Discover Royal Malewane & Africa House
THE ROOMS Elevated walkways will lead you between the elegant colonial bush-style rooms, set on stilts right in the midst of the bush. Don’t be surprised if you see nyalas (African antelope) running around on your walk to your room. The gorgeous Luxury Rooms fitted with all mod-cons can accommodate up to two guests whilst the sprawling and palatial Royal and Malewane Suites we stayed at accommodate up to four people and features two gorgeous bedrooms complete with magnificent bathrooms with Molton Brown amenities, a fireplace, a kitchen, an outdoor infinity pool and a massive wooden deck overlooking the bush and our own computer too. Oh! Did I forget to mention Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, Elton John and Bono have all stayed in our suite?

If it’s a once-in-a-lifetime safari experience you seek, look no further than Royal Malewane situated on the Thornybush Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Area where opulence and excitement knows no limits. A tiny plane brought us to the Jackalberry Airstrip from where we were whisked off to the lodge in an open-top Land Rover. After a series of dusty tracks, we had arrived at our destination. We were warmly greeted and made to feel right at home by the entire team who made us feel like part of the family, and spoilt us thoroughly throughout. It’s no surprise that tears welled up in my eyes as we left this incredible lodge.

A safari hideaway for the stars, this ultra-luxurious, award-winning game reserve exudes the romance and beauty of a bygone age. It offers mind-blowing game viewing, plush accommodation and divine fare under beautiful skies.

It also comes with a private chef, butler, ranger, tracker and game drive vehicle, not to mention its own Boma (traditional African enclosure) for magical dinners under the stars. Wow!
