This lodge is the most incredible place to experience. It's the best of all worlds. Do you want to kick back and do absolutely nothing - and receive 5 star service? Then this is the place for you. The food is superb, the staff is amazing, and the facilities are breathtaking. Or perhaps you would like to safari, or explore the surrounding area, or even go on a walkabout? Then this is also the place for you. Most safaris have a very rigid schedule....you must be up by.....you must have breakfast by.....you must depart by.....you will return at..... Not so at the Khaya Ndlovu Manor House! I chose when and where to go, while relying heavily on the beautiful Renel and most incredibly efficient and accommodating Cindy. From the top down and from the bottom up, each and every detail is attended to. Seldom did I need to ask for anything. They pay attention to the smallest of details, and your wishes and desires simply materialize without ever having asked. Amazing. I am a female, solo traveler, and felt that I was visiting with long time friends. Joining other guests for breakfast and dinner was also very nice. They offer various packages, and whatever the charges, it's extremely reasonable. My first class experience began with Renel and Cindy personally picking me up from the nearby airport. They made themselves available at all times, they organized/scheduled/made transportation arrangements for whatever my hearts desires were for the day. No advance notice necessary. Unbelievably accommodating. Oh, did I mention the staff? Again, first class - 5 star service. Whether it's housekeeping, the cooks (fabulous!), Kendrick the guide, or George that takes such good care of all of us - they all work together flawlessly to cater to each and every need/desire that you have. Endearing, each and every one of them. I cannot rate this place high enough. Oh, and I must also highlight the three hour 'African Dream' massage that I experienced on the day of my arrival. Oh My Goodness! Imagine an excellent massage outdoors, overlooking a watering hole, while hearing the sounds of the bush surrounding and enveloping you. WOW! To all the beautiful and lovely people at this lodge that made my experience of a lifetime exceed my wildest dreams, I thank you ALL from the bottom of my heart. And for such an incredible experience. I pray that one day I can return :)
