DAY 1 :


This safari starts at Skukuza Airport, where you will be met by Stew Nolan and transferred to MalaMala - our home for the next 5 nights. MalaMala is world renowned for some of the finest game viewing there is on offer. With all the camps situated on the western side of the Sand River, the entire eastern side of the river is uninhabited by humans and allows for spectacular game viewing free of any powerlines, tar roads etc. 

DAY 2 - 5 :


Guided by experienced MalaMala ranger and accompanied by your photographic guide. We will have a private vehicle for our group, and twice daily game drives can be structured around our groups photographic desires. Of particular interest are the leopards of MalaMala, - with one of the worlds densest populations in the area, anything between 20 and 25 individuals are viewed every month. 

DAY 6 :


Unfortunately today brings the last morning drive at MalaMala - one last session in the bush for now! After breakfast, we'll take a drive to Skukuza Airport for onward travel.
