Lwandile Mfana Inv grew from strength to strength with 6 to 20 en-suite rooms including site 263 and site 264. We now have 2 conference venues, 2 kitchens, a laundry, swimming pool, and a spacious reception.
Xisaka means nest and we are based in Kremertart, Giyani which provides the perfect base from which to explore this under-birded area.
These 20 en-suite rooms, named after the Birds in Xi-Tsonga, pay homage to the rustic elegance and harmony of the ancient Xi- Tsonga villages. These 20 en-suite rooms are furnished in a style that draws inspiration from pure regional tradition. Tsonga women décor in the rooms explains it all. The guest house village is set in green surroundings which affords a spectacular view of the gardens that provides fruit picking directly from their source.

In Room Facilities:

We boast of suites located on the bird sanctuary. (Greater Limpopo birding route) Tastefully decorated, the suites exude the warmth and natural colours and textures of the African Continent. Bird photographs and Birdlife SA books will absorb the guest into the diversity of South African culture.
Enjoy the plenty space, blackout curtains and comfy beds in every guest room including DStv, bar fridge, coffee/tea making facilities and individual air-condition control.

Area Information:

More or less 550 kilometres north east of Johannesburg you will find the little happening town of Giyani, a popular town in the heart of Bushveld country in the western crook of the Kruger National Park, even if it is a further 200 kilometres or so to reach the Phalaborwa Gate. It is hot here, reaching 36 degrees in summer and managing to remain at around 22 degrees during winter - sublime if you want to escape cold, wet winters elsewhere in the country.
Giyani is made up of around 200 villages, and predominated by a group of people who speak mainly Xitsonga, give or take the handful of white, mainly Afrikaans speaking people who tend to live around Kremetart, next to Mongope. This is farming country and fields of mielies peanuts, tomatoes, bananas and cattle farming predominate, whilst the staple diet, unsurprisingly, is maize meal.
There is also a big Spar in town where you can stock up on essentials if need be, and it is said that the country's first practicing black pharmacist set up shop here during the years of apartheid.
Because of where Giyani finds itself geographically, it is a fairly popular town to visit en route to the Kruger National Park. Even the local golf course stocks resident game such as zebra, giraffe, some antelope and a prolific bird life.
Just outside town you will find the Manomba Nature Reserve and the Nsami Dam, both peaceful and pretty locations at which to chill, whilst enjoying the occasional baobab tree interspersed by the requisite Mopane in the Lowveld countryside.
