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, complete with telescope, 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 continues 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 Mala Mala 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.
