Dining out under the African stars on the beautiful wooden viewing deck of Sable Camp; listening to the nocturnal animals waking up in the distance is the most incredible way to spend an evening.
Joanne Swinton's detailed knowledge of South Africa has been invaluable and her enthusiasm to respond to our needs is greatly appreciated.

Situated at the southern end of the MalaMala Camp in a prime elevated position overlooking the Sand River and surrounding bush, the Sable Camp is an ideal retreat for the more reclusive traveller who prefers privacy and exclusivity. The Sable Camp accommodates 14 guests in 5 luxury suites and the Lions Den - a 2 bedroomed, spacious luxury suite with magnificent views. The fully air-conditioned, beautifully appointed Sable Camp has a truly colonial feel enhanced with modern comforts. A library with satellite television and internet connectivity give one the option to stay in touch with the world whilst the intimate safari bar, swimming pool and large wooden deck surrounding the camp provide the platform from which to admire the unimpeded views that make the Sable Camp experience so rich and interactive. A dedicated team of staff are on hand to make sure that every need of our discerning guests is taken care of, whilst our highly qualified rangers and trackers continue to present close contact viewing in the diverse wilderness that is MalaMala Game Reserve.
