AWARD WINNING BIG FIVE SAFARI DESTINATION

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 thirty rooms split across six very individual and distinct safari lodges, camp and villas, affording it 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.

PLEASE NOTE:

We have reduced rates available for domestic travel until 15 December 2020. Contact our reservations team for details.
