Why we love Khulu’s Retreat!

Incredible location overlooking a stunning watering hole. This is a luxury house, perfect for a family or couples wanting a more private experience. We had incredible wildlife sightings including lion chasing buffalo right in front of camp, The guiding was brilliant, the vehicles all new and the rooms are a good blend of luxury and bush. A wonderful spot.
