A memorable family safari in South Africa

At Outposts Travel Africa we love arranging wonderful family holidays to Africa. MalaMala has a reputation as one of the finest family-friendly game reserves in Southern Africa. This is a result of 55 years’ experience and endeavour in perfecting the ultimate family safari.

MalaMala is a private game reserve situated in the wonderful Sabi Sands Game Reserve near Kruger National Park in South Africa. It is the largest and the oldest private big five game reserve in South Africa.

The different room configurations are perfectly suited to accommodate every shape and size of family at MalaMala. They have a combination of triple rooms, quads and inter-leading rooms at both MalaMala Camp and Sable Camp.

Whether you’re a small family unit or a large multi-generational party, we can design a tailor-made holiday for you in South Africa at MalaMala.

What really sets MalaMala apart is the incomparable Junior Ranger Programme. The programme is tailored to suit each family’s specific needs and the children have an interactive, personalised experience with their ranger, in the bush. MalaMala is not about crèches and games rooms.

There is no end to the activities on offer which include:

  • Identifying spoor and tracking animals
  • Learning basic bush survival skills
  • Bush cooking and baking
  • Fishing
  • Moulding spoor
  • Interactive bush walks

On arrival at MalaMala, each child will receive a branded MalaMala backpack filled with useful goodies and on departure he or she will receive a Junior Ranger Certificate – the highlight of most kids’ holiday in Africa.

As one of MalaMala’s experienced safari guests remarked: “So many lodges claim to offer these children’s programmes but they all pale in comparison to what MalaMala does.”
