my trip life experience, well beyond a vacation. Being able to be within reach of all the big five will always be remembered.
Safari Operator Performance
Extensive knowledge of both the USA guide and African guide. They anticipated our every need.
Mala Mala Camp, situated in the Sabi Sands private game reserve.
All the meals were plentiful, well prepared, had a mix of native and traditional fare and an excellent variety.
We had one breakfast in the bush. How perfectly everything went.
All the animals had their own distinctive aura. The majestic pose of the leopard was hard to surpass.
Awakened @ 5:30 AM, Coffee, fruit, pastry.
6AM – 9:30-10 AM morning Drive
10-11 AM – Full Breakfast made to order
11AM-1:30 PM free time optional wildlife walk
2-3 PM Lunch
3-7/8 PM Second Drive
8PM on Cocktails and Dinner in a traditional BOMA
The Free wildlife photography e-book was excellent. Most important and beneficial is to know your camera and be completely comfortable using it prior to leaving home. Certainly well before you reach Africa.
