About Khaya Romantica

Khaya Romantica is located in the beautiful, unspoiled Marloth Park Conservancy bordering the Southern Kruger National Park where animals still roam freely. In their search for a smaller luxury lodge, the owners of Khaya Umdani stumbled upon this very romantic house. They were instantly seduced by the privacy it has to offer.

Consisting of four very spacious bedrooms, each en-suite bedroom offers a full bathroom with a shower, bath, toilet and basin. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, lounge, upstairs TV lounge with DStv, outside lapa, a beautiful swimming pool to relax in and a balcony with views over the Kruger National Park and the Crocodile River in the distance. All linen is of a high standard, with 100% cotton white percale linen, soft white towels and swimming towels.

We invite you to come and experience a part of Africa with its abundance of wildlife. Situated only 25 km from the Malelane Gate and 15 km from the Crocodile Bridge Gate, this lodge the ideal base to discover the Kruger National Park, Swaziland, Mozambique and all of the other beauties of the surrounding areas.

Everything was very nice. Kitchen just needs a bigger freezer. Air-con in second bedroom.

Just wish it was longer! The house is amazing and the resident animals are fantastic. We'll definitely be back...

We had the most wonderful stay at Khaya Romantica. Our European guests enjoyed every minute. Thanks to Louise and her husband for all their help with directions - we easily found the place, also to Louis, for his friendly welcome. The house was beautifully decorated and everything clean. The swimming pool was a blessing after the long drive, even the outside fireplace was set! We also enjoyed the unexpected warthogs and "duiker" the next morning. Will definitely stay visit again.
