Royal Malewane

Tucked away in the Thornybush Private Game reserve, west of the Kruger National Park, Royal Malewane is the epitome of luxury safari living. Small and exclusive, Royal Malewane offers the best of everything.

The eight palatial, exclusive suites boast extravagant bathrooms in a style of a bygone era with covetable art and antiques on display.

The two bedroomed Royal and Malewane Suites are more than an additional bedroom - they are sizeable self-contained options, ideal for families. The beautiful six bedroomed Africa House is set apart from the lodge, ideal for the ultimate hideaway for groups of friends or multigenerational holidays.

The rangers and trackers here are acknowledged as among the best in Africa, so expect to see leopard, cheetah and black rhino at very close quarters.

Why we like it 

To stay at Royal Malewane is to experience the ultimate in exclusive luxury and comfort. The Spa here would rival any world famous institution and the bush dinners are an impressively elaborate affair, sure to impress even the most fastidious visitor.
