Celebrating our Kwandwe Community

At this time of year, we look back and celebrate everything that we have achieved together as a community here at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve with your incredible support and generosity. “Take pride in how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go. But don’t forget to enjoy the journey.” - Michael Josephson Every year, the Mgcamabele Community centre at Kwandwe, hosts the end of year graduation for the children completing their final year of pre-school.

It's a very special moment for all of us to watch on as our young grow up and take the next steps, building on the strong foundation they have created here at Kwandwe.  Read More

Lion dynamics

Our fears on the fate of the Old South Lioness appear to have been confirmed, as she has not been seen since late January. At this point we must assume she succumbed to her injuries and it is the end of an era, as this once formidable lioness is no more.
