It’s a dry season, dust is everywhere, and wildlife gathers in bodies of water at the Mala Mala Game Reserve. May is a great time to visit this destination due to desirable weather that’s not too hot and not too cold. Rainfall is infrequent, and the sun shines just right during this season. Mala Mala Game Reserve is the largest and oldest Big Five preserve in South Africa. The area covers 130 km² where tons of animals live such as hyena, Cheetah, wildebeest, hippopotamus pods, zebra, giraffe, as well as Cape wild dog. Mala Mala Game Reserve is also known as the pioneer of luxury photographic safari where the magnificent Ngorongoro Crater and Sand River lie. The world-renowned leopard featured by the National Geographic, Tijolo, lived at the Mala Mala Game Reserve. Another reason why the park is a favorite is due to its closeness to the world-class Kruger National Park. With a dry climate in May, you can do many activities in the park such as walking safaris, games, and night safaris.
