Project Description

Discover the magic of the African bush in classic elegance and style at Royal Malewane.

Royal Malewane is a luxury safari lodge in South Africa’s Greater Kruger National Park that exudes the romance and beauty of a bygone age while offering every modern comfort. The most qualified guiding team in Africa delivers an unrivaled wildlife experience providing fascinating insights into the complex ecosystems of the South African bushveld and ensuring the safety of our guests.

The Farmstead is a beautiful new lodge at Royal Malewane just a 12 minute drive south of the existing lodge. The land is elevated offering dramatic views over the canopies of the Greater Kruger National Park while the lodge itself surrounds a watering hole popular with the abundant wildlife. Guests at The Farmstead will enjoy the same remarkable service and delicious cuisine synonymous with Royal Malewane while experiencing the ultimate Big 5 safari with the most qualified guiding team in Africa.

The lodge is easily accessible by air and road and is located in Thornybush Private Game Reserve on the Western Border of The Greater Kruger National Park.

The Farmstead at Royal Malewane is the latest addition to The Royal Portfolio. On The Deck was proud to be the exclusive supplier for Liz Biden’s latest addition to the Royal Portfolio. Tshukudu Decking based in Hoedpsruit did a magnificent job installing all the decking for the rooms, walkways and main area. Garapa is a very easy-to-work-with timber, considering it’s density as a South American hardwood. It’s a durable and stable timber that performs extremely well in harsh climates. Garapa has a distinct golden yellow brown colour that naturally weathers to a grey tone with age.

Tshukudu Decking, owned by Dirkie Reed has vast experience installing timber for exclusive lodges in the Greater Kruger region and his finishing details are of the highest standard for what guests at Royal Malewane have come to expect. These decks will age perfectly to compliment this prestigious property and the finished product is truly spectacular.
