Royal Malewane is an exclusive luxury African safari getaway for those who value privacy, personalised service and the best game viewing in Africa. Situated on a private reserve within the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa, this luxury African safari lodge hosts a maximum of 20 guests in the utmost luxury and style. Six suites offer complete seclusion and stunning views, while the Lodge itself has an atmospheric air-conditioned Library, Curio Shop and Dining and Sitting Areas with fantastic outlooks onto the bush. Two completely private Suites (both sleeping 4) provide an even more exclusive luxury African safari experience, while the self-contained Africa House, a few minutes’ drive from the main Lodge, is the perfect option for families or groups of up to 12. Gym and spa facilities offer the chance for exercise and relaxation between game drives.

Game Lodge Dining at Malewane

Special dinners are one of the highlights of the Royal Malewane game lodge dining experience. The game lodge dining area and lounge overlook the waterhole, often resulting in some spectacular mealtime game viewing. All meals, local beverages and house wines are included. Enjoy a full breakfast, lunch and gourmet dinner in the elegant setting of the main lodge whilst soaking up the picturesque surroundings.

Game lodge dining outdoors lets you experience the incredible atmosphere of the bush at night. In the Boma, serenaded by frogs and crickets and entertained by traditional singing and dancing, you will enjoy delicious flame-grilled fare under a dazzling canopy of stars. Dinner in our Bedouin tent bedecked with Moroccan lanterns is equally special, as braziers blaze high and a wonderful selection of delectable dishes forms an exotic feast of flavours. We handpick a selection of South Africa's finest wines to complete each meal.

Indoor dinners usually begin with a touch of sophistication. Exhilarated from your evening drive, enjoy a cocktail and discuss the highlights of your bush adventure with your guide. Then move to a glittering table beside the fireplace and indulge in a sumptuous banquet lit by twinkling candles. Personalised service of the highest order in our game lodge dining experience means that you will never want for anything.

Royal Malewane also offers the only fully Kosher safari in Africa. The chefs source the finest Kosher ingredients and prepare orthodox meals of the highest order. The chefs have been professionally trained in accordance to the Bethdin and the kitchen has been fitted with the latest required equipment. Please speak to us about private chefs and any dietary requirements.

Each double suite is blissfully private: you can sit on your deck and watch the wildlife, swim in the pool or take a nap in the spacious bedroom. Palatial bathrooms with stunning bush views are the epitome of luxury game lodge accommodation, and with your own complimentary stock of drinks and snacks, this is definitely a home from home.

A huge outside deck complete with pool allows you to make the most of the wild beauty of the surroundings and enjoy the warmth of the sunshine in complete privacy. Inside, the décor is classic colonial bush style, brimming with old world elegance that is perfectly suited to luxury safari accommodation.
