Khaya Ndlovu Manor House was once the private dwelling of Trevor Jordan of Jordan Properties; a pioneer in game reserve development in South Africa. His claims to fame are Thornybush Private Game Reserve, Welgevonden, Raptures View, Ingwelala, Ntsiri to name but a few. He is unrelenting in his quest to expand conservation areas, having spearheaded the removal of the Kruger National Park western fence incorporating the private reserves to the west in the early 1990’s.
Trevor purchased the Manor House property in 2004; an old dilapidated hunting lodge stood on the exact foundations of the current Manor House construction. After spending a night or two with rain pouring through the thatch, Trevor decided it was time to repair the roof and after removing parts of it, the walls started crumbling. So what started out as a simple roof repair, turned into a total rebuild of the Manor House as you see it today!
