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.
