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.

I visited Khandizwe River Lodge as part of my Trip of a Lifetime 2014 with my 23 year old daughter and a friend. 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

We were 2 couples staying for 3 nights. We read a lot of reviews about Khandizwe and were intrigued. It doesnt happen often that the place performed better than what the reviews stated. We had an absolutely great time and were treated with a herd of Elephants coming to chat with us during our sundowner drinks. Overall, we had a... More

We spent a couple of nights and one full day relaxing in the garden on the river bank. Saw more game and birds than the long drive through the park. Absolutely fantastic. Will certainly repeat the experience at the first opportunity.

We stayed at Khandizwe for 4 nights and had the lodge exclusively for ourselves. With elephants and hippos playing in the river every day and elephants regularly visiting us right up to the edge of the lodge, I wish we could have stayed longer. The lodge owner was extremely helpful with restaurant bookings and park details. The room was lovely... More
