Tucked away in the privately-owned Thornybush Game Reserve, Royal Malewane consists of 6 lavish standard suites, opulent royal suites and the regal African Villa. Royal Malewane accommodates up to 32 guests, but with a decent selection of common areas, guests are assured of privacy throughout. The camp is not protected by a perimeter fence, and guests are escorted to their rooms which are separated by elegant wooden walkways. Each room has a private plunge pool, private ‘sala’ (recreational lazing area), a large free-standing bath, spacious indoor shower and an outdoor shower. Dining at Royal Malewane is exceptional and no meal is served in the same setting more than once during your stay. A noteworthy selection of top quality wine complements the menu. It is carefully paired to enhance one’s culinary experience. The chef puts together differently themed meals such as fireside dining and tasting menus, all with an African fusion flavour. The formal service is on par with any luxury hotel in the world. Along with the spa at Royal Malewane, there is a large lap pool and a decent sized gym.
