Rattray's on MalaMala

  • Fodor's Choice


  • Superb game-viewing
  • Tantalizing views over the river


  • Tuscan villas in the bush may not be your idea of Africa
  • Though this may be a pro for some, no children under 16

Fodor's Review

The breathtakingly beautiful Rattray's merges original bushveld style with daring contemporary ideas. Stay in one of eight opulent khayas (think Tuscan villas) with spacious his-and-her bathrooms, dressing rooms, and private heated plunge pools. The entrance hall, with art by distinguished African wildlife artists such as Keith Joubert, leads to a huge bedroom with a wooden four-poster bed, lounge with comfy furniture, writing desks (for crucial nightly journal entries), antique Persian rugs, and a dining nook. Floor-to-ceiling windows with insect-proof sliding doors face the Sand River and lead to massive wooden game-viewing decks. Public areas include viewing and dining decks, an infinity pool, lounge areas, a library, and an impressive wine cellar.
