Dining at Royal Malewane
The safari experience is synonymous with exceptional food and wine.
Dining at Royal Malewane is a unique and indulgent experience with a constantly changing menu and a wide variety of beautiful settings in which to savor the contemporary cuisine prepared by Executive Chef, Brandon Souris and his dedicated team.
Exquisite plating is second nature to the chefs at Royal Malewane for whom cuisine is certainly an art.
When that art is served in one of Africa’s most breath taking locations, the dining experience becomes truly sublime. The cuisine is complemented by a natural canvas to savour as much as the delicate flavours with the dining area overlooking the Malewane River where a variety of curious creatures great and small venture to slake their thirst.
All meals, soft drinks, spirits and wines are included in the accommodation rates at Royal Malewane allowing our guests to completely relax and enjoy the endless temptations available.
The Bush Tent at Royal Malewane provides a feast in the heart of the African wilderness. A truly remarkable and romantic experience with glowing lanterns casting a gentle light among the brightly burning braziers.
The sounds of the wild and the local village choir provide the soundtrack to a very special evening where guests can enjoy being out in the bush with the convenience of flushing toilets And where better to enjoy a night cap than by the fireside under the African stars as your ranger recounts the stories of the day?

The Kosher Kitchen
Royal Malewane offers a kosher compliant kitchen. The chefs source the finest kosher ingredients and can therefore prepare fresh orthodox meals of the highest quality should a Mashgiach or Rabbi be present to supervise proceedings. Our team has been trained to understand the subtleties of kosher requirements and the kitchen has been fitted with the necessary equipment including separate crockery and cutlery.
Please speak to our reservations team for further information about the Kosher Kitchen as there is an additional cost for these services depending on whether the services of a Rabbi or Mashgiach are required.
