Our Review of Royal Malewane:

Royal Malewane is an intimate and lavish safari lodge within the private Thornybush Game Reserve along the western fringe of Kruger National Park. Open-air living and dining areas with vaulted thatched roofs are decorated with British Colonial-style furnishings, African tribal artifacts and Persian carpets. Elevated walkways lead to six freestanding suites featuring scenic decks with private plunge pools, living areas with log fires, and baths with tubs and indoor/outdoor showers. In addition, two-bedroom Royal Suite and Malewane Suite each come with their own kitchen, chef, butler and guide; self-contained Africa House is suitable for parties of up to 12 people. Fine cuisine and excellent wildlife-viewing in open-topped Land Rovers; intimate spa with gym and pool.
