Keeping it stylish in Kwandwe

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is one of four luxury lodges on malaria-free Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, about two hours’ drive from Port Elizabeth. Situated on rolling slopes overlooking an acacia valley with a backdrop of steep shale cliffs, the views are astounding.  

Skilled rangers and trackers lead guests on morning and evening game drives exploring four distinct habitats harbouring characteristic fauna and flora. Guests are also welcome to partake in a thrilling on-foot Big Game tracking activity, bringing you up close and personal with the Big 5 and other wildlife. Ever-changing, inspired, locally-sourced menus on offer morning, noon and night satiate all hunger and curiosity cravings. 

This lodge is innovative, stylish and intimate, embodying a "funk meets futuristic farmhouse" ambience with giant Warhol-like prints, retro light fittings and a bold palette. A rim-flow lap pool with a shaded teak sundeck, open-plan interactive kitchen and interpretive library are also available. The six airy Suites feature luxuriously proportioned living areas, bedrooms and bathrooms. Wrap-around wooden decks are accessed via glass doors from the sitting rooms and bedrooms, and feature outdoor showers with galvanised bath base and stone wall.
