At The Royal Portfolio we believe passionately in investing in Africa. Our Purpose & Values dictate that we uplift local communities, promote conservation and protect the environment.

There are two aspects to this business ethos – our internal, daily operations and our external impact on the broader community. In order to guide these projects and processes, we have implemented the Three Crowns framework.

Sustainable tourism is about ensuring a long-term future for African tourism based on partnership and community benefit. Revenue from tourism should be used to ensure sustainability of the industry, to create jobs and to conserve Africa’s precious wildlife and spectacular landscapes for generations to come.

While The Royal Portfolio Foundation focuses on specific fundraising initiatives for various property specific projects, The Royal Portfolio’s Three Crowns Framework addresses issues around each property’s internal operations and how these impact our external environments.

A Message From Liz Biden

Our thoughts are with those around the world battling the direct and indirect effects of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Royal Portfolio is doing all we can to assist our guests, staff and travel partners at this challenging time. We are taking measures to ensure the sustainability of our business so that we can continue to provide employment, salaries and medical aid for our team of over 600 here in South Africa. We are reviewing the situation daily.

The Royal Portfolio Foundation remains committed to supporting numerous conservation and community projects through this difficult time including our counter-poaching initiatives at Royal Malewane.

We encourage those with existing bookings to postpone rather than cancel their trips where possible. Our Reservations Team is available to assist with enquiries Mon – Fri | 8am to 5pm (GMT +2).

Thank you to our guests, staff, suppliers and business partners for your understanding and incredible support as we work together to get through this.

Please visit the South African government's dedicated Covid-19 portal for the latest South African information.

We look forward to a time when we are all able to travel safely and responsibly once again and hope that you will remain inspired by the amazing natural beauty and wildlife of Africa during this difficult time.
