Located on the western border of the Greater Kruger National Park, Waterside at Royal Malewane lies within the bushwillows of the African savanna. The surrounding waterholes allow effortless wildlife viewing – including elephant and nyala – from the comfort of your suite. With the highly qualified guiding team, spot the Big Five during morning and evening safari drives and bush walks. 

The boutique lodge of 12 bedrooms features bright and colourful interiors with the maximalist touch of Liz Biden, one of the owners. The exposed beams preserve the lodge’s charm, while the large deck with a private plunge pool elevates the bush experience.  

Here, children are invited to explore their environment with Track and Sign lessons and to complete their official Royal Ranger certificate.  Parents can unwind with the soothing wellness treatments of the Reflections Spa, while a gym, yoga room and library are also available.  

Indulge in the contemporary cuisine of Waterside. Among the natural and remote landscape, enjoy lantern-lit romantic dinners. All dietary requirements are catered for to create a personalised dining experience.
