Kwandwe Uplands HomesteadAddress: R67, Grahamstown view map
Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is situated in the heart of the Eastern Cape, within easy reach to South Africa's awe-inspiring coastline. It is a reserve that offers a perfect beginning or ending of a South African safari. The area's history is told in the wide open spaces and tranquil scenery through all the battles fought on and around Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. This land has been desired by many men and cultures and now people live in and around the reserve in peace and harmony.
The reserve consists of 22 000 hectares (54 400 acres) of an incredibly beautiful but previously neglected part of the African continent where all the natural wildlife has been reintroduced and restored to the land. 30km of uninterrupted river frontage along the Great Fish River offers a welcome source of water for all the game species.
Uplands Homestead strikes a balance between the genteel and the wild, with rolling lawns surrounding the stately home. Elegant and refined interiors with relics of the rich historical and cultural legacy found inside the homestead, Uplands offers the guest an experience of life in old Africa. With high ceilings, wooden floors and bay windows and a roaring fireplace, it gives guests the warm welcoming feeling of Africa.
The heart of Uplands Homestead is the kitchen like any old farm house in South Africa, with its wrought iron chandeliers and tiled walls, the private chef offers his skills to the guests and prepares pan African cuisine and local favourites. All the meals are served in the dining area where all the family and friends gather to reflect on the exciting day that has unfolded and to discuss what is to be expected on the next game activity.
