Kwandwe Melton Manor

Kwandwe Game Reserve


Kwandwe Melton Manor Location Map

Only 2 hours from Port Elizabeth lies the 22,000 hectare malaria-free Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. In the heart of the reserve, set in a beautiful location overlooking the Fish river and afromontane forests, Melton Manor is a sole-use safari villa, and is the perfect escape for a family safari, as it accommodates up to 8 guests.

The elegant and simple design incorporates earthy, organic finishes - with deep inviting sofas and gorgeous Nguni rugs, and celebrates the style of early frontier days.

Your private ranger will lead you on interpretive, twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles, bringing you close to Africa's Big 5.

Fascinating nocturnal animals such as aardvark, aardwolf, porcupine, Cape fox, bat-eared fox and spring hare are regularly encountered on exciting night drives.

The 4 en-suite bedrooms feature innovative 'butler hatches' for discreet room service and the interactive kitchen will be a cosy place where guests can muck in with Melton Manor's expert chef.

Inbetween drives, guests can enjoy relaxing around the large swimming pool and the central courtyard.
