With sweeping views of the river and mountains in three different directions, Kwandwe Melton Manor is a whimsical mix of old and new, a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch.
Antique settler furniture is given fresh life with a coat of colourful paint, and quirky touches combine familiar objects with unfamiliar uses, shades or locations.
High ceilings and deep verandas produce a sense of space, while deep couches, warm fireplaces and casual touches invite you to kick back and relax.
Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is a renowned conservation and community success story.
Located in South Africa’s scenic Eastern Cape province, the 22,000 hectares/ 54 000 acres of pristine wilderness is home to the famous Big Five as well as a diverse number of smaller and more unusual species.
Game-rich country with Big Five (black & white rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard) as well as a remarkable variety of predators and general game, including cheetah, kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, giraffe, black wildebeest and gemsbok A paradise for birdwatchers, the Fish Eagle and endangered Blue Crane are among a wide variety of birds found on the Reserve Excellent nocturnal viewing – aardwolf, aardvark and porcupine are regularly seen.
Your bedroom offers a private refuge with a broad veranda, large 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 vast windows mean the bushveld view competes for your attention with the immense handmade crystal, wire and clay-bead chandelier.
The interactive farm-style kitchen invites you to try your hand at combining flavours under the cheerful guidance of your personal chef or merely 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.
