About Royal Malewane
Royal Malewane is one of Africa’s most luxurious wildlife lodges, renowned for its Big 5 game viewing.
Set amongst indigenous acacia trees, the six Luxury Suites are linked by wooden walkways to the lodge. Each suite has its own wooden deck, rim-flow pool and thatched gazebo. The Royal and Malewane Suites accommodate four guests each with the complimentary services of a butler, private chef and up to four complimentary massages per suite per day. The Royal Malewane Bush Spa is perfect for guests seeking relaxation or rejuvenation.
Luxury meets the wild in the heart of Africa’s finest bushveld where Royal Malewane's expert guides and trackers ensure intimate game experiences and close sightings of the Big 5. Sumptuous dining is a signatory feature as the lodge is the first to boast a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Blazon for cuisine.
Safari: Guests will delight in Big 5 game viewing.
Spa: Enjoy luxurious body treatments and hydrotherapy by internationally qualified therapists.
We do not accept children under 10 years of age in the lodge unless the lodge is booked on an exclusive basis or guests have booked the Royal or Malewane Suite. Please note that the lodge can be booked as a whole. Enquire about this when making a booking.
