Kwandwe Self-drive Safari: Day-by-day

More detailed information of what each day entails, and the various places you’ll stay on the Kwandwe Self-drive Safari. Everything we do is completely tailor-made so while this is an idea which works well, we’ll always design an itinerary just for you.


Day 1

Starts: Port Elizabeth International Airport

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge
Days 1-4

Ecca Lodge

3 nights
Full BoardKwandwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is a gem which pulls off an almost unique trick: excelling for both couples and families. In South Africa's malaria-free Eastern Cape area, Ecca Lodge stands on rolling spekboom hills within the Kwandwe Game Reserve. This is one of the top reserves in the area with a real sense of wilderness – thanks to it having very few fences and excellent densities of big game.

Ecca Lodge's smart, inventive architecture and décor, combined with excellent facilities, made the lodge immediately appealing to us on arrival. It felt trendy and yet never stuffy or intimidating and clearly everything here is of a high quality.

When we visited most recently, as part of a family, what stood out was the quality of the service; the excellent food; the highly flexible and genuinely friendly staff. Then the first-rate guiding here delivered a truly great game experience.

"Saw a lot of animals with a good ranger who was informative and friendly"

Their care and genuine flexibility made Ecca a brilliant lodge for our families, with small children; whilst its small size and tailored approach nature meant it still felt 'special' and so very romantic - perfect for a honeymoon. That’s a rare combination! See our full report on Kwandwe Ecca Lodge
