Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, Kwandwe Ecca Lodge
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. The wide open spaces and tranquil
scenery belie the area's turbulent history, and relics of the area's
rich historical and cultural legacy can be found both on the reserve
and nearby. 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
A conservation victory, Kwandwe is home to thousands of animals, including lion, black and white rhino, buffalo, elephant and cheetah, as well as Africa's famous Big Five.
One of the
greatest luxuries Africa can offer is the sense of space. At Great
Fish River Lodge, the vastness of this wild continent is all around
you, from the spectacular views from the lodge's decks to the huge
windows that let a sense of grandeur right into your very bedroom.
Stone walls, thatch roofs and long wooden walkways bring natural materials into the interiors, blurring the distinction between inside and outside.
Everything takes place on a grander scale, imbuing the rugged landscape with the power to take your breath away.
Set high up on a steep bank of the Great Fish River, the Lodge overlooks a majestic vista that stretches far into the horizon. With expansive viewing decks, every moment offers an opportunity to explore more of the wonders of the bush - a majestic kudu picking its way to the water's edge or a pair of Cape clawless otters cavorting in the river. The rugged landscape is reflected in the materials and frontier style of the lodge, while the gleaming antiques and warm rugs of the interior mirror the magnificence of the scenery.
Floor to ceiling glass doors give onto private balconies and offer a splendid vista from every corner of each of the nine suites. Even a soak in the bathtub lets you take in the view across the river, complete with wildlife coming down to drink. An exclusive plunge pool is conveniently located on the deck of every suite.
Meal times are arranged to surprise, with thoughtful delicacies served on the viewing decks, in the dining room, by lantern light in the cosy walled boma or in any of a number of unexpected locations. Soaring ceilings and huge stone chimneys dominate the guest areas, creating imposing spaces filled with comfort and light. But not everything is arranged to impose, with cosy spaces created from the warm rock walls, dark leather armchairs and deep coloured rugs.
