Sabi Sands Game Reserve

“Luxury in the Bush”

If you want old time luxury this is the place to stay. The accommodations exceeded our expectations. Everyone has their own individual “cabin”. It is luxurious beyond belief. There are his and her bathrooms as well as your own plunge pool. The game drives are terrific. The staff is always available and extremely friendly. Highly recommend. You will not be disappointed.

“On a scale of 1 to 10 this place is a 20”

Rattrays is a private game reserve at Mala Mala – next to Kruger national park. It was booked for us by the African Adventure Co. in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. We stayed 3 days and had an awesome time. Our safari guide, Bruce Missing, was excellent and all about seeing the wildlife. The staff and service were awesome. Food was excellent. Would love to have had one more day to enjoy the accommodations. Our cottage was like a scene from Out of Africa. Outside of our daily drives, we really enjoyed the afternoon breaks and the great dining experience – with the staff singing to us each evening. And the new assistant barman, Zweli, did a great job. Indeed a special place.

“Wow! Just wow!”

This was our fifth and final safari on our “once in a lifetime” trip to Africa. The accommodations were luxurious beyond our wildest imagination. We could not believe the space we had. After almost a month of traveling, it was nice to have separate bathrooms! The game drives were terrific with leopards being a highlight for us. The managers were wonderful and our ranger was amazingly informed, competent, and accommodating.

“A M A Z I N G!”

My husband and I just returned from a three week trip to Africa, and our stay at Mala Mala Rattray’s was the highlight! The most gorgeous camp with accommodations that are truly extraordinary. At first, I didn’t think that this property could be as nice or nicer as an And Beyond property but it was in spades!
The guides were the very best – the service was exemplary and they did everything to make our stay one we will never forget. This is a GEM – don’t miss it!
