Stayed with family and had a lovely time. Lesley, Paul and Peter were friendly without being intrusive, the food was home style and plentiful and we had a lovely relaxed time. Would recommend. Easy access to surrounding parks and we had a lovely game drive with Peter. They also arranged a boat trip and helped in any way possible.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with family

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
