HOEDSPRUIT - For true Lowveld relaxation you need to go no further than Khaya Ndlovu Manor House, situated in the pristine 15 000ha Blue Canyon Conservancy a mere 7km from Hoedspruit on the R40 towards Klaserie.
What gives Khaya Ndlovu the edge over the myriad of other Lowveld accommodation establishments here in Big 5 country, is that you are the boss of your own entertainment schedule. At this 5 bedroom colonial style manor house, there is no such thing as a wake-up call for a compulsory twice daily game drive that hikes up the price of your stay. No, the focus is on utter relaxation with you deciding what activities you want to do when.
To start the relaxation process, the outdoor area offers the ideal opportunity. Even while indoors, you are greeted by magnificent natural scenes be it either the well established colonial style gardens or the Northern reaches of the Drakensberg Mountain range. The promise of relief from the Lowveld heat and humidity is materialised in the cool depths of the swimming pool overlooking the water hole visited by various bird and game species in the savanna setting. A sundowner has never tasted quite as good as it does on the pool deck overlooking the Lowveld scene below!
Activities ranging from Big 5 game drives in the nearby Thornybush Game Reserve to micro light flights and in-house spa treatments can be arranged upon request to suit your needs
