Rattray's on MalaMala, South Africa.................the epitome of regal colonial safari-style, offering a glimpse of an era long past.
The beautiful book I was given as a remembrance of my stay.
Paula arriving at our 'home' for 5 fabulous days.
The open doorway welcomed......and the shutters, you must remember how much I LOVE shutters on the windows, outside and in! Paula had prepared me, somewhat! "Mar, you'll love our khaya with a foyer decorated with paintings, a table to drop your bag, camera sunglasses, bug spray and key - not that it's ever necessary to lock the door -and all the luxuries so unexpected in a safari 'tent'!"
Each khaya functions as an inclusive home, resplendent with hand-selected furnishings, lavish bathrooms, a secluded outdoor shower and private heated plunge pool.
