Luxury Holidays At Royal Malewane

Situated in a 13,000-hectare private game reserve, adjacent to Kruger National Park, Royal Malewane is a splendid synthesis of wildest Africa and Colonial splendour. At its heart, the main lodge is furnished with antiques, comfortable furniture and sumptuous Persian carpets. From here, eight freestanding guest suites are reached by elevated walkways and offer a splendid traditionally Colonial-style refuge deep in the heart of the bush, each complete with a canopied four-poster bed, an extravagant bathroom with windowside rolltop Victorian-style bath, a thatched gazebo and private infinity-edge plunge pool. For the ultimate in luxury safari living, take the secluded Royal Suite or Malewane Suite - the largest in Africa, with complimentary services including a private Butler and Chef, private game-drives and up to four massages per suite, per day. With just a maximum of twenty guests residing at any one time, Royal Malewane offers a private, luxury haven in an unspoiled African paradise.

Property Highlights:+

For a wonderfully romantic dinner, the Bedouin Tent is an exquisite venue for lavish bush dining. Twinkling lanterns help set the mood for this intimate affair and, of course, the food is top class. The background music, meanwhile, is a harmonious blend of choral verse and calls of the wild as their nighttime adventures begin. Round off the meal with a fireside nightcap, exchanging tales with fellow romantic souls, a trillion stars above.


Royal Malewane offers an exceptional safari experience, including traditional game-drives, as well as photographic and birding safaris, all accompanied by expert trackers and rangers. The wildlife is phenomenal - over 130 mammals and 300 bird species of varying size, colour and shape! Guests are encouraged to discover the bush at their own pace and game-drives are designed to match interests, whether it's plantlife, a certain bird or the 'Big Five' you really want to see. Experience the drama on foot or in the comfort of a 4WD - then look, listen, smell and find amazing creatures great and small.

Spa & Wellness

Royal Malewane Bush Spa is one of the best in the bush and offers therapeutic massages and luxurious body treatments. Facilities include a heated lap pool, treatment rooms, a steam room, hot and cold baths, a hair salon, Jacuzzi and private casitas. Healthy juices, snacks and full wi-fi internet access, a gym and a courtyard in which to relax complete the picture.

Dining & Gourmet

A unique feature of Royal Malewane is the Kosher Kitchen, where specially trained chefs use the finest kosher ingredients to prepare authentic food following strict kitchen guidelines. Advance notice is essential and additional charges apply, depending on whether you require the services of a Rabbi or Mashgiach.

Hotel Experiences

Get the maximum out of your wildlife photography by hiring Royal Malewane's specialised photographic vehicle. It comes complete with two 360-degree swivel chairs, a third row, gimble heads for an additional two photographers and, of course, the guidance and expertise of the lodge's Game Rangers, all expert photographers themselves and keen to offer practical assistance and top tips, gained from their own experiences. Advance bookings required.


Surround yourself with the romance of the African bush for a unique wedding day. The warm nature of the staff and fabulous Colonial-style setting - ideal for spectacular wedding photographs - ensure Royal Malewane is the perfect venue for a memorable wedding. Please contact your Travel Consultant for further information.

In Addition

In between your twice-daily game-drives, how about a horse-riding safari or a 'Cascades and Canyon' helicopter trip? There's also the option to play a challenging round of golf at Leopard's Creek Championship Golf Estate, which borders Crocodile River and is home to animals such as impala and giraffes. Staff will be more than happy to arrange additional excursions during your stay here.
