WE stayed at Ecca lodge - my 3rd stay here and excellent. The viewing was better than ever. I had the same guide and tracker as on previous visits. I'd requested them as they are both brilliant - Nic and Vuani. The two previous occasions had been as a family group and they were so good with children. On this last occasion they were brilliant with two elderly ladies!

Dear Angela R

We're delighted you've stayed with us three times already! Kwandwe is indeed family friendly, and your compliments will definitely be passed along to Nic and Vuani.

We hope you'll be back again, for round four!

Kind regards

We attend at Ecca Lodge for 3 nights for a safari and what an experience!
From the time you arrive to the time you leave everything is done to pamper you.
The safari experience is great. Kwandwe has 22,000 hectares of land which is privately owned and managed and the driving for looking at the "Big 5" is a great experience. We saw a Cheeta, lions, elephants, Rhino, Giraffes, Zebras and all the other smaller grass feeder you would expect.
We had a private car with our own ranger and tracker and they did all they could to give us the best time ever on the drives.
In the hotel, the food was fabulous and the portions great. Everything is included (but then it's mot cheap so...) from food to drinks and even the laundry.
The staff were delightfully friendly and always there to help you out.
I strongly recommend.

Room Tip: Select Ecca Lodge on the the Kwandwe estate.

A really well run lodge in a lovely reserve with the full selection of game. Our ranger, Connor was a pleasure to be with and extremely well informed.
We had a thoroughly good time. Our suite was superb, as was the excellent restaurant. The service was first class and friendly.

Room Tip: They're all good

Kwandwe Ecca Lodge was great, large spacious suites, personal service with a smile, good food, and knowledgeable guides and trackers who did their best to ensure you saw all that the reserve has to offer. Rhino, lions, leopard, cheetah, elephants buffalo and more. Three nights at Kwandwe was a treat, the all-inclusive nature of the resort makes for a very relaxed and comfortable stay.

Dear goanpearl

It's lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Those certainly are incredible animals to see in the wild - and you saw the Big 5!

We're so pleased to have given you some great memories, and some time off from the bustle of everyday life.
