Kwandwe Fort House Location Map

Elegantly designed and set within a rugged landscape, Kwandwe Fort House is a sole use villa in a private setting, with sweeping views of the Great Fish River Valley and overlooking a private waterhole.

Located in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, the Kwandwe Private Game Reserve features 22,000 hectares of pristine wilderness, and is home to the famous Big Five, as well as cheetah, kudu, springbok, eland, red hartebeest, giraffe, black wildebeest and gemsbok.

In addition to a diverse number of smaller and more unusual species, the reserve is a paradise for birdwatchers. The fish eagle and endangered blue crane are among a wide variety of birds seen here.

A private safari vehicle with a dedicated ranger and tracker offers flexibility for daily game drives, game walks, big game walking safaris as well as fishing.

The central location of the house provides easy access to the prime game viewing areas of Kwandwe, while ensuring peace and tranquillity.

Comfortably accommodating families of up to 8, the house features 2 master bedrooms and 2 suites, as well as free-flowing living and entertainment areas, a wine cellar, the spa treatment room, and refreshing swimming pool, making Fort House the perfect escape.
