Gently rolling hills stretch to the horizon around this modern safari lodge in South Africa’s Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. Set on a rise overlooking a watering hole for wildlife, this fully staffed villa lets you watch wildlife from your own watering hole (the swimming pool) or dine out in the boma. While it feels remote, it’s a short flight or 105-minute drive from Port Elizabeth.
Start the day with breakfast in the bush, then set off on a game drive included in your stay, where you can spot the Big 5 along with a range of bird species. Open vehicles mean there aren’t any windows between you and the animals, and Kwandwe is both the largest private reserve in South Africa and malaria free. If you’re keen to get some photos or spot a particular bird, ask about having one of the reserve’s photographic or birdwatching experts accompany your drive.
You can also take a guided walking safari, send the kids off on children’s activities, and ask about volunteering at the Mgcamabele Community Centre before finishing the day with sunset drinks and an alfresco dinner.
Tailor your stay by adding experiences such as a rhino monitoring drive or rhino conservation safari, where you’ll get the chance to track rhinos under the guidance of Kwandwe’s experts. Learn how to braai like a South African during a campfire cooking class with one of the reserve chefs, and treat yourself with an in-villa manicure or massage.
