The Uplands Homestead lies at the heart of South Africa's Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, 22 000 hectares (54 000 acres) of beautiful wilderness stretched out on either side of the Great Fish River. This safari destination is a natural conclusion to a vacation along the world-famous Garden Route.
Located in the malaria-free Eastern Cape province, this diverse and fascinating reserve has been restored and restocked with classic African wildlife. Kwandwe is a conservation success story which includes reclaiming areas of intense agriculture, reintroducing more than 7 000 wild animals (including elephant, black and white rhino, lion, leopard and cheetah), and providing a refuge for sensitive, sub-tropical thicket vegetation.
Uplands Homestead is perfect for families who want space for their kids to run around, or for small groups seeking privacy. A sensitively restored 1905 farmhouse, it has a lovely old-world feel and its grounds are fenced for peace of mind. Laze around the garden, cool off in the large swimming pool, or make use of your private ranger and 4x4 safari vehicle to explore the private game reserve in search of the Big 5 and other fascinating wildlife.
