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.
