Apart from the wonderful community upliftment organisations La Residence supports, we are also committed to the following ongoing sustainability initiatives:

STIMULATING LOCAL BUSINESSES

  • We source the freshest ingredients from local suppliers of fruit, vegetables, baked goods, dairy, freshwater salmon and trout, wines, and a variety of handmade chocolate treats. These suppliers are all local, small-scale operations that in turn support their immediate communities.
  • We have an incredible array of local artists on display throughout the hotel.
  • We empower local entrepreneurs through outsourced services and suppliers.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

  • We make use of geothermal heating in each of our Vineyard Suites for all heating and cooling purposes.
  • We use energy-saving light bulbs
  • All showerheads have been replaced with certified water-saving attachments.
  • Only indigenous trees are planted. Removal of alien vegetation is an ongoing mission.
  • We have removed all plastic bottles and straws where possible.
  • We have four beehives in the estate which produce honey for our guests while benefiting the surrounding ecosystem.

TRAINING

  • We provide training and internship programmes for students from local colleges and academies.
  • We provide the venue for class presentations.

STAFF TRAINING & WELFARE

  • We provide continuous training for staff members through various health & safety, first aid, fire safety, inter-department, inter-company, study assistance, business coaching, and purpose & value initiatives.
  • We provide access for staff members to have an annual health check-up and contribute to every staff members’ Medical Aid.

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.
