    “Royalty Lodge”

    After extensive research for our Safari we decided on the Royal Malewane. The staff did not disappoint, the atmosphere and the surroundings are spectacular!!! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed. A special thank you to Edward and his phenomenal staff they look out for your every need, we felt like we were home. Our guide Rudy was friendly and very knowledgeable. Can’t wait for our return. Don’t forget the use of the Spa, they definitely know how to pamper you!

    “Experience of a Lifetime!”

    We recently returned from a trip to Africa. We had 4 fabulous night stay at Royal Malewane….all I can say is WOW!!!!
    The lodge itself is luxurious. The staff pampered us….they felt like family after only a few days. The safari drives were absolutely unbelievable. We saw the “big 5” on the first day!
    Our room was easily one of the best we have ever experienced. The food was fantastic. Perfection! We hope to return.

    “Extraordinary”

    Without a doubt, our experience at the Royal Malewane, was the best part of an amazing trip filled with incredible experiences. Owned by the Biden Family and run by an amazing staff, we wanted for nothing. We had come from a two day stay in Hermanus at Birkenhead House, another Biden property, so we knew to expect 5-star treatment here as well. We were blown away. They catered to our every whim and even those we didn’t know we wanted, in a setting that was spectacular. The experience was so layered. The wildlife drives were the reason we came but there was so many things that were done, on so many levels to enhance them, and our appreciation of them, that made it such a memorable stay.

    “Fabulous”

    This was our last stop on our trip and it was a great way to end the trip. The accommodations were superior as was the service. The staff is warm and welcoming. There isn’t anything they won’t do for you. The game drives were great; our guide and tracker were extremely professional and fun. The spa and treatments were the best that we’ve had. Highly recommended a relaxing stop at the spa. We will miss everyone at the Lodge. Thank you for a fabulous stay.
