The People of The Royal Portfolio

Our people are fundamental to the guest experience. And that’s why The Royal Portfolio places so much emphasis on finding the right people who embody our Purpose & Values. The Royal Portfolio remains a family-owned and run business. The Biden family has created a loyal and passionate culture where our guests’ comfort and experience is paramount.

Since The Royal Portfolio started in 1999 we have carefully built a team of extraordinary individuals capable of delivering the highest levels of customer service, not only because they have received the best training, but because they possess a certain sixth sense – an intuition that differentiates The Royal Portfolio staff. Over 50% of The Royal Portfolio team has been with the company for over five years and a great many from the very beginning.


A Message From Liz Biden

South Africa's international borders are now open for leisure travel from medium and low-risk countries and for business travel from high-risk countries with a valid business travel permit. The list of high-risk countries will be updated every two weeks. Travellers require a certified, negative test result taken within 72 hours from the time of departure. Travel insurance is mandatory.

Birkenhead House, La Residence and Royal Malewane are all open and we look forward to welcoming international visitors back to our beautiful country. The Silo Hotel will reopen on Monday 23 November 2020.

We have taken every precaution to keep our guests and staff safe. Our hotels and lodges comply with the strictest TBCSA and WHO hygiene protocols and provide ample space for social distancing. Please visit the South African government's dedicated Covid-19 portal for the latest South African information.

The Royal Portfolio Foundation remains committed to supporting numerous conservation and community projects including our counter-poaching initiatives and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes.

We look forward to welcoming our wonderful guests from near and far.

Our Reservations Team is available to assist with any enquiries Mon – Fri | 8am to 5pm (GMT +2).
