Experience luxury living in the wild!

Welcome to Nkanyi House!

Conveniently situated in the heart of South Africa’s wildlife region, Nkanyi House is the perfect base for you to enjoy your dream vacation. The world-famous Kruger National Park is only a forty minute drive away and the Blyde River Canyon, just one hour. Numerous other tourist and wildlife activities are nearby. Located on a secure private wildlife estate, the house has the benefit of offering privacy and nature, while being just a few minutes’ drive from shopping and dining in the town of Hoedspruit. You’ll love the abundant outdoor space including large covered deck, private pool and boma (fire pit). With room for six and plenty of space for gathering, the home provides the ideal opportunity for you to connect with nature and each other.

Imagine returning from a day of viewing some of South Africa’s incredible wildlife, hot but exhilarated. You rinse the dust off in the outdoor shower, before jumping into the private pool to finish cooling off. As the sun sets, you swap stories of the day’s adventures over drinks on the deck, while the aroma of dinner grilling over charcoal fills the air. Does this sound like the vacation you are looking for?

Now all you need to do is book your vacation at Nkanyi House. 

What is a Nkanyi?

We named the house for the marula trees that grow on the property. Nkanyi is the word for marula tree in Tsonga, one of the indigenous languages of the Hoedspruit area. The tree, known by its scientific name as Scelrocara birrea is a deciduous, fruit tree that can grow up to 18m high. It has been a source of food for local inhabitants for thousands of years.
