Kwandwe Private Game Reserve

Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is one of our favorite places in the Eastern Cape - teeming with game, roaming freely over this expansive and beautiful African wilderness. It stretches for over 40km along the lush riverbanks of Great Fish River, while it’s run by a superb team of staff and guides who are passionate about what they do and the conservation of the park. The game reserve has remarkably rich biodiversity, providing a haven for thousands of species of animals, including the sought-after “big five”. The lodges also benefit from being in the non-malarial Eastern Cape.

The reserve is huge, with only a handful of lodges scattered throughout it. Scott Dunn offer four luxurious Kwandwe lodges and country retreats, each with their own unique style. Whichever lodge you choose Kwandwe will offer a first class safari experience, injected with plenty of fun, authentic local food and exceptional service. Please phone our specialists to find out which Kwandwe property best suits your requirements.

Kwandwe Uplands Homestead

Kwandwe Uplands Homestead is an elegant and carefully restored Cape Dutch farmhouse, dating back to around the turn of the 20th century. It has three en-suite bedrooms and is available for families and small groups. Set back in the bush, this exclusive retreat suits those looking for total privacy and comes with its own guide, vehicle, butler, and chef.

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge

Funky Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is a wholly different experience to the Uplands Homestead, offering six intimate, modern and stylish suites. Each suite features a private plunge pool and spacious wraparound deck, while plenty of children’s entertainment makes it ideal for families. Additional amenities include a stunning infinity pool and an interactive open- kitchen serving traditional farm cuisine.

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge is comprised of nine luxurious thatched suites overlooking the river and surrounding valleys. Each has its own plunge pool and butler service, as well as an observation deck offering panoramic vistas of the park. It’s a wonderfully romantic setting, with a secluded feel, perfect for couples and honeymooners.

Kwandwe Melton Manor

Enjoying sweeping panoramas of Afromontane Forest, Kwandwe Melton Manor is a grand and exclusive four-bedroom safari villa. Like the Uplands Homestead, it’s available for solo use by families or groups; having undergone recent refurbishment, it offers the highest level of luxury safari accommodation. There is a discrete butler service, as well as your own 4x4 vehicle, chef and tracker team.
