The silent spaces of Africa precipitate an inner awakening. Exploration of these landscapes provoke conscious connection to the earth, its inhabitants and the self. Moments of quiet contemplation, soulful healing and restful introspection are truly possible here.

Africa has emerged as a destination of holistic endeavours, a continent where internal exploration is inspired by evocative landscapes that stretch euphorically, infinitely under a shimmering sky. From yoga retreats to health and wellness hideaways, Africa offers the ultimate escape from the madness of modern civilisation. Here, the only moment that exists is the present.

World-renowned for its beautiful setting and the sheer luxuriousness of its treatments, many of which make inspired use of indigenous ingredients. The spa at Royal Malewane is an oasis of a very special sort – a chance to refresh and restore mind, body and spirit amid the serenity and peace of the bush.

Luxury is about more than a beautiful retreat in an exotic location – it’s about the experience of being well taken care of that inspires a complete sense of wellbeing.

At the Marataba Safari Lodge there are many ways to relax outside of your tent including a communal pool, hammocks amongst the trees and a library with plush brown leather sofas; alternatively, book an in-room spa treatment on your deck and zone out to sounds of the birds and the breeze.
