Kwandwe offers unique treatments inspired by, designed and based on Africa’s rich heritage. Relax and rejuvenate during your safari with treatments ranging from manicures, pedicures, reflexology and full body massage in the privacy of your suite.
Explore the natural splendour of Kwandwe on early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle or experience the thrill of tracking big game (white rhino, black rhino, elephant and buffalo) on foot. An armed ranger and tracker team share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you as you track the Big Five, as well as a variety of other wildlife. With highly qualified and experienced rangers and tracker teams on hand, guests have the flexibility to tailor-make their safari and connect with Africa in whichever way they choose. Book time with a dedicated, specialist ranger on a private safari vehicle (additional cost) to explore at your own pace and pursue your personal interests. This is your safari, your way.
Nestled in the heart of South Africa’s unspoilt Eastern Cape province lies Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, 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 30 kilometres through scenic landscape and comprises just twenty-six rooms split across five very individual and distinct safari lodges and villas, according to one of the highest land to guest ratios in South Africa. Renowned for quality guiding, understated luxury and the thousands of animals and wildlife that call the Reserve home, Kwandwe offers a range of safari activities and accommodation options to make every African Dream come true.
