Kwandwe is a celebration of what conservation can achieve through regeneration. Once farmland, the reserve is rich in biodiversity and lies within the Eastern Cape, where seven of South Africa's eight biomes meet. The diverse and undulating landscape is home to several endangered species, including black and white rhino and cheetah.
Through the centre of the reserve, the Great Fish River meanders for 30kms, and along its course, you find Great Fish River Lodge. Further west lies Kwandwe Ecca Lodge, and in prime locations are the exclusive villas: Fort House, Melton Manor and Uplands.
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.
In July 2012, Kwandwe was brought by USA-based investors, the Chouest Family. Conservation and communities lie at the heart of the Chouest's investment in Kwandwe. The family visits on a regular basis to enjoy all the reserve has to offer.
