Located in Thornybush Private Game Reserve, Royal Malewane is a secluded luxury retreat adjacent to the Kruger National Park. The lodge features a spa center, gym and private pools.

The stylishly decorated suites combine colonial charm, old world elegance and stylish decor. Each is fully air conditioned and features a private wooden deck with plunge pool. Walkways connect the suites to the main lodge. The spacious and elegant 6-bedroom villa is equipped with four-poster beds, antique furnishings and a private pool.

The lodge has a dining area overlooking a waterhole with game viewing opportunities. Meals under the stars are served around the fire in the traditional boma or out in the African Savannah. Special dietary menus are available on advance request.

Guided game drives with expert rangers and trackers are conducted in the morning and afternoon aboard specialized open-top Land Rovers.
