About Royal Malewane

A unique Kruger National Park camp where scaly pangolins are sometimes sighted, shy leopards pad past suites, lions and buffalos battle in age-old skirmishes and elephants drink from guests’ plunge pools, Royal Malewane is a magical getaway resting on the Western border of the Greater Kruger National Park.

Exuding a feeling of romance and nostalgia, Royal Malewane brings colonial-style accommodation to the pristine wilderness. Animals and humans live side by side in absolute harmony, creating unrivalled game viewing opportunities for guests. With the most qualified guiding team in Africa, unforgettable encounters with the big five are just a normal part of day-to-day life at the lodge.

The feeling of tranquillity is further entrenched by the award-winning Waters of Royal Malewane Bush Spa. The spa offers an assortment of world-class treatments in an unbeatable setting, as well as a gym, heated lap pool, steam room, and private casitas, which elephants have been known to visit.

Finally, there’s the food. Offering decadent dining beneath the stars, in a bush tent or the privacy of guests’ luxury suites, the menu changes frequently and kosher options are available.
