Private Residences

Stay in Greater Kruger's most spectacular luxury safari villas

A private safari villa offers the best of both worlds – the privacy and comfort of a luxury home coupled with the services and facilities of a five star lodge. The exclusive experience at Royal Malewane is something you will never forget. Our villas are ideal for families as children of all ages are welcome. Each villa has its own private services, which include a chef, butler, housekeeping team, ranger, tracker and safari vehicle. This means that you can go on game drive whenever you want – for as long as you want. Spa treatments can be arranged in the privacy of your private villa.

Our Family Escape package is a great way to experience a safari as well as the best of Cape Town and the Winelands.
