Is MalaMala Main Camp really worth the price?

Jump to last reply

Lots of balls still up in the air for safari 2013 but two that consistantly keep landing are Mashatu tented and MalaMala Main.

But sheesh that $685 ppn price tag for MalaMala really stings! Yet the animal densities I've been hearing about, especially with cats, coupled with a low number of pax per vehicle brings on that old "trip of a lifetime" excuse even for a second safari.

The attraction to MalaMala is not accommodation as my preference is something a bit more rustic such as Mashatu but the cats seem to keep calling my name. Just wish they weren't such damn expensive cats!

So is MalaMala really worth the price? Or can I realistically look elsewhere for the same experience?

Has anyone been to MalaMala and somewhere else that might pair well with Mashatu that they preferred over MalaMala?

It's decision time and I need heeeeelp. O-)
