A Private Exclusive-Use House in Matobo Hills

Situated in the heart of the Matobo Hills, just outside the boundary of the national park, lies Khayelitshe House. Enclosed by the iconic balancing rocks and surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of massive boulders, Khayelitshe House got its name from the Ndebele words ‘Ekhaya’ and ‘Litshe’- Home in the Rocks. Khayelitshe House’s charm comes from its simplicity and organic blueprint. Drawing inspiration from travels throughout Africa, the eclectic design brings both tranquillity and energy. This is a home that is completely off-the-grid, one that inspires peacefulness and being at one with nature.

The environmentally friendly design blends in perfectly with the ancient and majestic landscape that surrounds the property. Fully serviced and consisting of 4 en-suite bedrooms with incredible views from every window, the house inspires a feeling of remoteness that is hard to capture. The private land around Khayelitshe House covers over 1200 acres of breath-taking wilderness, making it a beautiful escape from the grind of daily life.
