I was completely blown away by this lodge. The staff was friendly and consistently went above and beyond what was expected. The natural beauty of the lodge was stunning, but the lodge itself is decorated wonderfully, and majestic. We stayed in one of the private suites, which comes equipped with a personal butler and chef. The chef's food was incredible and completely flexible when it came to our tastes. The food was fresh and diverse even though we were in the middle of the bush. The ranger and tracker that we had for our game drives were so knowledgable and interesting. Plus, we saw the big five within the first 24 hours of our stay! During the three days we spent at Royal Malewane we saw a cheetah everyday, and saw a leopard on the drive from the airport to the lodge. Royal Malewane also has an excellent spa available. Honestly, I've travelled to some pretty amazing places, but this was truly a once in a life time experience. The staff manages to make you feel like family, the lodge is high end without being stuck up, and the exposure to wild life is unparalleled. If you're going to South Africa, Royal Malewane needs to be on your life.
