MalaMala Game Reserve is one of the founding fathers of luxury photographic safari. In existence since 1927, this massive thriving tract of land produces the most exciting wildlife experience this side of the equator.
As the largest private Big Five game reserve in South Africa comprising 13 300 ha (33 000 acres), MalaMala shares a 19 km (12 mile) unfenced border with the world-renowned Kruger National Park, and lies strategically sandwiched between the National Park and the Sabi Sand Reserve.
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.
Taking a maximum of 16 guests, the camp has 8 luxury suites (khayas), providing an opulent safari experience.
Also calling MalaMala home is Main Camp and Sable Camp.
