The 'New' Sable Camp
Share this post
of MalaMala is progressing well, with the completion of phase 1, and we’re delighted to share the first “official” images of the new-look Sable Camp with you.
We’re thrilled with the outcome, and we believe we’ve achieved a delicate balance of old and new, classic and contemporary. Most importantly, we’ve succeeded in preserving the soul and heritage of the camp, while at the same time introducing a fresher and sharper feel.
MalaMala has always had a uniquely African character and, as the images below demonstrate, we’ve stayed true to our roots.
The abundance of water and vegetation is matched in behavioural opportunities. Herbivores disperse gratefully as resources reach their peak and predators travel further to hunt them. It may take time to track and find these incredible beasts but using the interim wisely can be most advantageous. Spend some time watching dragonflies display over a waterhole and you will not need to watch science fiction. Engulf yourself in the world of dung beetles or the intelligence of termite alates forming a new colony. It is the chance to ask questions, to examine in greater detail the inner workings of our natural environment. A chance that many have never had and others will never have again. ‘’Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better”, said Albert Einstein. He had unlocked the magic that lies in front of us as we bundle onto our Land Rovers drive after drive.

We are very proud of the fact that in the five months since the re-imagination started, we have not had a single guest complaint, only compliments. That said, there is no room for complacency and we are doing everything in our power to ensure that our guest experience is not compromised in any way.
