Kwandwe Melton Manor
The 54,000 acre Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is in the heart of South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape and has five separate lodges. It is a safari destination in its own right or could be the natural conclusion or beginning to a journey along the world-famous Garden Route. Children of all ages are welcome.
Accommodation & Facilities
The four large en-suite bedrooms at Kwandwe Melton Manor are arranged around a central courtyard and swimming pool. The style here is of retro chic, a modern take on a contemporary frontier farmhouse, and each bedroom has a private verandah and air conditioning. A library, sitting room, dining room and interactive kitchen complete the facilities. Melton Manor can be taken on an exclusive use basis by up to eight people, or rooms can be booked individually.
Wildlife & Activities
Kwandwe is home to some intriguing habitats and good wildlife, including lion, black and white rhino, buffalo, elephant and cheetah. Predators are often sighted and there’s a good chance (in the African winter months) of seeing the elusive aardvark. During a stay here guests can enjoy day and night drives, guided bush walks, picnics, bush sundowners and fishing on the river, or can simply choose to do nothing and absorb this vast, private wilderness. Specialist walking safaris can also be arranged, searching for large animals such as elephant and buffalo with a specialised guide and tracker, subject to the availability of the guiding team. From 1st May to 30th September guests over 16 years old have the option to do an overnight walking safari with a night fly-camping for a small additional charge; please let us know if you would like to do this, as it must be pre-booked.
