Royal Malewane

Kruger National Park, South Africa

Oozing the romance of a bygone era, Royal Malewane is an opulent oasis that effortlessly blends rustic glamour with modern comforts. Located in Thornybush Private Nature Reserve, this luxury lodge offers unrivalled game viewing, and the classic African safari experience.

From feasting under the stars, to strolling around the Royal Malewane Spa courtyard, the pace here is slow and tranquil, with plenty of time to relax in between game drives abundant in incredible game. We love the award winning spa – the courtyard has a beautiful, slightly Moroccan vibe with its heated lap pool adorned with sun loungers, and the spa itself features hot and cold African baths, a steam room, a gym, and private casitas for rejuvenating treatments.

The accommodation consists of six Luxury Suites, two Royal Suites with two bedrooms, and Africa House, an exclusive-use villa with six bedrooms – each with an outdoor shower and deck. All have phenomenal views and colonial style décor.

Indulging in delicious food and wine is a pleasure Royal Malewane does well, offering delectable dishes in the charming Bedouin Tent, adorned with lanterns and providing the chance to dine under the stars. There’s even the chance to enjoy a personalised dining experience, and there is a wide range of brilliant whiskies and wines.
