Our photographic safaris include three different locations – Tshukudu Game Lodge in Hoedspruit, The Kruger National Park and MalaMala Game Reserve.
My reason for choosing MalaMala is that I firmly believe it is one of the very best places to photograph leopards and lions, so we use it as the grand finale on our photo safaris.
This is my second year running trips that include a visit to MalaMala, and we have had great success on every trip – a total of 7 trips thusfar, plus another planned for later in the year.
For photography, the flexibility that MalaMala offers is second-to-none, and the reserve is simply beautiful with the river frontage.The staff are fantastic, the camps are too, and the rangers are top notch.
I have had the privilege of being looked after by Gary and Bens on my trips this year, and they are both excellent, patient, full of knowledge and have excellent driving skills.
I am really looking forward to my next stay at MalaMala.
Stu took this awesome footage of the Predators of MalaMala. Included in this clip are the Eyrefield cubs, as well as the lioness carrying her cubs that we mentioned in a previous Cyberdiary. Enjoy!
