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 for our team of over 600 here in South Africa.

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.

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.
