Royal Malewane has three types of accommodations. Its six double suites feature an airy design and the modern comfort of air conditioning. Colonial-style furnishing and four-poster beds bring a timeless African ambiance to each and every guest, while the private plunge pool, wooden deck and gazebo are welcome extras that few similar safari resorts can provide. Suite guests get to enjoy a large Victorian bathroom and an outdoor shower. Each suite is completely private, with an elevated walkway connecting it to the main lodge. Two larger Royal Suites can accommodate four guests each. An outdoor deck and pool make this the perfect option for families or for people who want a little extra space. Like the standard suites, these accommodations feature colonial-era design, antique decorations and African curios that serve to create a strong sense of place. Large groups can rent the Africa House, Malewane’s palatial six-bedroom villa. This residence is ideal for groups or families who want to share the experience with one another. The villa features the same style of design and decor as the luxury suites. Each of the bedrooms has its own private deck, en suite bathroom with walk-in shower, and personalized touches that make it unique from the other five. Malewane’s spa is as impressive as its suites and villa. The spa features a heated lap pool, steam room, hot tub and traditional African hot and cold baths. Small casitas, which are used as private treatments rooms, line the pool deck. Healthy fresh juices and snacks are served to guests in the spa. In addition to massages and beauty treatments, the spa offers hair salon services. Natural products are used for all services and treatments. Royal Malewane boasts some of South Africa's best guides. You are assured of having a memorable bush experience. In addition to creatures that are sought after by every safari visitor (elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, hippos and zebras) guests at Malewane will see hundreds of bird species and a diverse array of landscapes. The beautiful Drakensberg Mountains frame the lowland areas where safaris take place. What to do Relax in the amazing spa. You can swim laps in the heated pool, soak in the traditional African tubs or enjoy a massage or skin treatment. Take a game drive with Malewane’s guides to see all of Africa’s most famous safari animals. Watch the sun set over the bushveld from your own private deck. All Images Provided by Royal Malewane

What we love

The privacy given to every guest. Even if you share the Africa House with other members of a group, you will have your own room, bath and private deck.

The location. The Kruger National Park area is one of Africa’s premiere safari destinations. The exotic animals that you came to see are literally right outside your door at Malewane.

The classic decor. Yes, the suites are undeniably luxurious here, but you will also be transported to a bygone time thanks to the colonial-era decor and African curios that are found in every room and suite.

What to know

Malewane is on a private game preserve. You will have the bushveld all to yourself during safari drives.

There are flights from Cape Town and Johannesburg to the area. Royal Malewane also has its own airfield, so you can charter a plane directly to the lodge if you choose.

Luxury Suites can accommodate two guests, Royal Suites can accommodate four, and the African House can host 12 people.
