      Rattrays on MalaMala

      Ultra-Luxury Lodging in the Greater Kruger National Park

      Rattray’s on MalaMala is located within the MalaMala Game Reserve. This private reserve lies strategically sandwiched between the Kruger National Park and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin. The unfenced borders between MalaMala and the Kruger National Park on one side, and the Sabi Sand Wildtuin on the other allow animals to migrate unhindered to the perennial Sand River which flows north to south through MalaMala for 20 kilometers (13 miles). This well preserved wilderness is a “honey-pot” to the most sought-after wildlife species, as well as a host of smaller creatures. MalaMala is part of a conservation gene pool that covers 5.5 million acres of land in the heart of the South African Lowveld. The reserve supports a variety of habitat types; dense riverine forest, acacia-combretum bushveld, open grassland and rocky outcrops, each sustaining different plant and animal species. Drives are varied and full, with a different view around each corner. Due to the rich ecosystem, sightings of the Big Five in the MalaMala Game Reserve reach astronomical proportions. In the 17 years that MalaMala has been providing a luxury safari experience, each of the Big Five have been viewed daily while on game drives at least 96% of the time. The epitome of regal colonial safari style, Rattray's on MalaMala bears the style of crystal and leather, with beautiful furnishings that are a treat to the connoisseur of the finer things in life, captured over generations on a land that remains as old as time. Rattray’s includes 8 luxury khayas (the Zulu for "home") for a maximum of 16 guests in camp. Each khaya functions as an inclusive home, complete with hand-selected furnishings, lavish “his” and “hers” bathrooms, secluded outdoor shower, private verandah with grand river views and private heated plunge pool, 24-hour temperature control air-conditioning, heating and overhead fans, hairdryer, direct dial telephones, mini-bar, safe and tea & coffee making facilities. Optional amenities include satellite television, laptop computer with wireless internet connectivity and DVD player. Morning and afternoon game drives are included in the accommodation cost.

        Off-Road Game Viewing

        In national parks and some other reserves, rules prohibit leaving the designated safari paths. But the wildlife are not always considerate enough to stay nearby. Get better vantages (and better photos) by heading off-road.
