Because you deserve the best


eKhaya Bush Villa is the epitome of understated luxury, with echoes of that bygone era when the journey (or “safari” in the Swahili vernacular) was as important as the destination… The blend of colonial and traditional African styles has inspired a wonderfully interwoven decor palette which offsets the beautiful scenery around the villa.

We were surprised to see a villa of six bed rooms as we had thought it was a big hotel. We were welcomed by Mike and his staff with orange juice preparation. The ground floor rooms are big and has v good view. Two bedrooms on upper floor are also spacious. All the bathrooms are large and have tub in them. Mike is excellent host taking care of smallest of our requirement. We were vegetarians and he arranged for our food with an Indian lady. The food was prepared as per our choice. The chef Regina is too good with preparations of food. Staying here was like staying at home with all the facilities. We really enjoyed our stay here.
"excellent stay"
eKhaya was a wonderful experience! The owner, Mike, is such a nice host. For our honeymoon he'd given us the top suite and a romantic diner on the balcony upon arrival. The ladies who work there are very sweet and genuinly make your stay worthwhile! I just had to speak of a South-Afrikan dish, Boboti, and she had prepared it for dinner the same evening!!! eKhaya is a modern, well designed and luxurious villa worth visiting!
"Lovely stay at Hoedspruit"
We stayed for 3 night with eKhaya bush Villa. The room is fantastic, clean, big, stylish and has a big comfortable bed. The common area is nice to chill in, again stylish and quiet. eKhaya means home and the staff made us feel like home. We did a safari and got our breakfast to go in a 'lunchbox' because we departed at 0500 am. When we opened it, everybody else in the fan was jealous at our lunchbox. Also Mike the owner helps us with activities and where to go (and not to go) and made us feel very welcome. The kitchen is good. Very nice breakfast and 3 course dinner. The chef is really good! If you want to stay in Hoedspruit come to eKhaya. You will enjoy your stay!
"Excellent accommodation and outstanding hosts!"
We had a great stay. Beautiful room with very stylish bathroom. Very nice atmosphere. Brilliant breakfast with super nice staff. Nice outside area - perfect to dine and spend evenings with a beautiful small swimming pool. We will be definitely back.
"An amazing place with wonderful host"
I stayed here about a week ago with my boyfriend. I was lucky to stumble upon eKhaya online and the decor caught my eye. This place is exactly like the photos. Everything is spotless, the villa is brand new and there are plenty of common areas to lounge in. The pool looked really nice although it was a little cold when we were there so the fire pit was a little more inviting. Our room was big with a large soaking tub and separate shower. Decor aside, it's really the people who make this a great place to stay. Mike was the host and when we arrived he came out to greet us with Regina and they gave us a delicious homemade orangina drink. From there they were unbelievably accommodating in every way from printing our boarding passes to even doing some laundry for my boyfriend, they truly made us feel welcome and at home... ...except, the food that Regina cooks is much much better than at home! If you stay here you must eat dinner at the villa. They made an authentic Braai (BBQ) and it was so delicious. Breakfast was also included and you can order a variety of items. The omelet I ordered was one of the best I've ever had. The day that we went on a safari, they packed us the biggest lunch I've ever seen because we missed the complementary breakfast, it was unexpected and very thoughtful of them. I kid you not, when we left I got choked up because I didn't want to leave. This was after 2 days! S Africa is quite a trip from the States but I'm hoping to come back sometime soon. In the meantime, I'll recommend this location to anyone who asks. Do yourself a favor and book eKhaya.
"Best stay in a long long time"

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at eKhaya! Mike was a wonderful host, very accommodating and so helpful, and the rest of the staff were amazing. The food was incredible and the Villa was beautifully decorated, set in the bush we saw many animals and it was a great and relaxing environment. It was also a short drive to the Orpen Kruger National Park Gate. We will definitely be coming back!
