What a wonderful place to spend some time. Peaceful and very special! Would go back any time!! Enjoyed the chat around the breakfast table with the other guests.

Thanks Peter it was great!

Fantastic Stay
Sandra olivier, South Africa - 02 June 2015
I only had the pleasure to stay one night, but will have to return soon for more. This is probably one of the best kept secrets in Malelane! Absolutely wonderful stay, extremely helpful staff and best location ever.

Wow! What an awesome time. The lodge was immaculate! My sons really enjoyed the pool and seeing the animals come down to the river. I would definetly visit there again. Thank you for a lovely bush experience.

Exceeded our expectations

Exceeded our expectations in every way.

Absolutely incredible accommodation! The lodge is beautiful and clean with lovely gardens and verandas overlooking the park. We stayed for 3 nights and saw a leopard, rhino, elephants and buffalo from the garden!

This accomodation is absolutely incredible! Located directly on the Crocidile River and therefore you have a very big chance of seeing wildlife from your balcony, the swimming pool or braai-area. Springboks, rhinos, elephants and lizards have been spotted by us from our balcony! The rooms are very comfortable and clean and have a nice shower and a nice bath. The rest of the accomodation is also very, very nice. It's about 20 minutes driving from the Malelane Bridge and 5 minutes to supermarkets, restaurants etc. Go to Top Deck restaurant! Hope to be back in SA next year and then I'll definitely book this accommodation again! I can seriously recommend this location to everybody!
Khandizwe Lodge
janus szolkiewicz, South Africa - 15 July 2012
This was the best accomodation for the family we could wish for. Game viewing started the moment we arrived, elephants were around every day. The house was serviced by two people who were very helpful and polite. We will go back again.
Chris Van der Vyver, Canada - 12 January 2012
No complaints at all. Lovely place with plenty of space for our two families - each with two teenage kids, superb amenities and friendly service. Will visit again. Many thanks!

Anonymous, South Africa - 10 September 2009
It was brilliant! Khandizwe is absolutely stunning. The house and gardens are beautiful. We saw so much game while just lounging by the pool or sitting on the verandah and on our last morning we lay in bed and watched two rhino sleeping on the river bank - awesome!
Caroline Schenk, Netherlands - 27 October 2008
We can recommend this place to everybody. stunning view over the Olifants river and Kruger Park. From our doorstep we saw 4 of the big five!!! We do not have words to describe our stay over here. would definitely go again.

Very enjoyable
Henrik Jerkrot, Sweden - 24 February 2008
Very nice rooms and a perfect setting; the river and the view of the Kruger park. The staff was very helpful and pleasant.
24 elephants at the water's edge.
Sue Lewis, United Kingdom - 14 January 2008
We were given a very warm welcome by Lorette and staff and nothing was too much trouble. The views from the patio across the river were compelling and one breakfast time we counted 24 elephants at the water's edge. Trips for our family of 4 were organised, restaurants recommended and packed lunches provided for a day in the Kruger Park where, as a bonus, we were lucky enough to see the Big 5! We will return one day! Sue, Barry, Natalie and Christie Lewis.
Highlight of our vacation
Markus Engesser, Switzerland - 18 January 2007
A really fantastic place that we can recommend, friendly people and beautiful scenery. However not so easy to find. Signpostes along the road could help much.
Khandizwe River Lodge
Steven Johnson, United Kingdom - 10 February 2006
Khandizwe exceeded our expectations in all respects. We had a most wonderful few nights at the Lodge and although the weather was not too good, we enjoyed relaxing on the verandah whilst overlooking the river and Kruger park. Highly recommended!
Gerardo Silvan, Spain - 05 September 2005
I would like to thank Peter Jaehne and his staff for everything as we enjoy so much this 2 days.

Khandizwe River Lodge
Captivatingly set on the banks of the Crocodile River with breathtaking views of the adjoining Kruger National Park, Khandizwe's uncompromised standards of excellence and fine devotion to detail have earned this exceptional "exclusive use" destination a prestigious 5 Star grading.

Khandizwe offers four masterfully appointed en-suite bedrooms, each equipped with a fully stocked minibar, beverage tray, air-conditioning, overhead fan, hairdryer, bathrobe, and fine linen. With the emphasis on privacy, tranquility and seclusion, the lodge can only be booked as a complete unit, and as such every booking enjoys the sole and exclusive use of the entire lodge, including the use of our two housekeepers. Exclusive use bookings are not restricted to larger groups only - the lodge is available on this basis to any booking that comprises two or more guests, up to a maximum of eight.

Guests may elect to visit one of the many restaurants in the area, or may wish to self-cater in our modern, fully equipped kitchen. By prior arrangement, and at a small surcharge, breakfast will gladly be served on our terrace to the sights and sounds of the resident hippo family frolicking in the Crocodile River below the lodge. Our game viewing deck provides the ideal vantage point to observe the regular occurrence of elephant and buffalo feeding in the reeds in front of the lodge.

The Malelane Gate, the southern gateway into the Kruger National Park, is a mere five minutes away from Khandizwe. Guests may elect to self-drive into the Kruger via the Malelane Gate, or we can arrange specialised safari excursions in search of Africa’s Big 5. These open vehicle game excursions include either morning, afternoon or full day trips. We are also able to arrange bush walks and night drives inside the Kruger National Park.
