Rooms & Suites:
Your bedroom offers a private refuge with a deep veranda, enormous bed and butler hatch for unobtrusive morning service. Sandstone walls and crocheted blankets in funky shades mingle for a nostalgic yet cosy atmosphere.
The deep bathtub invites you for a soak and the large windows mean the bushveld view competes for your attention with the immense handmade crystal, wire and clay-bead chandelier.
Food & Wine:
The interactive farm-style kitchen invites you to try your hand at combining flavors under the cheerful guidance of your personal chef or simply to watch as meals or snacks expertly take shape whenever you want.
Share meals and laughter in the dining room table or around the enormous farmhouse table in the fresh air of the terrace.
But there's no need to be formal - fresh, generous cuisine goes just as well in the ox wagon boma or at a casual picnic site in mid-game drive.
Sole-use safari villa for groups of up to eight. Private 4x4 safari vehicle, butler, chef, and ranger and tracker team.
Twice daily game drives - explore the natural diversity of Kwandwe on early morning and late afternoon / evening game drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle. An armed ranger and tracker team will share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you and will track the Big Five, as well as a variety of other wildlife. Morning drives begin as dawn breaks over the Great Fish River, and guests have the opportunity to see the predators winding up their nocturnal hunts and settling in for the day. Many animals take advantage of the cool morning hours to graze before the heat of the day. In the late afternoon the wildlife can often be spotted coming down to the river to drink. Night drives produces some unusual sightings, including aardvark, aardwolf, bat-eared fox and porcupine.
Interpretive bush walks - in between game drives, take a closer look at the intricate details of the bush on a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge. Dense euphorbia thickets are best explored on foot, revealing a secret world of lichen, mosses and ferns. Various birds of prey and other species nest in the taller trees or in the spiny canopy. An armed ranger guides guests through up close and personal sightings of an occasional buffalo, bushbuck or bushpig.
