The Langetulani Crèche was founded in March 2014 by a lady named Brenda with only 3 children enrolled at the time. Since then the little daycare has grown to 18 children ranging in age from 6 months to 5 years old. At the moment Lanetulani consists of one small classroom so most of their lessons will take place outside under a tree. The crèche provides basic meals and care to the children. Since the beginning of 2018 Royal Malewane has been involved with raising funds to help uplift Langetulani towards being a fully functioning crèche. Langetulani is however still in need of basic amenities such as running water, additional classrooms, a kitchen area and bathrooms.

A Message From Liz Biden

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

Even though our hotels remain closed, 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 and various Covid-19 Relief Feeding Schemes which need our help now more than ever.

We invite you to take the first step in planning your next trip by purchasing A Royal Portfolio Bond. You will receive an additional 25% in value and we will contribute ZAR2,500 to the Foundation on your behalf.

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.
