Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Quite an oasis with a great atmosphere and superb food. The waiters are always most helpful. Try a game drive before dinner and the have a very delicious 4 course dinner. One of the best restaurants in Hoedspruit area.

Everyone at Khaya Ndluvu were very friendly, and very professional. From the moment of arrival to departure. The game drive was exciting, as we got to see a pride of male lions lying around. We got very close to the animals, and our guide was...excellent at explaining about the nature, the animals and about anything else we asked about. The food was great, so the whole experience will definitely bring us back again and again. Thank you Khaya Ndluvu☀️More

We went to Khaya Ndlovu after a friend told us to go there. It was amazing: food is superb, service very friendly, hospitality outstanding. The staff makes you feel special and appreciated. De sunset you get is out of this world. There is a waterhole...nearby and we had Giraffe and Rhino visiting. We went twice... Hope to return soon.More

Best sunset views in the lowveld! Khaya is absolutely our favourite little gem to go too, whether it’s for a day of spa spoils and bubbles ended with an exquisite dinner under the canopy lit with faerie lights or simply for a sundowner - the...setting and team will make it unforgettable! The Khaya family makes you feel completely at home and magically transported away all at the same time. You simply cannot visit Hoedspruit without visiting Khaya it’s a must on the bucket list!More

The manor house is a very elegant and beautifully decorated venue. The views from the deck are postcard perfect. The menu we selected in discussions with the chef was excellent. Had a wonderful evening.

My husband and I came there for lunch on Saturday, 21 March and received the WORST service from one of your waitresses/ mangers. She’s a short, white, blonde lady who was dressed in all back and made it seem like she was doing us a...favour by serving us. Something as simple as wanting a sweet virgin mojito was turned into “well we already have a pre-made mixture that is already sweet so I don’t know how I can make it sweeter”. My husband explained we would pay more for it so she sulks and takes it back then beings the SAME drink. She then didn’t bother to say bye when we left or acknowledging us...DISGUSTING!!! Absolutely shocking considering we were reviewing your hotel. I’ll make sure to post this on my social media platforms.More

This experience was one the very best we had during our 14 day stay at Hoedspruit. We booked as dayvisitors an afternoon gamedrive including dinner at Khaya Ndlovu. The booking was very easy via phonecall and the service person did a great job. When we...arrived we were overwhelmed by the atmosphere, the setting, the surroundings and the amazing service. The terrace is so lovely and has an amazing view on the mountains and the waterwhole just in front the Manor House. We were asked which kind of drinks we like to have for our game drive and then started. Our guides were great! They stayed longer in the bush just for us giving unforgettable memories like sightings of 4 rhinos,two roaring lions in the twilight and a picnic in the dark. Returning at the Manor house we had a fantastic 4-course meal and all special wishes of our children have been fulfilled. Vegetarian food for our daughter and a chicken burger for the youngest. Absolutely recommendable and we will definitely return.More

I can't thank you enough for working with Jacquie Gauthier and creating such a magical day. I loved the surprise outdoor massage, the lunch and dinner and most of all the best proposal ever.
