Malala lodge/bush walks and game drives


Does any one of you have experience with Malala Lodge in Hluhluwe? If so, were the bush walks and game drives good?

Any other tips for a lodge in the Hluhluwe park who also offer bush walks and game drives?

Thanks a lot for your input

Phinda used to offer bush walks but I think they may have discontinued this (contact them and find out), it is a fabulous reserve. Hluhluwe/mfolozi Reserve which is the national reserve and not a private reserve, offers walking trails, nature-reserve.co.za/hluhluwe-imfolozi-wildl…

I stayed at Malala Lodge for 3 nights during the World Cup. I took a chance booking there because I couldn't find much info about them when researching for my trip (there were 3 of us altogether). They offer a 'safari special' which includes breakfast, dinner, and game drives into the Hluhluwe Game Reserve. I highly recommend it. Pete, who owns Malala Lodge with his son and their wives, is the guide for the safari and you couldn't ask for a better experience. The food was also excellent. Malala Lodge is a nice alternative to the more touristy Hilltop Camp which was the other place I had considered booking ahead of my trip. After eating lunch at Hilltop Camp (I wanted to check it out), I thought it was nice, but I'm so happy I went with Malala.
