Rattray's on Mala Mala is the most exclusive of the three Mala Mala camps in the reserve. This is a very private luxury camp that offers an intimate safari experience and very high standards of accommodation. However, the Sabi Sands is an area that is home to some of Africa’s most luxurious lodges, some of which are smarter and may offer a more polished experience.
ACCESS & LOCATION:
Mala Mala is a private reserve located on the border of South Africa’s Sabi Sands and Kruger National Park. The game-viewing here is phenomenally good – we believe this area is one of the very best in Africa.
ACCOMMODATION & FACILITIES:
Its eight extremely comfortable suites overlook the Sand River. They are beautifully furnished in an attractive colonial style and each has its own private plunge pool. The main building is elegant and includes an air-conditioned library with an extensive collection of wildlife books, a wine cellar and a beautiful viewing deck.
Mala Mala is the largest of the Sabi Sands Reserves. Not only does it offer its guests the largest game-viewing area, but it also has much the largest border with the Kruger National Park itself –this virtually guarantees good game as animals can wander in from the Kruger. Just to add to the advantages of staying here, Mala Mala also has the largest river section of any private reserve. This is invaluable as game-viewing is dependent on the river, especially in the dry season.
