Open, thatched huts and wooden walkways in abundant national parkland make the Royal Malewane an African wildlife-spotting treat.

The air in South Africa is different. Where else smells like baked earth, wood smoke, sharp citrus, and brooding spices? Sitting in the gazebo of the Royal Malewane means letting these smells wash over you and attuning your senses to a new landscape.

A hotel in the Kruger National Park, the Royal Malewane is as close to nature as you can get. It's common for the savanna game to edge closer to the hotel, and sharp-eyed visitors frequently spot lions, giraffes, and buffalo. The open-air spa, pool, and restaurant make these encounters with wildlife plentiful, while stargazing is a dinnertime pursuit.

The Malewane's palatial, neoclassical air-conditioned suites offer a controlled retreat from extremes in temperature. Settle in Ralph Lauren linens on your canopied king-size bed after an exciting day of safari, hiking, and hot air ballooning.
