Khaya Ndlovu is situated in the Khaya Ndlovu Game Reserve, surrounded by nature, but only a stone’s throw away from Hoedspruit, the gateway to the greater Kruger, a wildlife haven of the Limpopo Province of South Africa. It offers a true home away from home experience, where you set the pace of your own holiday, working only to your relaxed deadlines.

The core of the property, the Manor House, is situated in the northern section of the reserve overlooking the splendour of the famous Blyde River Canyon, the third largest and undeniably most spectacular canyon in the world. The dining and pool deck, bar area as well as various lounges are at your disposal to use at your leisure. Festooned with a collection of original artworks, diverse in genre, complemented by an abundant assortment of Persian carpets dressing the floors, the Manor House exudes a luxurious and exotic ambiance.

The towering Drakensberg mountain range offers a majestic, panoramic view, which will leave you breathless as you step onto the Manor House’s alfresco dining terrace.

Guests will enjoy a truly authentic safari experience under the guidance of the property’s knowledgeable game guides. It’s not about racing from one sighting to another at the summons of a faceless, crackly voice on a radio, instead it’s about the guides intuitive instinct in locating and tracking down those exciting animals in their natural environment. White rhino and the fiercely guarded black rhino are amongst the big three that they can proudly show you, whilst rare and quirky wild dogs are a regular find. And of course; Gin and Tonics below a setting sun or a steaming Amarula hot-chocolate or coffee on a morning drive, are on the non-optional extras list!

The luxury, colonial style Hardwood Suites are situated within the Manor House and all have sweeping views of the tropical garden and external verandas, which can be directly accessed from the rooms. The resident garden monkeys provide much entertainment with their acrobatic displays amid the branches of the towering trees, sharing their glorious playground with a multitude of chattering bird species.

Both offer elegantly furnished, classic bedrooms housing an inviting king size bed, which may be split on request, plus access to the garden terrace.
