We only stayed one night on our way to Kruger but the accomodation and service was excellent. Seeing wildlife visit the watering hole in the grounds was a great introduction to the local wildlife. We would definitely return.

We have spent 2 days in Khaya Ndlovu in July 2016. It is a lovely house with a beautiful garden. The rooms are not very spacious but very comfortable and very clean. The whole management team and the owner of the house is very friendly and helpful.
