The Shangaan word ‘Makalali’ is roughly translated to ‘place of rest’. But a stay within its borders may make visitors wonder if it applies to its guests or the considerable wildlife population who call the reserve home.
While there are many top-notch accommodations atop Makalali’s soil, the reserve also shelters the Big 5, cheetah, giraffe, zebra, antelope and even crocodile. Safari-goers can encounter these animals on game drives, bush walks and even sight them from their accommodation, or just from the many natural vantage points that litter Makalali’s landscape.
