Malala Lodge is situated on a 340 acre private nature reserve in the Hluhluwe area and is ideally positioned between the world-renowned Hluhluwe-Imfolosi Game Reserve, Mkhuze Game Reserve, Sodwana Bay and the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park. Malala is owned and managed by the Harvey family who, together with a very enthusiastic team of staff, are always on hand to provide the personal attention you deserve. The Lodge can accommodate a maximum of eighteen guests, and you will be assured of a tranquil African bush atmosphere and experience.
Malala Lodge has a variety of vegetation types, including lowland forest, woodland, grasslands and wetlands. You can enjoy a leisurely stroll through these diverse habitats on well-maintained and marked walking trails. The "Forest trail" begins behind each of the chalets but you are welcome to explore anywhere on our property. You may come across some of our game, which includes Zebra, Blue Wildebeest, Impala, Nyala, Reedbuck and Red and Grey Duiker. Other smaller wildlife that may cross your path are Large-spotted Genet, various mongooses, Vervet Monkeys and large Monitor Lizards. You may even spot the rare Suni Antelope or the unusual Four-toed Elephant Shrew.
In addition, Malala Lodge is at the centre of the birding hotspot of KwaZulu-Natal with over 500 species of bird having been recorded in the Elephant Coast area. The Malala Lodge birdlist currently has 237 recorded species. A checklist of the birds on the property is available on request
