We had spent one night last year on our South African visit and loved Khaya Ndlovu so much that we decided to spend five nights there this year. We were not disappointed by our decision. Khaya Ndlovu is such a special place. Beautiful setting, beautiful manor house, friendly owner and wonderful staff...what more could one ask for? We took advantage... More

Our first visit to South Africa started at the Khaya Ndlovu Manor House. It is an excellent place with nice and friendly people operating the exclusive property. During the evening dinner we meet interesting South African people due to the fact that the Khaya is also being booked by local business people. In general the location is much better than... More

The setting, the staff and the atmosphere of the Manor House is fabulous. You immediately feel part of the house and everything from the rooms to the lounge and dining areas is stylish and wonderfully appointed. The "long table" dinners reinforce the relaxed house party feel that suits the manor so well. The game viewing is a little tricky with... More

We have been to many private luxury game lodges and Khaya Ndlovu is definitely up there with the best of them. The service, atmosphere, views and quality of accommodation is second to none. This really does feel like a home away from home and we will definitely return. Don't hesitate to book if you are in the area. Rondol and... More

Expedia did not advertise well. Said , free breakfast, free wif, etc. this manor house is on a private game reserve.. Luxury , in every way. Great manicured grounds. One eyed bush buck greets you at breakfast. Great common rooms.

Congratulations Ronel on the attitude of your staff. Their cheerful and thoughtful approach to everything, made my stay an absolute pleasure. The unique, if slightly spoilt Jordie, (your pet bushbuck) added a most memorable aspect to my visit.

My goal was to find a venue that cared more about my needs than their agenda, program and routines. Khaya Ndlovu provided this beyond my expectation. I wanted peaceful and pampered and that's what I got. The room was wonderfully generous, clean and comfortable. The food was delicious yet wholesome. The staff were discreet yet visible and managed to predict... More

Great place, love the dining arrangement. It allows you to meet people. The house, the gardens and the views are amazing. Khaya Ndlovu allows you to chill if you need some rest or to catch up with books.

Where to begin? First of all, at the airport, we met Chris Martin who would become our guide for the rest of our stay. Being a Professional Wildlife Photographer he is one of the best guides we've ever met. He knew everything from South African Politics to information about the smallest of the animals. He is very dedicated into making... More
