Royal Malewane, in South Africa’s renowned Kruger National Park, has been voted one of the world’s top 20 resorts by Conde Nast Traveller, so a holiday here is guaranteed to offer optimum levels of luxury and expertise. Situated in Thornybush Private Game Reserve, this deluxe destination will allow you to get up close and personal with all kinds of African fauna - including, of course, the covetable Big Five.
An exclusive setting
Royal Malewane is a small-scale property, offering on-site six luxury and two Royal suites, along with six en-suite bedrooms in Africa House. The farmstead, meanwhile, has three luxury farm suites and a three to four-bedroom private villa. All options have spacious outdoor decks that meld seamlessly into the African bush, allowing you unparalleled views over the bush and its native wildlife. Accommodation is air-conditioned and decorated in a soothing, authentic African style, with features such as antique furniture, free-standing bath tubs and plush rugs.
Sunrise, sunset and sundowners
A stay of at least three nights at Royal Malewane is recommended - not least to the advantage of the twice-daily game drives at sunrise and sunset. After which, of course, you may like to indulge in the classic African tradition of sundowners - sipping a delicious cocktail as the sun disappears over the horizon. Evening dining often takes place outside, so you can drink in those incomparable views over the landscape as you dine. Imagine the thrill of discussing the sights of the day - would it be a tower of giraffes at dawn, or an evening glimpse of a magnificent leopard crossing the track?
Dine and unwind
If witnessing a lion hunt isn’t enough, our beautiful, refined food prepared by highly skilled chefs, should provide ample sustenance. Then there’s our Bush Spa - voted the finest safari spa in Africa - with Healing Earth products, decadent treatments, a pool, hot and cold baths

We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
Well we are back in the UK after an amazing trip for a very special birthday and must thank Azure in Chester and Jayne O'Gorman for organising everything after we won the auction bid for this trip with SeaDream Yacht Club at Valerie's Summer Ball last year! We had the trip of a lifetime, met amazing people, visited fabulous places and befriended the superb crew aboard SeaDream I. We couldn't fault a single thing onboard - just amazing and hope we can meet the crew again at some future date! I even cried when i had to leave! Well done Azure and Jayne O'Gorman.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
