Royal Malewane's Three Luxury Safari Lodges

In addition to their spacious suites, each lodge offers travellers spacious private safari villas.

Accommodation

Royal Malewane: Malewane Lodge

A classic and traditional bush style lodge, brimming with old world elegance and timeless luxury. This is the original Biden Family homestead. Malewane Lodge’s six palatial Luxury Suites, two Royal Suites (two-bedroom bush villa with private services) and Africa House (an exclusive-use villa with six bedrooms and private services) provide an elegant refuge in the heart of the bush.

Accommodation

Royal Malewane: The Farmstead

Intimate and more contemporary in style, The Farmstead has three Luxury Farm Suites, each with a beautiful deck and a private pool overlooking the bush. The Farmhouse is a three-and-a-half-bedroom exclusive use villa with private services.

Accommodation

Royal Malewane: Waterside

With fearless splashes of colour and a uniquely bold design, the visual impact of a stay at Waterside completely redefines the traditional safari experience with four Luxury Suites, one two-bedroom Baobab Suite, and Waterside House – a private villa with four bedrooms.

This was a unique experience of a life time. Everything was superb, luxurious and well executed. Everything was looked into the most scrupulous details with a true sense of classic safari romance. Their night-game drives are a must, Fantastic!

I thought I liked things simple and sepia in the bush in Africa. And why bother with a plunge pool when you have an elephant at the watering hole to contemplate? But that was before I spent a long weekend at The Farmstead at Royal Malewane. Long live fuschia, turquoise, and emerald green, I say – how fresh. As for the plunge pool, there is no place better from which to take in the sights and sounds of a hot African afternoon.

It takes daring and smarts to step away from neutral zones and break out in colours that only nature has the courage to do. The result is Africa House. Africa House has not only been populated with furniture sourced from Liz Biden’s wide travel, she has also introduced a riot of accent colour that would fail in the hands not quite as skilled and savvy.

Never before had I experienced the wonders of Africa like this. Royal Malewane is a magical place that stays in your mind forever. I’m always dreaming of going back with my grandson so he too can experience the true Africa and the splendour of the lodge and it’s staff.

One of my first experiences in the bush, staying at Royal Malewane, was the extreme comfort of it all. Every detail was perfection, from the bed linen to the Lapsang Souchong in the tea caddy.
