Uplands Homestead is a restored farmhouse that dates back to 1905 lying in the western region of the reserve in a remote and tranquil valley.

This elegant farmhouse has been lovingly restored into a luxurious home and retains all the charm and grace of an “Out of Africa” experience without losing its warmth and ambience. Décor and furnishings exemplify rich colours and textures, and original antiques are complimented with glass and crystal lanterns, ceramic lamps and silver candlestick holders.

The house is air-conditioned, there are three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, two of which have a ball and claw bath; a sitting and dining room, contemporary farm style kitchen, outdoor dining under the African stars, a large swimming pool and gazebo and a full contingent of friendly staff, including a dedicated chef and butler taking care of your every whim.
