In July 2012, Kwandwe was bought by USA-based investors, the Chouest Family. Conservation and communities lie at the heart of the Chouest’s investment in Kwandwe. The whole family visit on an annual basis to enjoy all the reserve has to offer.


Kwandwe Ecca is a vibrant and funky, modern safari lodge ideal for couples and families alike. Offering an interactive kitchen for mealtime fun and a play centre for kids. Set in a malaria-free Big Five game reserve in the Eastern Cape, the perfect safari ending to a journey along the Garden Route


In a ground-breaking move, Kwandwe initiated its own social development arm in 2002, unique to the reserve and the surrounding rural communities. The Ubunye Foundation, is the soul of Kwandwe. Energy and resources are focused on those living in poverty stricken rural areas where access to basic goods and services, in particular education and healthcare, is severely limited.
