Rattray's on Mala Mala

Rattray's on MalaMala offers a glimpse of an era long past, when distant travelers 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, the newest addition to the MalaMala portfolio is a culmination of over 40 years of experience within the Rattray Family. Rattray's on MalaMala 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.


    The impressive lounge (filled with relics from safari days of old),air-conditioned dining room and historic bar are conducive to sociable evenings.
