Your Private Wilderness

In the heart of South Africa’s Eastern Cape lies Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, 30,000 hectares of pristine wilderness stretched out on either side of the meandering Great Fish River.

Renowned for quality guiding, authentic and diverse experiences, and the thousands of animals and wildlife that call the reserve home, Kwandwe offers a range of meaningful activities and accommodation options to create lifelong memories.

Our Purpose

Protecting our heritage

Our ultimate purpose as a tourism conservation entity is to contribute sustainably to the environment, protect the incredible biodiversity of the Eastern Cape, and positively impact our surrounding communities.

It is our aim that every guest at Kwandwe understands our ethos and leaves knowing that they have actively participated in what we hope has become a shared vision.

Our purpose


Award-winning lodges & villas with heart & soul

With only 26 rooms spread across the euphorbia-studded landscape, Kwandwe has one of the highest land-to-guest ratios in South Africa. With both intimate, tranquil lodges and exclusive-use villas, there’s an option to suit families, couples, groups of friends and solo travellers.

Our accommodation


A diverse and flexible safari

Sharing our knowledge of the bush is our passion. Our team of highly-qualified rangers offer a range of authentic activities, from game drives to rhino conservation, walking safaris to fishing expeditions, and will do their utmost to delight at every turn.
