Lovely place. Enjoyed the separate bedroom/chalets so you can have a bit of alone time if you are in a large group. The kitchen is well equipped. Loved the outside showers. Plenty of animals walked passed the lodge. Excellent location. No other homes in site so you really feel like you are alone in the Bush.

The passing of animals next to or at our Lodge and I was very peaceful even my son didn't want to come back home.

Kanya is a piece of heaven. Away from the hustle and bustle. The property layout made for a very private and intimate experience with nature. Well appointed with daily housekeeping.

Our stay was awesome. The lodge had everything we needed, topped by breath taking views, especially the sunset by the beautiful landscape. We will definitely come back.

From the time we engaged with Chloe a few months ago, all bookings and arrangements where friendly and professional. The family from Australia and my immediate family had a great time. The lodge is fit for a king.
