Kwandwe Ecca Lodge

Classic A deluxe lodge or tented camp, almost all with swimming pools, excellent food and service, large nicely appointed rooms or tents with comfortable beds and tasteful decor; most of the lodges have air-conditioning and the tents are usually fan-cooled.

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge features six luxurious suites with large living rooms, bedrooms and en suite bathrooms.  The innovative, stylish and intimate rooms have glass sliding doors that open out to wrap-around decks where you will find a plunge pool and outdoor shower.  Highlights of the guest area are the open interactive kitchen, a rim-flow lap pool lined with shaded decks and teak lounge chairs and library.

Located in the Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, this malaria-free game reserve is home to the Big Five and numerous endangered animals. Twice-daily game drives in open 4x4 safari vehicles are taken with your resident guides. Other activities are bush sundowners, dinners on the banks of the Great Fish River, picnics in the reserve, guided walking, hiking and canoeing, fishing, rhino tracking, sleep-outs, visits to hides and Pioneer cultural storytelling evenings.

Traveler Feedback

We loved our time at Kwandwe Ecca Lodge.  We loved the rooms, the staff, the service, the food... we really cannot say enough great things about this place.  The game viewing was really good, not the best we’ve had, but really good.  We did get to see our first leopard ever there (thanks to the patience and dedication of our awesome Ranger and Tracker!!!), heard our first lion roar there (truly awesome), and got charged at by a black rhino (truly spectacular).  It really is the staff, service, food and rooms that set this place apart for us.  The staff treated us like royalty, and the extra touches (like a special BBQ sun-downer in the bush, a fantastic bush breakfast, and a romantic dinner in our room on Valentine’s Day) make this place truly special.  It really was a decadent safari experience!!!
