Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is one of five properties located in the Kwandwe Private Game Reserve and is well suited to both couples and families with a wonderful choice of activities.

With stunning views over densely vegetated valleys and escarpments, the property makes the most of the landscape. The 6 stand-alone and well-proportioned suites have been individually decorated, each in a different colour in celebration of the vibrance of Africa. Expansive wooden viewing decks provide the ideal setting to soak up the bushveld atmosphere with a leisurely lunch or a sundowner drink.

The 6 suites and main areas are glass-fronted allowing light and fresh air to flood in. The Suites are modern, with vibrantly funky touches, large verandahs and plunge pools.   Super-king sized beds, large bathrooms with free-standing baths and separate lounge areas with funky bean bags and day beds that can be reconfigured to accommodate children, all combine to provide a relaxing, sumptuous and colourful respite from dusty days out on the reserve. Outdoor showers tip a broad wink at safari tradition.

This child-friendly property includes an interactive kitchen and play centre, and kids can splash about in the lodge pool with its expansive decks and spacious living zones. Enjoy candlelit meals presented in romantic surroundings, paired with fine wines and friendly service.

Safari Experience

Twice daily game drives with guide and tracker – you will explore Kwandwe’s diverse terrain in search of cheetah, black rhino or elephant.   Late afternoon game drives last until after dark, when spotlights are used for a glimpse into the nocturnal bush life. Spot the rarely seen porcupine, aardwolf or aardvark. Enjoy sundowners in a scenic location as the sun slowly sinks beneath the horizon.

Nature walks accompanied by an armed ranger, big game walking safaris (tracking white rhino, black rhino, elephant and buffalo on foot, accompanied by an armed specialist ranger and tracker team) are all included in your stay. Back at the lodge a play centre for kids keeps little hands busy for hours and a shared lodge pool provides the perfect place for a communal splash.




Wildlife & Birdlife

Explore the natural splendour of Kwandwe on early morning and late afternoon/evening game drives in an open 4 x 4 safari vehicle. An armed ranger and tracker team share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you as you track the Big Five, as well as a variety of other wildlife. In between game drives, take a closer look at the subtle, unseen wonders of the bush on a leisurely walk within easy reach of your lodge. An armed ranger guides guests through ‘up close and personal’ sightings of occasional buffalo herds, various antelope species, giraffe, warthog, bushbuck or bushpig.

Added Extras

Scenic coastal flights, rhino monitoring, big game walking safaris, private safaris, flight of the Blue Crane and rhino darting are all available at an additional cost.
