A 22,000 hectare wilderness flanking the banks of the Eastern Cape’s Great Fish River, Kwandwe is home to the ‘Big Five’ as well as cheetah, hippo, springbok, giraffe and more. The soul-stirring beauty of the landscape lends its charm to all four of its modern, yet intimate lodges. A delight to travellers young and old, the reserve provides superb game and bird viewing. Kwandwe is an ideal and stimulating location for children. Not only is there a host of tailor made activities on offer through the reserve’s Blue Crane Conservation Club to keep little ones enthralled and entertained, but the malaria-free status and proximity to a range of family and child-friendly activities in the area make this a safari experience without parallel for families.
