Kwandwe’s Great Fish River Lodge is designed to welcome in the enormous landscape on which it is situated. With the vastness of Africa all around, this luxurious lodge offers complete privacy, wonderful views and is the perfect honeymoon destination. It is also the natural conclusion to a journey along the world-famous Garden Route.
Set along the lush banks of the Great Fish River, the luxurious Kwandwe Great Fish River lodge offers guests a malaria-free Big Five safari experience. The lodge consists of spectacular guest areas, with a high thatched roof heavy with chandeliers, large fireplaces and comfortable armchairs that offer a luxurious home away from home.
Guest can retire to one of the nine richly-adorned glass and thatch suites that are positioned to make the most of the magnificent views. With overhead fans, air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms with an indoor and outdoor shower, each suite also features a thatched viewing deck, private plunge pool and floor to ceiling doors, which fold back to welcome in the untamed beauty of the surrounds.
The delicious cuisine is both African with a touch of international flare and meals are designed to surprise, with thoughtful delicacies taken either on your own viewing deck, in the dining room or by lantern light in the cosy walled boma, as well as any number of unexpected locations.
Take twice daily game drives with Kwandwe’s skilled rangers and trackers, who will lead you on a thrilling journey through the bush, tracking a wide variety of animal and bird species. Interpretive bush walks through dense euphorbia thickets reveal a secret world of flora and fauna, as well as various birds of prey nesting high above. Other activities include fishing, canoeing and bush picnics. Night game drives will have you searching for illusive nocturnal wildlife, such as the shy aardwolf and aardvark and the bat-eared fox.
For an additional fee you can also enjoy luxury walking adventures, rhino darting and tailor made safaris. Another available activity is to take to the skies in a fixed wing plane and take in the beauty of the reserve from above.
