Great spot for hiking, Malolotja is known for its scienery, dont expect to see lots of animals. Its more for the person who wants to hike and do some canopy tree trips.

They have good equipment, optimised procedure and professional guides which make us feel safe. Make sure don't wear slippers and take care of your camera or mobile. You'll never get it back if you drop it.
