Royal Malewane: Offering an Old World Atmosphere in the Middle of Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Experience a safari like no other! An extraordinary style and comfort at Royal Malewane. A magical place for a timeless interlude in total harmony with nature.

Live a unique safari experience at Royal Malewane. It is in an absolutely unique setting in the heart of the Thornybush Private Reserve in South Africa that this intimate and luxurious hotel is located. Situated in the greater Kruger National Park, the largest wildlife reserve in the country, Royal Malewane has been designed to reflect its natural surrounding: quiet, beautiful and relaxing. The main lodge offers an old world atmosphere, chic elegance, thatched roofs and antique furniture. Consisting of 6 luxurious suites, 2 royal suites, and an exclusive 6-bedroom private villa called Africa house, this main lodge is a true refuge in the middle of the South African Bush.

All suites are in total harmony with nature. They breathe the romance and beauty of a by-gone era while offering the luxury of modernity. The rooms are decorated in a neo-classical style comprising of victorian tubs, four-post bed, in-door and out-door showers, glowing fire places, and wooden decks with private plunge pools. These suites offer absolute privacy and an unbstructed views of the adjacent watering hole. This allows you to observe beautiful wildlife of all shapes and sizes which includes the Big-Five. This place offers a pinnacle of luxury with the savannah and its residents as your only neighbors.

A new farmstead is one of the best additions to the Royal Malewane. With three luxury suites and a farmhouse, a 3.5 bedroom-villa, the entire lodge can be privately booked for an exclusive-use stay. Light oak, wrought-iron furniture, shades of blue and white with touches of bright colors, sumptuous verandas and a collection of African art, this style is more contemporary than that of the main lodge. The farmstead offers a different, but equally authentic experience. It is a place to discover the reserve and its wonders in private.

For relaxation, Royal Malewane also has a private with jacuzzi, heated pool, steam room, and a range of treatments and massages.

Dining at Royal Malewane is a unique and an indulgent experience with a constantly changing menu and a wide variety of beautiful settings in which to savor the contemporary cuisine accompanied by great South African wines.

Royal Malewane also offers bush-drives where those who are curious at heart can discover the nature of the Big Five under the guidance of the qualified expert rangers. If you opt for this, you have a chance to look at the over 100 mammal species, over 300 bird species, and an extensive coverage of plant-life, making this a truly unrivalled wildlife experience.
