After a week working my way along the spectacular Garden route coastline, Kwande presents the perfect end to my trip. This 22,000 hectare reserve is home to the Big 5 and abundant wildlife. It's July and I'm greeted by a dramatic flowering carpet of winter Aloes as I approach Melton Manor, a private sole use villa that accommodates up to eight guests.
Ideal for families or groups of friends, this contemporary frontier farmhouse promise a luxury stay and tailor-made safari adventure. You'll even have your own private safari vehicle (personal tracker and ranger team included) on standby! Sandwiched between the North and South banks of the Great Fish River, unending views of bushveld and blue tinged mountains stretch in three directions. All the bedrooms have deep viewing verandahs, as I sit on mine at dusk my soul is freed by the sense of space and silence.
