World Class Luxury and Top Quality Game Viewing..
Mala Mala Private Reserve, Sabi Sands
Rattray's on MalaMala offers a glimpse of an era long past, when distant travellers to Africa married the magic of the wild with elegance and refinement. Rattray's on MalaMala is a culmination of over 50 years of experience within the Rattray Family. Each suite or khaya (the Zulu for "home") functions as an inclusive home, resplendent with hand-selected furnishings, lavish his-and-hers bathrooms, a secluded outdoor shower and a private heated plunge pool.
The Rattray's camp experience is exclusive, with each of the eight comfortable suites (all with king sized beds only) occupying its own elevated site overlooking the Sand River. Filtered plunge pools complete each of the secluded verandahs and an outdoor dining area provides the ideal vantage point from which to enjoy bush cuisine in complete privacy.
Each guest has the choice of remaining connected to the outside world from the sanctuary of their room via continuous internet connectivity and satellite television.
Facilities within the main, elegant building incorporate a viewing deck, an air-conditioned library providing a refuge for the literary devotee, an attractive safari bar showcasing the history of the area and an adjoining wine cellar stocked with a wide range of South Africa's best wines.
Breakfast and lunch are served in the air-conditioned dining room or on the adjoining deck whilst the traditional reed boma under a magnificent jackalberry tree is the ultimate outdoor evening venue.
The focus of the Rattray's safaris continues to reflect the ethos of the reserve over the past fifty years - game viewing.
Sound conservation management has ensured an environmental sanctuary for an impressive density and diversity of wildlife. Striving for a maximum of 4 guests per safari vehicle this wildlife wonderland that is MalaMala unfolds.
Sightings of the Big Five and the interactions of the various species along the food chain from ants to elephants provides visitors with a glimpse of Africa as it has always been - untouched by the modern human hand.
