Offering a phenomenal safari experience, explore this stunning private reserve to take-in rushing rivers, untamed wilderness and exciting activities. One of the Eastern Cape's premier reserves, with a Kwandwe Private Game Reserve safari you'll find only four luxurious and well-appointed properties that effortlessly blend the charm of the wild with every conceivable modern amenity. Service is second to none and guides are incredibly knowledgeable.
The Great Fish River is a highlight and guests can meander along its course with canoe safaris - excellent for game viewing considering the river's draw for wildlife. There are plenty of other activities to enjoy as well, with game drives remaining the staple means to view wildlife while rhino tracking is a special opportunity to track the endangered giants on foot; both scary and exhilarating.
Home to the Big 5, traverse the 22,000 hectare reserve in search of Africa's most famous inhabitants. Kwandwe's wide open plains make game viewing that bit easier with its roster of wildlife including kudu, cheetah, giraffe, wildebeest and red hartebeest. Birding in the reserve is also spectacular with the chance to see blue crane and the magnificent fish eagle.
