About Khaya Ndlovu

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!

The Reserve

The Khaya Ndlovu Game Reserve is a well-protected 1400 hectare sanctuary offering a safe-haven for its resident black rhino.  A bumble through the reserve in our luxurious game-viewer in search of these endangered browsers takes you to our greater traverse area on the BLAR Conservancy. This includes a drive on the prestigious Leadwood Big Game Estate, which apart from a fantastic game offering also presents some of the most spectacular mountain vistas in the country.
Trevor Jordan was instrumental in bringing big game onto the borders of the town of Hoedspruit, with the result that the presence and natural wonder of the animals draw over 500 000 visitors to the area annually. Not only does the conservancy have wild dog that regularly come hunting, but we also have cheetah who have flourished in this rich and diverse area. Hyenas are also prolific and can be seen as well as heard calling after dark.
