Game viewing is our prime motive for travelling from Australia to Kwandwe, a private game reserve with an abundance of wildlife, lovingly maintained by all who live here. Such excitement every time we began a drive....simply not...

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, nothing was too much trouble. The staff are exemplary and almost anticipate one's requirements. The food was delicious if somewhat filling and the accommodation outstanding. We would recommend Lodges 1 and 2. Yes, it's a bit of a walk but the wild life you will see in the early morning...
