Kwandwe was absolutely amazing, and I can't wait to go back. I was so impressed by the level of service - everyone on the staff knew our names from the second we got there and went above and beyond in so many different aspects (i.e. making dinner reservations for us in Cape Town which was the next stop on our trip). The rangers and trackers were very knowledgable and made all of the game drives interesting and fun. The food was incredible and the accommodation was amazing. I wouldn't change a thing!

Kwandwe was simply sublime. Luxurious, sumptuous, outstanding. The rooms are in fact private chalets with their own plunge pools, sundecks and outside showers. The lodge is relaxed class and sophistication where we felt like royalty and were treated the same from the moment we arrived to the moment we left as the gameviewing was absolutely fantastic!
