Fauna and Flora
Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Buffalo and Rhinoceros - the
most sought after and dangerous of the world's big game. In previous
centuries it was these five species which gripped the imagination of
hunters and sportsmen, drawing them to Africa to experience the blood
pounding thrill of hunting and shooting "The Big Five". It
is in reserves like Mala Mala where this hunting and shooting still takes
place, only the hunting is done by experienced rangers and Shangaan trackers,
and the shooting is done with cameras. But it does not mean that the
thrill and exhilaration of encountering these animals in an open Land
Rover is any less gripping.
MalaMala Main Camp is the ideal family destination. Welcoming children
of all ages, youngsters are able to participate in a holistic programme
tailored to suit their needs.
With this program we intend to entertain children,
but at the same time to educate them about the bush and the wildlife
we share our lives with. Children will always be under the supervision
of a responsible ranger while on the program, whether within the confines
of the camp, or out in the bush.
