An absolute pleasure to have stayed at Mala Lodge. Just what was needed . If you are looking for a peaceful getaway then I would highly recommend it ! It has the right in the middle of the bush feel but yet it is close to all amenities .

Thanks Philip and Yo. You certainly had a great game drive, which is going to be difficult to beat! Thanks for mentioning the location - St Lucia and Hluhluwe-Imfolozi are certainly the jewels of the area, and we are located roughly halfway between the two.
As always, a pleasure to host you, and we look forward to visit #5.
Kind Regards
Paul

The owners of this lodge are so very kind and helpfull! Nothing is too much; they offered us an extra lodge, so we had more space for our grown-up kids. The food was in one word delicious and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Also we had a great time with dad, who guided us for a day.

Very reluctant to give a review - don't want an invasion to this precious spot!! Beautiful surroundings, walk among the animals. Food is wonderful and the Harveys are the most congenial hosts! The rooms are comfortable and the atmosphere relaxing. Looking forward to our next visit.

Thanks for your review, Janice.
As always, a pleasure to host you both and thanks for highlighting aspects which we also believe are important: beautiful surroundings, walking in the bush with the animals and the tranquil and relaxing atmosphere.
Looking forward to your next visit.
Kind Regards
Paul

Spent 5 nights, on a dinner bed and breakfast basis, 3 nights were on the special package that includes a boat cruise on the St Lucia River and a Game Drive In Hluhluwe National Park. Excellent value and a great experience. Food and service and the company of Pete, Paul and Lesley was top class. Malala is centrally situated so you can visit each area on a different day, so 5 nights was perfect. Great birding and Nyala and Red Duiker viewing on the farm property and you can walk around freely. We will return!! Thanks all for a fantastic stay

Dear Chris and Liz,
Thanks for your lovely review - we really appreciate it. Thanks also for mentioning our central location. You can certainly reach most of the main attractions in the area quite easily from Malala: Hluhluwe-Imfolozi to the north-west, St Lucia / Isimangaliso to the south and east and Mkhuze game reserve to the north.
Hope to see you all again soon.
Kind Regards
Paul
