About Kwandwe Ecca Lodge
Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is set in spectacular African wilderness in the malaria free private Kwandwe Game Reserve
. This lodge boasts a revolutionary design - stone-and-mesh gabion walls, sliding glass, timber and gauze doors and corrugated iron roofing. Exquisite guest areas overlook spekboom valleys with a backdrop of the distant cliff-faces of ecca shale.
Nestled into a gently sloping, densely vegetated hillside, the Lodge is airy and open with barely a barrier between indoors and the African bushveld.
Each suite features an en suite bathroom with spacious, plate glass-enclosed shower, bath, private w.c and twin hand-basins, as well as a sitting area which can comfortably convert into accommodation for children 11 years and younger.
Overlooking rolling spekboom valleys, guest areas comprise a spacious sitting room with fireplace, dining room and bar area and deep veranda with expansive viewing decks. Delicious fresh farm cuisine is prepared in the modern, open-plan kitchen and an interpretive centre provides hours of entertainment for children of all ages.
Kwande Ecca Lodge is located in the historically and culturally rich Eastern Cape in an extraordinary big game wilderness. The lodge offers exciting South African safari activities including twice-daily game-drives and guided river walking/hiking.
Kwandwe is home to the Big Five: Lion, Buffalo, Elephant, Leopard, White and Black Rhino, as well as Cheetah, Kudu, Giraffe and a variety of other Antelopes.
A bird watcher's paradise, the area is home to Fish Eagle and the endangered Blue Crane.
Kwandwe is also close to Addo Elephant National Park allowing an alternative safari destination to the private reserve.
