Kwandwe Private Game Reserve
Eastern Cape

Four award-winning lodges nestled in 22,000 hectares of pristine wilderness; Kwande Game Reserve offers the perfect safari experience. Families and small groups can enjoy an exclusive booking at two of the lodges, Uplands Homestead (gracious-expect damask linens, antique silver and porcelain) and Melton Manor (chic and relaxed). Both of these splendid choices come with a private 4x4 safari vehicle and dedicated ranger, chef and butler. The other two lodges, Great Fish River Lodge with its sweeping views and plunge-pools and penthouse-style Ecca Lodge offer contrasting but equally luxurious styles. Early morning walks here bring prime wildlife spotting - from warthogs to lions. Thoughtful touches include ‘winter warmer’ suits provided in the colder months.

Delicious African-inspired meals are served on private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or in the cosy boma under a magnificent starlit sky. Paradise found!

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
