My family and I, a group of 9, traveled around Africa for 3 weeks before we ended our travels at the Africa House in Royal Malewane. After staying at beautiful tented camps and accommodations around Southern Africa, it was our weekend- spent relaxing at a Royal Malewane. For a large group or family, Africa House is a must! We all... More

We stayed in one of the two bedroom suites. The rooms are big and luxurious. The large glass doors open up to an outdoor deck which has a private pool and amazing views. It's very tranquil. A great spot for a mid day nap, morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. At night we could hear the lions roar... More

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Malewane during the second week of September. We arrived from a lodge that we had loved, thinking that it would be hard to top and it turned out to be a wonderful experience. The accommodations are wonderful - you are there for the game drives, but wish you could spend more time... More

I planned a Safari trip for my wife for her big 4-0 birthday. I did some research and wanted to surprise her and pick a luxury safari tour for the last two nights before heading out to Victoria Falls. I figured this would be our time where we can relax and really enjoy the property and it's amenities that was... More

We just returned from Royal Malewane. We chose to stay there on our second leg of our safari trip. We have a goal of staying in all 3 Royal Properties and this is our second, after Birkenhead House. The resort is very nice, the spa is great and the service is fabulous. We saw many animals and had good game... More

We continued our initial trip to South Africa at Royal Malewane. It's a beautiful property with very attentive staff. The food was excellent and featured many game options, which were deliciously prepared. We had a couples massage and my wife had a facial at the spa. We both enjoyed the experience very much. Guide and tracker were great -- found... More

This lodge truly offers many outstanding experiences not easily found at comparable upscale lodges in South Africa. There are really two different lodge experiences, the more traditional main lodge with separate suites, clustered around a grand main area with restaurant, bar, shop and the spa close by. About 800 m distant the newer Africa house, with the suites and the... More

I don't write reviews often but this lodge warrants a review. When we arrived at Royal Malewane on our honeymoon my husband and I looked at each other and laughed, because the hotel is so amazing it's almost comical. It's intimate and private enough to feels almost like home, but at the same time so luxurious that it feels (and... More

We have been on many African safaris since 2002 and stayed at camps in Kenya, Tanzania, Botswana, and South Africa, and Royal Malewane ranks with the very best. I don't see how anyone could find fault with the accommodation here or the very high level of service and friendliness. We stayed in a luxury suite (#5) in the main lodge... More

The Africa House at Royal Malewane was the most amazing place to stay while visiting Thornybush Reserve. The luxury there matched with the adventure of being outside on 3-4 hour game drives are a the perfect combination. The food is incredible and all organic. You can't miss a massage at the spa, they are truly healing with their hands! While... More
