Accommodation

Royal Malewane Game lodge has a Main Lodge which is more classic and grand in style and The Farmstead which is more intimate and contemporary.

The Main Lodge at Royal Malewane is a classic and luxurious safari lodge with just six Luxury Suites, two Royal Suites (which each have two bedrooms), and Africa House – our exclusive use villa with six bedrooms.

The Farmstead at Royal Malewane is intimate and more contemporary in style and is just a 12 minute drive south of the Main Lodge. The Farmstead has three Luxury Farm Suites, and The Farmhouse – a three and a half bedroom private villa.

Luxury Suite:
Boasting unparalleled views over the surrounding bushveld, Royal Malewane’s six palatial Luxury Suites are the pinnacle of refinement and opulence. Luxuriously appointed and fully air-conditioned, they provide an elegant refuge in the heart of the bush complete with private pool, an outdoor gazebo and a splendid bathroom with indoor and outdoor showers.

Royal Suite:
A huge outside deck complete with crystal-clear pool allows you to make the most of the surrounding wild beauty and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine in complete privacy. Inside, the décor is classic, brimming with old world elegance but adorned with Liz Biden’s signature playful touches and splashes of colour. There are two huge, en-suite bedrooms either side of a vast living room and dining area. Royal Suites have their own private services.

Africa House:
Africa House is a spacious and elegant, exclusive use bush villa with six en-suite bedrooms either side of a central courtyard. Each bedroom is uniquely decorated with a private outside shower and deck. Antique furniture, carved four-poster beds from Mombasa, plush silk furnishings and Persian rugs create an exotic and luxurious feel. The vast front deck provides the ultimate space to relax, dine and enjoy the beautiful swimming pool. Africa House has its own private services.

Luxury Farm Suite:
There are three Luxury Farm Suites at The Farmstead. Each has a spacious bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower. There are large front and back verandas as well as a beautiful deck and a private pool overlooking the bush where animals roam freely. Children over 10 are welcome in the Luxury Farm Suites.

The Farmhouse:
The Farmhouse at The Farmstead is a three and a half bedroom private villa. The Farmhouse has its own private services including a chef, housekeeper, butler, private safari vehicle, ranger and tracker. There are three main bedrooms as well as a smaller children’s room. There is a magnificent deck with a large swimming pool flowing out into the bush. Children of all ages are welcome in the Farmhouse.

Breakfast and Dining

Exquisite plating is second nature to the chefs at Royal Malewane for whom cuisine is certainly an art. The cuisine is complemented by a natural canvas to savour as much as the delicate flavours with the dining area overlooking the Malewane River where a variety of curious creatures great and small venture to slake their thirst. We can tailor a menu to your personal tastes and dietary requirements in consultation with our Executive Chef. And that goes for drinks too – have what you want, when you want, whether it’s a Bloody Mary to ease yourself into the day, a delicious flat white or a bottle of vintage red wine from our cellar.

The Bush Tent Dinners at Royal Malewane provides a feast in the heart of the African wilderness. A truly remarkable and romantic experience with glowing lanterns casting a gentle light among the brightly burning braziers.

Please speak to our reservations team for further information about the Kosher Kitchen as there is an additional cost for these services depending on whether the services of a Rabbi or Mashgiach are required.

All drinks are included in the rate at Royal Malewane. We have an extensive wine list from flagship red blends to boutique producers of lesser known varietals. With an extensive range of whiskies from around the world to choose from, Royal Malewane offers the largest whisky selection of any safari lodge.

Spa

Facilities at the safari spa are comprehensive and include a fully-equipped gym, a heated lap pool, steam room, and private casitas for relaxation or treatments.

Game Viewing

All the game rangers at Royal Malewane hold the highest FGASA qualifications as well as advanced rifle handling certificates. These qualifications ensure guests an exceptional game experience – not only while on game drive, but also on foot. Two daily game drives are included. Private game drives are subject to occupancy levels at the lodge and we are only able to confirm a private drive approximately two weeks prior to arrival. The private drives are at an additional fee. A private vehicle needs to be booked for the entire duration of the guests stay.
