After the stresses of business I needed a total getaway... a place to hide and refresh. From the website Khaya Ndlovu looked like the right retreat. From the moment our vehicle entered the warm Lowveld atmosphere I started to relax. Upon arrival at the lodge our hosts greeted us like old friends. We were shown to our generous accomodation with beautiful views of the garden and surounding bushveld.
Supper proved to be a culinary delight with an african flavour. We ate like kings and then lolled in massive comfortable couches listening to night sounds on the stoep. The glowing embers, bush smells and cognac transported me into a state of blissfull tranquility.
I remained in this state for the rest of my stay (replacing the cognac with spring water during the day). We saw loads of excitting animal sightings on our game drives, and learnt much about everything from our learned guide.
I think of this trip as my Bush Alchemy as the Khaya Ndlovu charm transformed me from weary and discouraged to revitalised and inspired.
A TRULY SPECIAL PLACE which I highly recommend.
