Khaya Ndlovu is a beautiful manor house set in a large garden with a great view of the watering hole. Khaya Ndlovu means "House of Elephant", sadly they do not have any elephants in the reserve (they used to have them), they have 3 of the big five (Lions, Leopards, and rhinos). The chef and staff were very attentive and we had really good meals in a peaceful setting that felt very luxurious.
When we arrived we were informed that we were not allowed to do any game drives with our own vehicle, we could only go on the organized game drives. (This is not stated anywhere on their websites) We were hoping to do a mixture of both. Because we were the only guests in the lodge, we were also expected to pay a private drive fee of 880,- per person. Because we were shocked by this, they made a concession for us and we paid the group fee, which we were grateful for. The games drives were excellent, though, they drive you offroad to get right to the animals, we saw lions feed from close by, which was a first for me!
It was an amazing experience to stay at Khaya Ndlovu, everything was excellent. They offered different activities and did everything they could in order to make our stay unforgettable. If you are looking for a great and luxurious place to stay, this has to be your choice
the rooms are a bit outdated - they are up for renovation! The bathroom in the room very dark and small
Everything was spectacular - the food was healthy and warm and gave you a couple of options. The service is great and much attention to detail with everything drinks, food, and service. The decor is beautiful.
That we didnt stay longer and have a swim in the pool.
It is excellently located within a 2 minute drive from the town of Hoedspruit. We had the Leadwood Suite; very comfortable, spacious and has a view of an immense tree just outside the garden doors. Despite its luxurious feel it’s a good value for money. Staff very friendly and helpful!
