Four of us traveled around South Africa in 20 days and stayed in 9 different locations (hotels, flats, lodges) and for me, Khandizwe River Lodge is the most amazing and unforgettable "home away from home" for its location, cleanliness, amenities and distance to the Kruger National Park. We had the Lodge by ourselves and the pool was refreshing after a...

It is the perfect location. Game viewing from the comfort of your room, patio or next to the swimming pool. Lots of elephants that came right next to the fence. The lodge is beautiful with great spaces to relax and enjoy the tranquility. It is clean and well equipped. One thing to note is that they do not prepare the...

I can't say enough good things about Khandizwe River Lodge and its owner Peter. Firstly, Peter was so gracious and helpful. Not only did he helped us book our safaris, but he was a wealth of information for things such as which restaurants we could go to etc. As for the accommodations, the lodge was truly amazing! Situated right on...

We arrived at the Lodge after a long day of travelling to be welcomed by a temperature over 42dC at 4pm!! But a swim in the pool and cold drink from the "honesty bar" stocked fridge soon cooled us down. We were fortunate to have the Lodge to ourselves and made ourselves at home. The game viewing from the poolside...

The only disappointment we had during our stay was that it was only 2 nights! Rose was amazing, the property was gorgeous, and the lodge itself was so comfortable, decorated beautifully and the views were breathtaking. Upon arriving we saw a huge croc sunning himself along the river and that night while eating dinner on the patio we saw a...

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...

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
