Kwandwe Game Reserve holidays

Kwandwe Private Game Reserve flanks both the north and south banks of the Great Fish river, which meanders for 30km (19 miles) through this pristine, private wilderness where the Big Five once again roam freely. Safari enthusiasts from around the world visit Kwandwe to view Africa’s famous Big Five (lions, leopards, elephants, buffaloes and rhinos), but the reserve is also home to a wealth of other unique and interesting animals. Species such as kudu, grysbok, aardwolf, aardvark and caracal, which had always existed freely in the area, are once again thriving in their natural habitat. Kwandwe offers some of the most magnificent cheetah sightings in Africa and is also home to black rhinos, one of the world’s most endangered large animals. As Kwandwe is a private reserve, night drives are a daily feature and often result in unusual sightings, such as rarely spotted porcupines, aardwolfs and aardvarks. Activities in the Kwandwe lodges include twice-daily safari drives and interpretative bush walks. At an additional cost, guests can spend time with a local historian and raconteur, and learn all about the history of the Eastern Cape, with insightful visits to ancient San Bushman rock art sites and neighbouring forts and military towns, such as Fort Beaufort and Grahamstown.
