This was our third visit to Kwandwe. We have been impressed with the accommodation, game drives and sheer luxury enhanced by excellent staff - and this visit reinforced our impression of this wonderful place.
The rooms are excellent - comfortable and well-equipped (including wifi), the food is stunningly good and plentiful (as witnessed by my expanding waistline!), the staff couldn't be more friendly, helpful and efficient.
Our ranger (Alfie) and spotter (Yongama) on the game drives were excellent. Although we didn't see the elusive leopards, we did see a great many of the lovely animals (including aardwolf and bat-eared foxes which we hadn't seen on our previous visits).
We are already planning our return in 2019!
