The Lodge Layout

The Farmstead at Royal Malewane consists of a main lodge area, three Luxury Farm Suites, and The Farmhouse. The Luxury Farm Suites and The Farmhouse are either side of a central lodge area where guests will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner in the elegant and comfortable spaces. After dinner guests can relax around the fire pit on the vast deck and reflect on the day’s adventures. There is a double spa treatment room offering a variety of indulgent treatments as well as a gym.

A New Design

Following last year’s refurbishment of the existing lodge at Royal Malewane, The Farmstead offers something unique in terms of luxury safari accommodation in stark contrast to the ultra-modern style in vogue.

In the main lodge area a vintage North African banking kiosk is repurposed as a serving hatch for the delicious cuisine of Executive Chef Brandon Souris.

"We are extremely excited about the variety of accommodation that The Farmstead will introduce." Adriaan Erasmus, General Manager

Antique doors from Zanzibar welcome guests into the comfortable interiors that are a marriage of the contemporary style of The Silo Hotel and the capricious opulence of La Residence. Fabrics from Ardmore and Clarke & Clarke cover the plush sofas and designer chairs. Light oak, tin rooves, wrought iron and gentle hues of blue and white define the style with lively splashes of emerald and ruby. Despite the extravagant space there is a rustic homeliness to The Farmstead which places guests’ comfort at the heart of the experience.

Outdoor living is encouraged on the deep verandahs replete with hanging day-beds custom made for The Farmstead.

The collection of contemporary African art enhances The Royal Portfolio’s already extensive private collection with notable pieces by Kudzanai Chiurai and James Jana among other works from the AVA Gallery and Smith Studio. In keeping with the community involvement of The Farmstead, there are a number of pieces from Lalela.

Accommodation

There are three Luxury Farm Suites. Each has a spacious bedroom and an en-suite bathroom with a bath and a shower as well as an outdoor shower. There are large front and back verandahs as well as a beautiful deck and a private pool overlooking the bush where inquisitive wildlife might pay a little visit.

Children over 10 are welcome in the Luxury Farm Suites.

The Farmhouse is a three and a half bedroom private villa which is ideal for families or a group of friends. Similar to Africa House and the Royal Suites, The Farmhouse has its own private services including a chef, housekeeper and butler. Guests will have their own private safari vehicle with a dedicated Ranger and Tracker ensuring the ultimate in luxury. There are three main bedrooms as well as a smaller children’s room. There is a magnificent deck with a large swimming pool flowing out into the bush. The total area of The Farmhouse is 636 square metres (6845 square feet) including the vast verandahs and deck. Children of all ages are welcome in The Farmhouse.

Community & Conservation

In keeping with The Royal Portfolio’s Purpose and Values, The Farmstead is part of a broader project to uplift local communities.

Support for the community and conservation of the environment are inextricably linked. The local community needs to realise the financial gains of tourism in order to see the value in protecting wildlife and the environment. The Farmstead land is leased from the local community. Not only will The Royal Portfolio employ and develop members of the community, but at the end of that long lease both the land and the asset will revert to the community with the option to continue working with The Royal Portfolio in perpetuity.

The Farmstead is managed by Nick Daneel and by the General Manager of Royal Malewane Adriaan Erasmus.

Simply contact our reservations team for further information about The Farmstead or to make a reservation.

You can also book any of The Royal Portfolio’s properties quickly and easily online.
