The Royal

The Royal Portfolio began in 1999 when Phil and Liz Biden decided to convert their holiday home in the African bush into what is now Royal Malewane. As a family they were privileged to enjoy wonderful holidays there with so many happy memories and they wanted to share those lovely experiences with others, creating a collection of properties which showcase the very best South African travel experiences.

Situated in South Africa’s most spectacular destinations, The Royal Portfolio offers unrivaled accommodation experiences.

Mary Jean's Thoughts

Located in South Africa, in the most picturesque of settings and the most magnificent accommodation is Royal Malewane. Whoever thinks a safari is “roughing it” needs to come here.  Their rooms are all air conditioned and all have lounge pools. The full Spa is of a quality that no one else offers anywhere on safari and even includes a hair salon. The stunning decor, incredible ambience, dining options and an extensive wine list must be experienced to be believed. And of course, great wildlife with Guides who absolutely excel at what they do ensuring you to have the best safari experience possible. Simply one of the best!
