Kwandwe Private Game Reserve lies in the heart of South Africa’s malaria-free Eastern Cape near Grahamstown, and is a natural conclusion to a journey along the world-famous Garden Route. A victory for far-sighted conservation, 20 000 hectares (49 000 acres) of farmland in the Great Fish River region were restored and restocked with African wildlife. Today, thousands of animals including lion, black and white rhino, buffalo and elephant roam this diverse and fascinating reserve.

Kwandwe aptly means “Place of the Blue Crane” in Xhosa (South Africa’s highly endangered national bird) and is home to a population of these rare birds. It offers an exceptional safari experience in a region steeped in history and culture. The Great Fish River was a hotly contested border during the Frontier Wars of 1779 to 1878 between the Xhosa nation, Dutch farmers and the 1820 Settlers from England. Kwandwe’s reception building is a Frontier War-era fortified homestead, and the Reserve boasts its own intimate chapel. Kwandwe is a proud member of Relais & Chateaux.

Construction is well underway for Kwandwe's newest sole-use villa, Melton Manor, a contemporary Eastern Cape homestead set to open in June 2007. Set in a beautiful location overlooking the river and afromontane forests (between Uplands Homestead and Great Fish River Lodge), Melton Manor has a large swimming pool and central courtyard and is the perfect escape for family safaris. The elegant and simple design will incorporate earthy, organic finishes; deep, inviting sofas; gorgeous Nguni rugs; dramatic photography; and will celebrate the style of early frontier days. The four ensuite bedrooms will feature innovative “butler hatches” for discreet room service, and the interactive kitchen will be a cosy place where guests can muck in with Melton's expert chef.
