Family Holidays at the Royal Portfolio

The Royal Portfolio is a family run business and that's why it's so important to us that even though we are a luxury travel product, families can enjoy our properties.

As a general rule, children over 10 are welcome at our hotels so as not to disrupt guests that may wish not to be around young children. However children of all ages are welcome in the Royal Suites and at Africa House on safari at Royal Malewane, at The One Above and at The Silo in Cape Town and in the Vineyard Suites at La Residence in Franschhoek.

The best way for families to enjoy The Royal Portfolio properties is to take exclusive use of the hotels.

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.
