Welcome to Khaya Ndlovu

Khaya Ndlovu is situated in the Khaya Ndlovu Game Reserve, surrounded by nature, yet a stone’s throw away from Hoedspruit, gateway to the greater Kruger - wildlife haven of the Limpopo Province, South Africa.
Khaya directly translates to 'home' or 'haven' in the isiZulu language, one of South Africa’s eleven official languages. It could not be more appropriate for what we represent. We offer a true home away from home experience, where you set the pace of your own holiday, working only to a time-lapse deadline!

The core of our establishment, the Manor House is situated in the northern section of the reserve overlooking the splendour of the famous Blyde River Canyon, the third largest and undeniably most spectacular canyon in the world. The dining and pool deck, bar area as well as various lounges are at your disposal to use at leisure and we would like nothing more than for you to feel right at home, as you enjoy our tastefully furnished home. Festooned with a collection of original artwork, diverse in genre, complemented by an abundant assortment of Persian carpets dressing the floors, the Manor House exudes a luxurious and exotic ambiance.

The towering Drakensberg mountain range offers a majestic, panoramic view, which will leave you breathless as you step onto the Manor House’s alfresco dining terrace. 

Our luxury, colonial-style Hardwood Suites are situated within the Manor House; all have sweeping views of our tropical garden and external verandas, which can be accessed from the rooms. The resident garden monkeys provide much entertainment with their acrobatic displays amid the branches of the towering trees, sharing their glorious playground with a multitude of chattering bird species.

A short walk from the Manor House, you will find our spacious Garden Suites. Whether you are looking for a safari destination; a base to explore all the wonders of the Lowveld, a romantic break away with your loved one, a family vacation or even if you just want to pop in for lunch, spa treatment or game drive – we really do offer it all. We are also an ideal wedding venue having historically hosted many happy couples who have said their vows at Khaya. Kick off your shoes, put your feet up and let us do the rest. 
  • Accommodation

    Offering a variety of rooms to accommodate any African safari traveller. The Leadwood Honeymoon suite is perfect for the romantic couple looking for a luxurious option or travellers that enjoy the finer things in life. The Acacia Family Suite is suitable for a family of 4 or a group of 4 adults who don't mind sharing a bathroom. There are 2 other suites inside the Manor House. There are also garden units available which offers incredible spacious options for any traveller needing to get away from it all.

  • Activities

    We offer a truly authentic safari experience under the guidance of our knowledgeable guides. It’s not about racing from one sighting to another at the summons of a faceless, crackly voice on a radio! It’s about their intuitive instinct in locating and tracking down those exciting animals – both big and small in their natural environment. White rhino and our fiercely guarded black rhino are amongst the big four that we can proudly show you, whilst rare and quirky wild dogs are a regular find. Oh and of course; Gin and Tonics below a setting sun are on the non-optional extras list! … Substitute that for steaming Amarula hot-chocolate or coffee, on a morning drive and your day is sure to be made!

  • Kitchen

    With Chef Garth and Chef Princess at the helm of our country kitchen, your taste buds are in store for a treat. From never-ending breakfasts, light and lazy lunches and delectable 4 course dinners you certainly will not go hungry during your stay with us. We also cater for private functions and events, and offer outside guests the opportunity to join us for breakfast, lunches and dinners, as well as high tea.
