Royal Malewane

  • Game Viewing
    Game viewing here is superb, guided by some of the highest qualified rangers and trackers in the Kruger.
  • Private Plunge Pools
    The suites are simply exquisite, each with their own private plunge pool and gazebo.
  • The Spa
    Simply the best spa we’ve seen in any safari lodge. You could quite easily spend the entire day up there.
  • The Food
    Head chef John Jackson continues to produce incredible cuisine on a daily basis. Our favourite dining experience has to be the Bedouin tent in the middle of the bush.
