Why we Love Royal Malewane Lodge

A beautiful classic design with the modern touch blending old world safari romance and nostalgia with brand new furnishings and décor in the heart of the Greater Kruger National Park where the wilderness is all that matters.

Brilliant game drives and bush walks where safari enthusiasts learn more about nature than they ever thought possible, getting up close and personal with iconic wildlife and all the tiny critters too.

Children are welcome in the opulent Royal Suites with two enormous en-suite bedrooms leading off a spacious living room and dining area.

Indulge in sensual treatments at the Bush Spa and let the passionate chefs delight you with nightly feasts served around the fire in the traditional boma under the African star.
