Royal Malewane

A colonial-inspired bush lodge in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve

The spirit of Royal Malewane

An exclusive getaway for guests who value privacy, service and superb game viewing, Royal Malewane is set on a private concession within the greater Kruger area. The thatched suites with their wooden decks, plunge pools and gazebos offer unparalleled views of the bush. Each suite comprises an air-conditioned bedroom, sitting room and bathroom. The stylish Royal and Malewane Suites offer private sitting rooms and dining areas, as well as their own plunge pools, decks and gazebos. Complimentary services include a butler and chef, game drives and massages.

Dining is a grand affair, with the best china, silver and crystal set against crisp, white napery and superb meals prepared by the Lodge’s award-winning chef. Guests can relax with spa treatments or gym workouts, or they can curl up with a book from the Lodge’s library. Golf, hot-air ballooning and horse-riding safaris can be arranged nearby.
