Royal Malewane & Africa House

Royal Malewane & Africa House

Royal Malewane Safari lodge allows you to experience the wild heart of Africa’s bushveld in elegant colonial style.

Situated in the Thornybush Private Game Reserve which forms part of the Greater Kruger area, Royal Malewane offers guests accommodation with old-word grandeur in the magical setting of incredible natural beauty.

Each of the six spacious luxury rooms offer complete seclusion with a private rim-flow pool. Guests can enjoy the crackle of a comforting fire in their own fireplace. The Royal and Malewane suites come with their own kitchen and dining area in classic colonial bush style. Make the most of the natural beauty of your surroundings on the huge wooden deck or large rooms in these suites.

For the traveler looking for the ultimate luxury, Africa House is the perfect setting for your safari experience. Africa House is situated apart from the main lodge and with its pricate chef, butler, housekeepers, ranger, tracker and game drive vehicle, this is a self-contained bush paradise.

Seclusion, sophistication and superlative safari adventures - Dec 2011

It would be a disservice to label Royal Malewane, situated in Limpopo's Thornybush Game Reserve, as simply a luxury bush lodge. Managing to be both unstuffy and first-class, it’s a place of privilege that in every respect transcends expectations, leaving guests feeling both like pampered traveller and wilderness adventurer. Few places prioritise guest experience to quite the same degree. But then it's the kind of safari lodge that conjures up every superlative in the book.
