South Africa

Royal Malewane, Thornybush Game Reserve

Royal Malewane is one of our top exclusive South Africa getaways. Buried deep in the bush of Kruger National Park, this luxury camp plants you right in the middle of a booming animal kingdom… Priding itself in personalized service and calming ambience, the Royal Malewane holds a maximum of twenty guests at a time and will cater to your every need. Savour each tantalizing meal prepared by award-winning chef John Jackson, as you toast to a brilliant sunset.


Adjacent to Kruger National Park on the private Thornybush Game Reserve, Royal Malewane lies 30 miles from Hoedspruit. Walk alongside lions, and experience the bellowing cry of hippos just beneath your private deck in the water hole.

Your room

From the wardrobes to the beds, accoutrements at the Royal Malewane are the pinnacle of refinement and luxury. Enjoy bathing in large marble tubs, or game viewing on the royal suite deck fully equipped with an infinity pool, bohemian rugs, and plush chairs.

Why we like it

Not only is the service top-notch at this privy camp; it is endlessly thoughtful. Royal Malewane’s highly ranked spa treatments ranging from full body deep tissue massages to holistic foot rubs, will prove to be utterly blissful. After a long day of unearthing the park, return to your room to discover a package of sweets on your bed. Don’t fancy what’s being served for dinner? Chef Jackson will be happy to prepare a meal to your liking…no requests will stump this staff.
