Join us on an educational tour of our ‘Poacher’s Garden’ followed by a short video clip which will explain the modus operandi of our Rhino Revolution Orphanage.

There are currently no orphaned rhinos in the orphanage, but you may be lucky enough to see some of our rehabilitated rhino calves wondering around our reserve. This tour is not open to the public and this opportunity is offered exclusively to Khaya Ndlovu Manor House guests. There is no set fee for this activity however a donation to the cause, for this unique experience is expected.

Game Drive on the Blue Canyon Conservancy

Home to four of the “Big 4” a game drive here is generally a private affair as the Blue Canyon Conservancy has only three commercial lodges traversing on the 14 000 hectares. This affords the guides the opportunity to venture off-road in search of those extraordinary sightings. Bush breakfasts or evening braai’s at the Leadwood deck or a secret hide can be organised by prior arrangement. Fee includes game drive, snacks and drinks.
