An uber-stylish, privately-owned bush camp in Kruger National Park with intimate game experiences.

The hotel

This luxury safari lodge (made up of three camps, Malewane Lodge, Farmstead and Waterside) offers an exceptional wildlife experience in extraordinary comfort. Royal Malewane’s expert guides and trackers are amongst the best in Africa, ensuring safe, intimate game experiences and close sightings of the Big Five.

At Malewane, six sophisticated suites are filled with hand-picked antiques andPersian rugs, with private pools on sprawling decks. Families will love the ultra-private and positively palatial six-bedroom Africa House which comes with a private butler and chef, private game drives and daily massages.

Farmstead, a 12-minute drive south of Royal Malewane, offers the same remarkable service for a handful of guests, while contemporary Waterside has four luxury suites and the two-bed Baobab Suite. The main lodge boasts a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs Blazon for its cuisine with nightly feasts under the African stars or in a Bedouin tent decked with Moroccan lanterns.
