If it is the normal SAA configuration, then probably as 777ER says the central galley/toilet area. If you are curious have a look at the seat plans on SAA's website for the 744s.

777ER is correct. The galley/cart lift section is on the right and towards the middle of the plane. On the left side there are toilets and the purser workstation. The stairs for the UD are also located here.
