The Door That Opens to the Wonders of South Africa
The largest game reserve in South Africa, Kruger National Park, is the home of numerous treasures, yet few are as majestic as Royal Malewane. This safari-hotel brings back the romance of the past while guests enjoy all the commodities and luxuries of the present. Here, the classic safari experience turns into an unparalleled adventure alongside the most qualified team in the continent.
Lodging at the Royal Malewane is divided into two types of suites or three villas that boast a colonial style and décor that reflects the natural scenery that surrounds it. The suites feature air-conditioning, pool, and panoramic views—ideal for couples.
The villas, by contrast, are perfect for larger groups and are highly sought after thanks to their exterior showers, gardens where animals roam freely, private pools, individual bedrooms and bathrooms, and, in the case of The Farmhouse, chef, butler, and a safari vehicle.
The adventure begins with veteran guides who will take you outside to see some of the 300 mammal and 130 bird species that live in this region. Armed with binoculars and high-powered camera lenses, guests will be able to admire The Big Five: lions, leopards, buffalos, elephants, and black rhinoceros. Lessons about the flora and fauna of the region, and how every species benefits from one another to keep this beautiful place full of life will also be imparted.
The sensory experience doesn’t end here. At Royal Malewane you’ll be able to enjoy exquisite dinners and lunches created by executive chef Brandon Souris and his team of talented cooks. Moreover, you’ll be able to choose from an extensive selection of South African wines and over 60 whiskey varieties. Also, the Royal Malwane offers, as an exclusive service, a Kosher menu for those who require it.
