Reviewed August 25, 2013

We had a great time (2 nights) at Kahndizwe Lodge for many reasons :
- superb and well decorated, well maintained house, with comfort and luxurious nature
- stunning wiews on kruger park (and animals)on the other side of the river right underneath our feet
- restaurants (deck) and facilities very close (spar etc)
and very helpful Peter : a great thanks !

Altogether : magic and very relaxing
We will be back for a longer stay

My husband and I spent a few days at Khandizawe River Lodge after our wedding with his family who were out from the UK. We all loved the place - it was great for our family and allowed us flexiblity to do what we wanted. The staff were friendly and attentive. We asked for extra beds in the rooms for young children and everyone was happy to accomodate our request. it is well placed for shops in Malelane to do shopping and the braai lapa is great for long evenings around the fire. The day we did not go into the Kruger we saw elephant, rhino, giraffe, hippo, baboon, impala and crocodile all from the comfort of the veranda. It was a wonderful place and we will happily recommend it.

We where six guys on golf tour. I booked on the internet not knowing anything about Khandizwe. Peter handled the booking superbly and we arived late that knight. When we walked thru the door all of us was struck with the layout and superb rooms, braai area, pool and the view of the kruger park and the river. And then we heard lion and heyina calls. This place is by far the best value for money i have come acros. Khandizwe river lodge does not stand back for any luxury lodges in the Kruger park. We are going back there forsure.

It was my second booking and Khandizwe River Lodge and it sure won't be my last. 5 Star self catering guest house accommodation with the most amazing sights and sounds. The Guest House is extremely comfortable a great home away from home with all the necessary modcons. The rooms and bathrooms are extremely comfortable and the spacious living area both inside and outside are magnificent. The staff are very friendly and compliment the already positive experience. As a certain Mr Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I WILL BE BACK!!!" Thanks Peter. TOBY

khandizwe is certainly the most beautiful accommodation I have stayed in. Right now I could be glazing through the open sky and sunshine to see the hippopotamus, elephants and many other wild animals strolling for grazing and drinking water in the river. This place has channged my view of relaxation, holiday combined with nature, fun and privacy all at the same time and space. Let your imagination of a perfect holiday and accommodation wildly lead you to Khandizwe. Regards Macks

What a fantactic find, our first trip , but the family will be back for more. Fantastic setting, superb accommodation and great staff. Your in, "Out of Africa", sitting on a patio, sipping long cool drinks, While watching elephants with baby's, and hippo's, walk the river, nearly within touching reach. Wildlife abundant, what to see first.

Just amazing,
Thanks Peter

Room Tip: Grab the front bedroom, wake up to river views, with sunrays playing on the water.

This lodge offers great accommodation in a beautiful setting that was unrivalled by anywhere else we stayed in South Africa. Travelling with my extended family the large rooms, all with on suites, ensure we all had our own privacy.

The stay was made memorable by having elephant grazing at the back fence of the property. This is a treat that I’m sure we wouldn’t have experienced in a game lodge.
