My sister, daughter and I spent 2 nights at Malala Lodge. Driving up from Durban it was very easy to find the lodge and Jane was happy to let us check in early which was kind of her. The lodge is in a lovely location, very quiet surroundings and has a real 'out in the bush' feel to it. It... More

Firstly, a huge thank you for the wonderful time we had at Malala. We found the lodge to be very well looked after, spotlessly clean and the service we received from each of you was excellent. The pool was a life-saver in the midday heat! We definitely would love to return next time we are in the area. We thoroughly... More

This was the last stay of our 3-week honeymoon and one of our favourites. We had a very warm welcome on arrival and enjoyed the hospitality of Jane, Pete and Paul a lot. The environment of the lodge is amazing, went for a morning walk around the area and saw a zebra and wildebeest in the garden. Great guidance by... More

Malala Lodge is in a beautiful tranquil setting in the Bushlands near Hluhluwe, it is approached by a twisty short untarred track where there is an abundance of birdlife and wildlife. On arrival of the lodge you are greeted by the friendly owners Jane , Pete and Paul who make you extremely welcome. They are always willing to offer advise... More

Out of the three lodges we stayed at during our visit to South Africa, this was the most relaxed and had, by far, the best food! Jane, Pete and their various animals were extremely welcoming. We were fortunate enough to be the only visitors there, which made it a very tranquil location. The lodges are well separated, so I do... More

This is our second stay at the peaceful, tranquil private Malala Lodge. The meals are good and the accommodation clean, comfortable and everything we needed is provided, one cannot ask for more. We'll be back.

A safe haven for animals and guests, with fantastic facilities, well located for sight seeing (Cheetah park, St Lucia, Umfolozi Game Park and any more attractions. The staff are fantastic, personable and very private/friendly. Not to mention the absolutely delicious 3 course meals and hearty breakfast. This place was the highlight of our trip (and we stayed at some pretty... More

We have just returned from a 3 night stay here. They couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and accommodate our needs - and there were many with two young children. Using them to tour the Hluhluwe park was the best decision that we could have made. If we go back to the area we wouldn't think twice... More

Jane, Paul and Pete made this a stay to remember. It scores top marks for everything. The food was absolutely delicious, the rooms were clean and had everything we could have needed and the safari was magical. We'll certainly be returning to Malala Lodge and have already recommended it to friends.

We have stayed at Malala twice now and each time it has been an awesome time. A place where you can relax prior to visiting the game parks. The hospitality is GREAT, the rooms are rustic and oh so clean. The friendships of Peter, Jane and Paul just put the finishing touches to a suburb venue to visit and linger... More
