    MalaMala Rattray’s Camp

    Nestled in the forest on the banks of the Sand River, lies MalaMala Rattray’s Camp. This Sabi Sands safari setting features an impressive lounge, air-conditioned dining room, cozy bar, library, fitness facility, and massage service. Expansive wooden decks provide a great space for relaxation from which to watch passing wildlife. An infinity pool at MalaMala Rattray’s Camp with a spectacular view is perfect for summer afternoons while meals are enjoyed under starlit skies, on the deck, or in the enclosed dining room.

    Mala Mala Game Reserve is the oldest and most historical private game reserve in South Africa and the first to transition from hunting to photographic safaris. Tucked behind the Sand River, MalaMala Private Game Reserve lies between Sabi Sands and the Kruger National Park. With the expert rangers and trackers at MalaMala Rattray’s Camp, your twice-daily game drives promise to be unforgettable adventures filled with wild wonders. Africa’s Big 5 as well as giraffe, zebra, antelope, cheetah, wild dog, hippo, and warthog will leave you mesmerized and intrigued. When not traversing the bush on a 4×4 safari drive, join your guide on a walking safari. This gives you an opportunity to learn about the flora and see smaller mammals, insects, and birds up close, providing exclusive photo opportunities. In addition to MalaMala Rattray’s Camp, the reserve is also home to two other luxury lodges, Sable Camp and Mala Mala Main Camp.
