Spend 3 nights at MalaMala Game Reserve followed by 3 nights at Jabulani. MalaMala Game Reserve is the safari industry’s blueprint to the luxury photographic safari. This enormous tract of land offers unparalleled wildlife viewing. MalaMala is the only game reserve in this region where the benefits of tourism directly support adjacent communities. Jabulani is located within a private reserve in the Limpopo Province which enjoys panoramic views of the nearby Drakensberg mountain range, and is only 40 km from the Kruger National Park. It is also central to some of the most magnificent scenic areas of both the Mpumalanga and Limpopo Provinces.
MalaMala Camp is a haven of understated luxury combining warm comfort and superb service with unrivalled views of the Sand River and surrounding bushveld. It is truly a place of legends where rare photographs, old maps and extraordinary mementos rub shoulders with the works of renowned contemporary wildlife artists. The camp is an unfenced oasis in the middle of the bush. Dinner is another highlight of the MalaMala experience and is served around a log-fire in the grand old African manner, under star-punched skies and in a reed boma – a MalaMala tradition for over 60 years. The delectable dinner fare features a smorgasbord of bush cuisine, including venison specialties and outstanding South African wines.
With a Relais & Châteaux accreditation, this intimate owner-run lodge with just six suites and the Zindoga villa, offers first-class accommodation, superb cuisine, facilities and highly-personalised service. Jabulani represents the epitome of style, luxury, gastronomic excellence and warm hospitality, yet at the heart of this five-star premium experience lies a cause far greater than its tangible elements. Jabulani is dedicated to the care and sustainability of a unique herd of rescued elephants who were saved from culling in Zimbabwe in 2002. Guests can discover more about the herd’s remarkable journey together with their passionate carers, including the story of orphaned elephant Jabulani who was accepted into the herd, all the while knowing that by staying at Jabulani, they contribute to the herd’s wellbeing and safety.
