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.
