EPITOME OF CLASSIC SAFARI
Royal Malewane offers extraordinary luxury, combining the romance of a bygone age with every modern-day comfort. It pretty much epitomises the classic safari experience, and is a haven of old-world charm and stylish splendour.
Game activities are excellent, driven by arguably the most qualified guiding team in Africa. A particular emphasis is on the role of the tracker in working with the guide to produce exceptional viewing. They find elusive wildlife while the ranger engages with you as guests and ensures safe passage.
THE BEST GUIDES & TRACKERS
The depth of knowledge and skills in the team is remarkable. Specialist Knowledge and Skills (SKS) qualifications abound. Two of the Kruger’s three Master Trackers are here. There is an academy training the next generation. The guiding team has over 300 years of African bush experience between them.
SMALL GROUPS, PHOTOGRAPHY
Six guests are the maximum on each vehicle for comfort and space for photographic equipment. Photographic Safaris are a specialist activity to organise in advance.
Walking is fantastic with the potential for tracking and thrillingly close encounters with dangerous animals under the safe guidance of all this expertise.
There are six luxury suites, palatial in size and amenities, and with exceptional views.
Two Royal suites have two bedrooms each, a huge outside deck and crystal-clear pool. They offer private chef, butler and a dedicated ranger and tracker team. Your private vehicle is at your disposal and can be used flexibly for family safaris, with children under 10 allowed here or in the villa.
Africa House is an exclusive use bush villa with six bedrooms. Each has vibrant and eclectic furnishings. Light floods into en-suite bedrooms, each of which enjoys a private outside shower and deck. Antique furniture, carved four-poster beds from Mombasa, plush silk furnishings and Persian rugs create an exotic and luxurious feel.
FINE FOOD & WINE
Food and wine is exceptional, with a constantly changing menu and a wide variety of beautiful settings in which to savour the contemporary cuisine. The pinnacle of the culinary offering is an eight course dinner with matching flight of wines.
The Safari spa is a destination in itself and includes a fully-equipped gym, steam room, hot and cold African baths and private casitas for relaxation or treatments.
There is a heated lap pool. African curios are on offer at a small shop.
The Royal Cubs programme offers a range of activities including Junior Rangers: a scatalogue, casting moulds from tracks, identification of animal, birds and plants and a play book.
