Kwandwe Uplands Homestead


A genteel “Out of Africa” experience

In the heart of South Africa’s untouched The Eastern Cape province, Kwandwe Uplands Homestead twinkles and beckons the modern traveller with old-fashioned dreams. This “Out of Africa”-esque 1905 farmhouse has been tenderly restored to retain all its charm of yesteryear, while bestowing upon guests a sense of remote wilderness that only the African bush is able to do. 
The world-class Big 5 safari destination of Kwandwe Game Reserve is home to Uplands Homestead and is renowned for its understated luxury, exquisite scenery, and thousands of animal and bird species. A personal ranger will tailor your safari to your individual interests on private game drives, night drives, bird watching, and bush walks.
Elegant, refined interiors with damask linens, wrought-iron chandeliers, and antique silver and porcelain create the perfect appendage to the rolling lawns and sweeping aloe slopes of the exterior. Three suites with private bathrooms showcase meticulous attention to detail as antique mirrors, claw-foot bathtubs, bay windows, and yellowwood chests and wardrobes blend with air-conditioning, private verandahs, and other modern conveniences. The vintage farm-style kitchen is where your chef will create fresh delights.
