A vast and pristine 22,000 hectare/ 54,000 acre wilderness extending along 30 km/ 19 miles of privately owned Great Fish River frontage in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region, Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is home to a diverse array of wildlife including the ‘Big Five’, as well as cheetah, hippo, springbok, giraffe and more. The soul-stirring beauty of the landscape lends its charm to all four of its modern, yet intimate and luxurious lodges. The reserve is a delight to travellers young and old and provides superb game and bird viewing as well as providing habitat for protected species such as the Black Rhino, Blue Crane and Martial Eagle.
Guests can participate in day and night game drives, nature walks with experienced trackers, and picnics or sundowner drinks on a specially designed floating platform on one of the reserve dams. Also offered are specialised activities such as rhino darting and big game walking safaris.
Kwandwe has a strong focus on conservation and community development. Visit the local community centre to see first-hand how responsible tourism is enriching the lives of everyone touched by Kwandwe.
