Originally built in 1905, this old farmhouse retains all of its old world charm in spite of having been lovingly restored to modern standards. Uplands Homestead is set in a peaceful valley and offers a fantastic safari experience in Kwandwe Private Game Reserve; malaria free and home to the Big 5.
The homestead offers three luxury suites each beautifully furnished with colonial design. Guest's air conditioned rooms possess a safe, quaint furnishings and bathrooms with Victorian claw foot bathtubs. Enjoy a charming farmhouse kitchen and admire the view from private verandas. Interiors are refined and nicely juxtapose the surrounding wilderness.
The kitchen at Uplands is very much the centre point of the property; delicious dishes are served by the highly trained chef in the dining room with a range of sumptuous dishes on offer. When not out on activities guests can unwind in the large pool or take a stroll around the beautifully manicured lawns. Safaris from the property are very much a personalised experience, with a private guide waiting to take guests into Kwandwe wilderness in a 4x4 safari vehicle. Guiding is excellent, with trackers able to locate some of Africa's most famous inhabitants with seamless ease.
A 1 hour 45 minute drive from Port Elizabeth or a 30 minute flight directly from Port Elizabeth to the Kwandwe Airstrip followed by a short transfer to the lodge.
