Splendor in the Bush - South Africa

My recent visit back to South Africa took me to a fantastic safari lodge: Royal Malewane.

Royal Malewane is a safari lodge fit for a princess. Indeed, it has been host to royalty from around the world since its opening.  This luxury lodge is located on a private game reserve adjacent to the greater Kruger National Park in South Africa. Game-viewing is excellent here and you will most likely be able to check the Big 5 (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Cape Buffalo and Rhinoceros) off your list in one day. I love the cats and was thrilled to have sightings of lions, leopards AND a cheetah during my stay.

Post game drive you can luxuriate in your plush suite. Persian carpets, fireplaces, private decks with plunge pools - the individual suites are magnificent and not what you generally picture when thinking of a stay "in the bush". The two-bedroom suites offer expansive living and dining areas, in addition to two completely separate and private bedroom areas with ensuite baths.

The safari spa is centered around a serene lap pool. They offer a myriad of specialty massages and body treatments to indulge in after a long morning game drive. Feeling energetic? You can burn off some calories in the well-equipped fitness center. You may want to do this after sampling the delicious cuisine served at Royal Malewane. It was really hard to pass up the warm chocolate pudding cake, so the thought of the gym made it all a guilt-free experience. OK, honestly, I never made it to the gym. 

Your experience at Royal Malewane safari lodge can be whatever you make it. The staff is extremely accommodating and I don't think that you will hear the word "no" here. For fantastic game-viewing and magnificent lodging, Royal Malewane provides an over-the-top luxury safari getaway.
