The Lodge Facilities consist of a Library, African themed air-conditioned Dining room, a historic bar featuring photographs of the early days, a Large wooden safari deck where meals are served, a large filtered infinity pool with magnificent views across the Sand River, a small gym - for those who feel active and a steam room.
The food at Rattrys was stunning and catered to all types of tastes, Breakfasts and Lunches are both Buffet style with both a continental and hot breakfast being served, for dinners we spent the evenings in the Boma (which is weather dependant) around a lovely warm fire, lucky for us we had clear Skies and enjoyed a boma dinner for both of our nights at the lodge.
Onto the most important part of any Game Lodge - The Game Viewing, we had some wonderful sightings and saw all of the high profile animals such as Lion, Elephant, White Rhino, Buffalo and the elusive Leopard.
Besides all the high profile animals our Ranger Gordon found us Kudu, Impala, Hippo, Crocodile and many more different types of animals, he also found a 3m Rock Python and has a knack for finding Chameleons, he found 6 of them on just 1 of our night drives and has a record of 16 in only one night - truly a talented Ranger! and his Love of the Bush really does shine through.
