Kwandwe Private Game Reserve
In the heart of the Eastern Cape is Beyond Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, a conservation victory boasting 22 000 hectares (54 400 acres) of former farmland that has been restored and restocked with wildlife. This pristine wilderness area is home to Africa’s Big Five, and is the perfect start or end to a journey along the breathtakingly beautiful Garden Route.
Within easy reach of South Africa’s sunny coastline, &Beyond Kwandwe is an ideal malaria-free safari destination. The Reserve flanks both the north and south banks of the Great Fish River, which meanders for 30 km (19 miles) through this pristine, private wilderness where the Big Five once again roams freely.
Kwandwe’s vast landscape is affected by the ocean, with south-facing slopes capturing moisture from the sea breezes resulting in denser or taller vegetation and brightly coloured lichens. In contrast, the north-facing slopes tend to be drier and more open and feature striking aloes, which flower in spectacular profusion during the winter months (June to August). Forest-like thickets of tree euphorbia grow on the steep, south-facing slopes. These spiny plants are immune to destruction from most animal species (except the black rhino) thanks to the poisonous milky latex they exude.
