Nestled in the heart of South Africa’s unspoilt Easten Cape province lies Kwandwe Private Game Rserve, a world-class Big Five safari destination. The 22 000 hectares of pristine private wilderness stretches either side of the Great Fish river which meanders for 30km through scenic landscapes and comprises just twenty-six rooms split across five very individual and distinct safari lodges and villas.
Renowned for our quality guiding, understated luxury and the thousands of animals and wildlife that call the reserve home, Kwandwe Private Game Reserve offers a range of safari activities and accommodation options to make every African Dream come true.
With only 6 lodges, of which 3 are dedicated to families, the lodge is intimate, relaxed and trendy, with décor inspired by the vibrant colours and textures of the African people. Included are expansive wooden decks, an open interactive kitchen and a rim-flow lap pool. Super-King sized beds, large bathrooms with free-standing baths and separate lounge areas feature funky bean bags. Family suites can accommodate 2 adults + 2 children (on day beds in the lounge) and include a private vehicle and ranger.
