My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon, and had a wonderful time. The room, lodge deck, bar and food were all amazing, and the staff were incredibly helpful. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable about the game animals on the property & were happy to show us other sights of the region too, such as the Kruger Park and... More

We met friends and family here for lunch. What a gem of a place; we would have loved to stay here. The staff who greeted us gave a tour of the luxurious guest rooms, dining area, and sitting rooms. We were primarily in a covered, open air dining area just off the outdoor deck and infinity pool. While we were... More

Stylish Lodge , super setting with the sunset over the Drakensberge. The private safari trips were great. We did see some of the Cheetahs but unfortunately not any lions even though the ranger and trakers put a lot of effort in . Everything was great except the food didn´t stand for 4 stars.

Lodge - stunning in every way, just what we were hoping for Service - outstanding service from staff, friendly, helpful, always cheerful, made the stay more enjoyable Rooms - Honeymoon Suite - suggest an air conditioner is installed, not unpleasant with the fans but an air con would help Food - excellent food and presentation

Most people are focussed on the Kruger side of the R40 to look for game parks and accommodation, but I can highly recommend this beautiful lodge, hidden in the Blue Canyon Conservancy on the other side of the R40, close to Hoedspruit. We had a warm welcome by George, the butler and the other members of the staff. We had... More

We were spoilt from the minute we arrived until we left. We will certainly only go to Khaya Ndlovu in the future should we be in the Hoedspruit area. The rooms were clean and the service was great. There is nothing that I did not like. We had very special treatment from Butler George.

We stayed only one night at Khaya Ndlovu but were treated wonderfully by the staff, hosts and guides. Great ambience with a terrific view overlooking the pool, the pond with game visiting and the lowveld in the background. The dinner was exquisite with desert that was memorable. We would stay again next time in Hoedspruit.
