Khaya Ndlovu Manor House offers five double en-suite rooms, and is located outside the small Lowveld town of Hoedspruit. We are situated on the breathtaking 15000-hectare Blue Canyon Conservancy boasting four species of the Big 5.
The Hoedspruit area is characterized by the abundance of Big 5 game viewing opportunities and game reserves with pristine natural surroundings along the western boundary of the Kruger National Park. Even while indoors, one is constantly reminded of, and greeted by, magnificent natural scenes, be it either the well established colonial-style gardens or the northern reaches of the Drakensberg Mountains. The promise of relief from the Lowveld heat and humidity is materialized in the cool depths of the swimming pool, which overlooks an often frequented waterhole amidst indigenous trees and shrubbery. A sundowner has never tasted quite as good as it does on the pool deck overlooking the scene below.
Activities include hot air ballooning, microlight and helicopter flights, Big 5 game drives, game walks and birding in Thornybush Nature Reserve. Also accessible are horseback riding excursions, day trips to the Kruger National Park, white water tubing, -rafting and -kayaking, the Panorama Route, the Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Project, the Hoedspruit Endangered Species Centre, elephant back safaris, and amazing in-house spa treatments. For an intimate, yet ultimately stylish bush wedding in the lap of luxury, Khaya Ndlovu Manor House offers the perfect setting. The stylishly decorated manor house offers a wealth of interior scenes to satisfy all photographic requirements. The outside area offers more photographic opportunities ranging from formal landscaped garden shots to African backdrops with the Drakensberg Mountains as focal point. Khaya Ndlovu Manor House offers a full wedding package that includes wedding planning, securing competent, local service providers for the event and ensuring a romantic setting for the wedding night.
With a mix of traditional South African food and contemporary cooking, fine dining is guaranteed at Khaya Ndlovu Manor House. Your chef, Charles Mandebvu, is a seasoned expert in the art of making good food great. Charles was originally trained as a pastry chef but branched out into overall cheffing as the need for diversification arose in his Zimbabwean homeland. Charles most enjoys preparing a la carte dishes, as it satisfies his creative need to put something truly special on every plate. Charles also boasts a large repertoire of vegetarian dishes to meet even the most challenging requests. Accordingly, this soft spoken culinary artist prefers working with fresh produce rather than frozen food stuffs as 'the flavours are just so much better'.
Khaya Ndlovu Manor House is a luxury establishment that places emphasis on exposing families to the African bush experience.
