Kwandwe Ecca Lodge - Eastern Cape, South Africa

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge is situated within the Kwande Private Game Reserve near Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape in South Africa. The malaria-free reserve flanks the north and south banks of the Great Fish River and is home to amazing wildlife.

This intimate lodge is made up of six spacious suites each with their own large verandah with a plunge pool, perfect for cooling off after a day in the bush. The interior design has a modern feel with hues of orange, rust and olive and contemporary sofas are mixed with old collectables from the area.

Activities revolve around nature drives in a private open safari vehicle as well as guided bush walks, bush sundowners and picnics. You can also enjoy fishing excursions, learn about rhino capture and discover the archaeological and battlefield history of surrounding Grahamstown.
