Royal Malewane & Africa House


As luxurious as it gets deep in the bush – palatial and opulent, furnished with antiques, burnished silks, chandeliers and Persian rugs. There are just eight capacious suites, each with its own spacious wooden deck, private plunge pool and butler service. Wooden walkways link each one to the main camp with its dining room, boutique and library.

Hidden in the bush a few yards away is the Waters of Royal Malewane, a spa that would not look out of a place in a five- star city hotel, but for a passing springbok. Food is an important element in any stay here with gourmet feasts held under the stars in the boma, hidden in a Bedouin tent or in the elegance of the dining room. This, plus great game viewing with the Big 5, over 300 different species of bird and some of Africa’s finest safari guides equals an unrivalled experience.

Africa House
Just five minutes from the main lodge is a private villa originally built for the owners of Royal Malewane, but now available for private rental. Extravagantly spacious with six bedrooms and large living and dining areas, it comes with its own safari vehicle, ranger and tracker as well as its own chef and housekeeping staff – ideal for special celebrations with families or a group of friends.


Our Thoughts

The mother jewel in Liz Biden’s Royal Portfolio crown, Royal Malewane sets the safari standards for the Kruger area which the rest try to follow. If he is available, ask for Juan Pinto to take your game drive – he  is amongst Africa’s best.

Besides, Royal Malewane offers its guests a complete array of Kosher meals, prepared in accordance to proper required standards.
