Kwandwe Game Reserve

Kwandwe lodges

Situated at the heart of the malaria-free Eastern Cape province, Kwandwe is within easy reach of South Africa's spectacular coastline and provides the perfect beginning or ending to a journey along the famed Garden Route.

Kwandwe itself consists of 22 000 hectares (54 400 acres) of a hauntingly beautiful but previously neglected part of the African continent where the area's natural wildlife has been painstakingly restored.

Within the Kwandwe Game Reserve there is just 22 rooms and suites spread across across four intimate and award-winning lodges, two of these lodges are sole-use villas, providing understated luxury and one of the highest guest to land ratios in South Africa.

Do we as a team here at Uyaphi.com recommend Kwandwe? Yes most certainly Yes.
