In a time when claims to luxury are a dime a dozen, something remarkable is required to separate one property from the pack. Kwandwe Uplands Homestead achieves the difficult feat with distinctive touches that add charisma and character to an easy elegance. Wherever you look there is evidence that Kwandwe Uplands Homestead is blessed with an increasingly rare quality: unique style.
Wrought iron chandeliers, damash linen, claw-foot bathtubs, turquiose tiles framing the fireplace and antique mirrors are a few of the trophies in Kwandwe's collection of signature pieces. Add to this charm, the freedom that comes with high ceilings, wooden floors, bay windows, shady verandahs and large swimming pool and you've got a property that stands head and shoulders above the rest. A private butler and chef are simply a bonus to an already magical experience. With so much going for the property, it's no surprise that people have taken notice. One such admirer stands out: Relais & Châteaux. Kwandwe Uplands Homestead saunters past competition to claim a place among this prestigious group's members.
A personal ranger tailors your safari to your specific interests and whims. Kwandwe presents no shortage of experiences to pick and choose from, including game drives, night drives, bird watching, bush walks, river safaris, cultural interaction, interpretive historical walks and excursions and captivating fireside anecdotes. The wildlife at Kwandwe Game Reserve includes the usual favourites: elephant, white and black rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard. Kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, giraffe and impala fill in the gaps between sightings of the Big 5. Birding is spectacular with a chance of seeing the Blue Crane and the Fish Eagle's evocative call is heard echoing through the valley.
