Game drives on an African safari never disappoint when showcasing the vast landscapes, iconic wildlife and natural wonders of Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. Every drive is unique as cool mornings promise grazing herds, late afternoons see wildlife congregating along the riverbanks and the evening reveals the glowing eyes of nocturnal predators. The Great Fish River winds its way through this Reserve and is inhabited by crocodiles in the muddy banks and hippos bobbing in the water.
Expert rangers and trackers explore the terrain with you as you seek out the Big Five that roam freely, endemic wildlife such as aardvarks, aardwolves, bat-eared foxes, porcupines and kaleidoscopic birdlife. Not to be overlooked are the small creatures that add to the fascinating tapestry of the bush. Kwandwe means ‘Place of the Blue Crane’ and is home to a thriving population of South Africa’s highly endangered national bird. The Reserve also protects many threatened species, such as the Knysna woodpecker, Cape grysbok, black wildebeest, black rhino, crowned eagle and black-footed cat.
