There is much to do, see, and experience at Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge. Dine in grandeur and enjoy delicious African-inspired meals on a private deck, in the candlelit dining room, or under the starlit sky in the cozy boma. Enjoy afternoon tea and siesta next to the refreshing swimming pool and unwind on a deep overstuff sofa on the large viewing decks that overlook the Great Fish River and witness majestic kudu meander down to the life-giving waters and otters swimming in the streams below. Travel into the Kwandwe Private Game Reserve for a sophisticated safari experience, whether daily morning, afternoon, and evening game drives, a water-based safari, a big game walk, or a simply sundowner in the bush. Within the reserve’s 22,000 hectares of pristine wilderness is a plethora of free roaming Big Five game as well as a diverse number of small and more unusual species, such as cheetah, giraffe, kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, black wildebeest, and gemsbok. The region is also a paradise for birdwatchers, with the Fish Eagle and endangered Blue Crane among a wide variety of birds found within its boundaries.
