Rattray’s on Mala Mala



Slipped into the forest like a forgotten secret along the banks of the River Sand, Ratrays gives the discerning traveller a profound glimpse of a bygone era. An era where the African bush was first infused with Western refinement. Blending humble affluence, intimacy and unparalleled game-viewing, Ratrays will immerse you in the untamed soul of Africa.

Guests arrive to the warm smiles of our inspired team of experts, each devoted to creating cherished memories for our travellers. The camp boasts a gym, infinity swimming pools, massage services and unique steam rooms. The library is one of the camps jewels, housing rare African books and breath-taking works of art. The deck where meals are served is ideal for game-viewing, and the bar and dining room are air-conditioned to maximise your comfort.

Safari experiences are a respected institute at Ratrays. That’s why only 4 guests are allowed per safari vehicle, enabling our skilful rangers to dedicate time to each guest and give them a level of service that is truly unforgettable.


The Zulu word for home is “khaya”. We have 8 such Khayas that are Luxury Suites, capable of serving 16 guests. Indulgence reaches new limits within each suite with ‘his’ and ‘her’ bathrooms, clawfoot baths and double showers. An outdoor shower is available for a novel experience of freedom, and the heated plunge pool is tucked into the large wooden sundeck. For your feasting choices there is an indoor as well as outdoor dining area. Each room is air conditioned with instant temperature control and direct telephones to our waiting staff. There is regrettably no triple sharing at Ratrays and an age restriction of 16.
