Experience the magic of Rattray’s on MalaMala with over 40 years of beauty and extravagance!
Rattray’s on MalaMala offers a glimpse of an era long past, when distant travellers to Africa married the magic of the wild with an elegance and refinement that have been immortalized in Karen Blixen’s epic tale, ‘Out of Africa’. The epitome of regal colonial safari-style, Rattray’s on MalaMala is a culmination of over 40 years of experience within the Rattray Family.
Rattray’s on MalaMala (situated near MalaMala Main Camp), 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. Each suite or khaya (the Zulu for “home”) functions as an inclusive home, resplendent with hand-selected furnishings, lavish his-and-hers bathrooms, a secluded outdoor shower and a private heated plunge pool.
Rattray’s hosts sixteen guests in eight luxury “khayas” (the Zulu word for “home”). Each acting as an exclusive home with hand-selected furnishings, crystal and leather, Rattray’s is a treat of the finer things in life.
