Kwandwe Private Game Reserve


Nestled in the heart of South Africa’s unspoilt Eastern Cape province lies Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, a world-class Big Five safari destination.

The 22,000 hectares of pristine private wilderness stretches either side of the Great Fish River which meanders for 30 kilometres through scenic landscape and comprises just thirty rooms split across six very individual and distinct safari lodges, camp and villas, affording it one of the highest land-to-guest ratios in South Africa.

Couples can enjoy the tranquility that Great Fish River Lodge and Ecca Lodge offer, where stand-alone suites are privately located away from each other as well as central guest areas.

At Galpin Tented Camp, four eco-friendly tents are designed to inspire connections with the natural world and are perfect for couples and groups to share quality time, undisturbed by the outside world.

Families of up to four can enjoy the flexibility that a Family Suite at Ecca Lodge offers, complete with a private safari vehicle. 

Renowned for quality guiding, understated luxury and the thousands of animals and wildlife that call the Reserve home, Kwandwe offers a range of safari activities and accommodation options to make every African Dream come true.
