Time together

Life is busy and time flies by too fast. Before you know it, you are thinking “Where has the year gone?”

Slow down a little and reignite a true, face to face, connection with family and friends with a private getaway surrounded by nothing but the African bush, open skies and time to enjoy it all together. Away from cumbersome laptops, demanding cellphones and noisy traffic – find quite landscapes, open vistas and enchanting wildlife experiences.

Our private villas are made just for this. Time. Families or small groups of friends have their choice of three gracious sole-use safari villas, Fort House, Uplands Homestead and Melton Manor. With private pools, spacious living areas and expansive views across the reserve, not to mention a full complement of staff discreetly on hand to ensure everything is taken care of, it is truly a haven for time together.

When you’re on holiday with your family and friends, it’s good to know that activities and outings can be organised around your individual desires and group’s general speed. A private safari vehicle with a ranger and tracker offers a complete flexible itinerary. We love the freedom to choose whether we go on a game drive or a nature walk, open-flame campfire cooking or even just staying by the pool and absorbing the view. Children are kept entertained affording mom some time to enjoy a wellness treatment.

When not out exploring the reserve, relax on the terrace watching wildlife wander by listening to birdsong. A dip in the swim in the pool is always welcome to cool off from the African sunshine before dinner served under the stars around the traditional boma!

The most exciting part of a visit to Kwandwe is that you can tailor-make your stay with special safari experiences with a team of specialists. Become part of the conservation victories by taking part in a Rhino Conservation Safari. Also on offer is bird watching and testing your mettle and endurance with a new Winter Wilderness Walking with fly-camping experience.

Private villa stays are certainly the best way to experience the private game reserve when travelling with more than just your partner. This year, villa stays are even hotter with Free Flights when staying 3 or more nights until 31 December 2019. Start your South African Safari before you even get to Kwandwe by hopping onto a private charter flight and arrive refreshed and ready for adventure. FIND OUT MORE. It’s time to start planning that private safari of a lifetime.
