Mala Mala Rattray’s Camp
Mala Mala is South Africa’s legendary and exclusive safari destination. Internationally acknowledged as “the top game viewing destination in the world”, it is set in beautiful surroundings on the banks of the Sand River.
Rattray’s on Mala Mala represents a classical “into Africa” safari experience in keeping with Mala Mala’s history of presenting an authentic view of wildlife in Africa to the discerning traveler.
The Rattray’s camp experience is exclusive, with each of the eight comfortable suites 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 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 will continue to reflect the ethos of the reserve over the past forty 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.
