Royal Malewane

    The property, on the western fringe of Kruger National Park, hosts no more than 20 guests at a time in a setting that, aside from the elephants roaming the backyard, feels like home. Inside Royal Malewane’s rooms, Asian antiques and South African paintings commingle with the camp’s traditional colonial decor. Accommodations Six one-bedroom suites and pair of two-bedroom suites (the Royal and the Malewane). Recreation Elephant-back safaris, helicopter flights, hot-air-balloon rides, and golfing at the nearby Hans Merensky Golf Estates. Dining Royal Malewane is one of the few resorts in South Africa to possess a blazon from the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs international gastronomic society. Worthy Diversion In the nearby village of Acornhoek, you can visit with weavers, mud-bowl makers, and sangoma (traditional healers). Rates Individual suites are $1,160 per night, including meals and game drives. The Royal and Malewane suites cost $5,540 a piece per night, inclusive of a private chef, butler, and four spa treatments per suite, per day.
