There are two accommodation options at Royal Malewane – The Main Lodge and The Farmstead. The Main Lodge is a classic and luxurious safari lodge with just six Luxury Suites, two Royal Suites (which each have two bedrooms), and Africa House – the exclusive use villa with six bedrooms. The Farmstead is more contemporary in style and is just a 12 minute drive south of the Main Lodge. The Farmstead has three Luxury Farm Suites, and The Farmhouse – a three and a half bedroom private villa.

Put simply, there’s something for everyone! This is a great choice for groups preferring exclusive use villas or for extra-large groups to book the entire camp.
