The Lodge

The child friendly Khaya Ndlovu Manor House is situated in the Rietspruit Big 4 Game Reserve, surrounded by nature, yet a stone’s throw away from Hoedspruit, gateway to the Greater Kruger area - wildlife haven of the Limpopo Province, South Africa.

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 Ndlovu.

Kick off your shoes, put your feet up and let us do the rest. 


The core of our establishment, the Khaya Ndlovu 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, Khaya Ndlovu Manor House exudes a luxurious and exotic ambiance.

We offer you a stay on a bed and breakfast basis, but also offer lunches. For dinner we can advise you on many fine restaurants that are just a 7 minute drive away. On Wednesday and Saturday night we can accommodate a braai for a minimum of four guests.
