Khandizwe is a tranquil paradise set on the banks of the Crocodile River, overlooking the Kruger National Park. Minutes from the new shopping centre in Malalane, it offers a perfect base for Kruger trips, with the Malalane Gate just ten kilometres away if you are going into the park. Game viewing from the gorgeous garden and terraces is excellent, and... More

Fantastic building, comfortable, spacious and well appointed. Stunning view over a beautiful garden to the river bank, accross the river and into the park. We were regularly visited by elephants, hippo, buck and other animals who wandered onto the river bank. Our only regret was not making this

We stayed here for the first week in August as a party of six and loved every minute of it. The owner, Peter, couldn't have been more helpful and made our stay most enjoyable by recommending game drives and organising bookings in response to our questions in advance. This meant that we arrived with everything organised and had time to... More

Beautiful setting, excellent overnight stay/weekend away. Friendly housekeeper. Safe. Very neat, stylish decorated which gives you a lovely sense of tranquility. Absolutely stunning! A must to stay! Being situated on the banks of the Crocodile river you have the most beautiful views of game coming down to the river.

On the river across from Kruger National Park. A BEAUTIFUL house and great owner. Everything excellent including the elephants walking on the other side of the river. It was fabulous. Every bedroom was a treat and the outside porch was a great place to hang out and see the views.

The purpose of this part of the trip was to see the Kruger and the Lodge was the nearest of its kind. We were completely unprepared by the photos on the website as to how spacious and... More

A home from home, fantastic house right on Crocodile River, could not have asked for a better location. Easy to get to the local shops and to Kruger Park. The facilities are excellent, huge garden and pool. Covered braii area with seating and a terrace to sit out on. Breakfast served by two lovely house keepers is a nice touch... More
