As the world battles to come to terms with the human and economic impact of Covid-19, we are acutely aware of the challenges facing communities and conservation projects in Africa. Even though our hotels are closed The Royal Portfolio Foundation continues to support critical community and conservation projects including counter-poaching initiatives at Royal Malewane and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes which need our help now more than ever.
For those interested in travelling to South Africa with a purpose we have created a version of our Royal Itinerary focused on Foundation-based activities.
At The Royal Portfolio we believe passionately in investing in Africa. In keeping with our Purpose and Values, we strive to uplift local communities, promote conservation and protect the environment.
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 educate and to create jobs and to conserve Africa’s precious wildlife and spectacular landscapes for generations to come.
The Royal Portfolio Foundation was established by the Biden Family in order to give back to our local communities by contributing towards various upliftment and conservation projects within our Three Crowns sustainability framework.
Each of The Royal Portfolio’s properties supports a number of projects relevant to their unique location and particular situation.

Our thoughts are with those around the world battling the direct and indirect effects of the Covid-19 outbreak.
South Africa's borders remain closed. In accordance with our Government's lockdown regulations, Birkenhead House, La Residence and Royal Malewane are now open for domestic business travel and intra-provincial leisure travel. The Silo Hotel opening date has yet to be set. 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.
Through these challenging times, 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.
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.
