Malala Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2010

Malala Lodge is just a wonderful place, the buildings and surroundings are second to none, ive been on a few safari's at different lodges in Africa and i can definatly say Malala comes top. Furthermore the staff are so helpful you'd think that they were your good friends tou'd known for years. Organising trips in advance or at the last minute as you requested giveing great impartial advice on what to do and being helpful in every way imaginable.

i hope to be at Malala again sometime in the future and would srongly reccomend this lodge to anyone, i will try and add some pictures once i've fully unpacked

wishing Paul, Jane, Pete and Lesely all the best for the future at Malala lodge

P.S. this place is awesome value for money compared to the 4 other lodges i have stayed at in Afirca

Your Happy Patron
