Ecca Lodge, Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, Eastern Cape

By  |  0 Comments

Ecca Lodge is perfect for you if you are looking for a sophisticated, but relaxed, feet-up-style honeymoon in the Eastern Cape.

With an exclusive footprint of only four lodges sharing 22 000 ha, the ratio of guests to space is the real luxury of going on safari at Kwandwe, a privately owned game reserve within easy driving distance of Port Elizabeth and the Garden Route. Completely refurbished in 2014, Ecca Lodge is an intimate, romantic hideaway overlooking the Great Fish River, which meanders through the reserve.

There are only six suites, separated by acacia, aloe and spekboom-rich indigenous vegetation for maximum privacy and solitude. The decor is brightly accented and full of interesting textures for supreme, unfussy comfort. These are proper suites, each with a spacious living room, viewing deck, plunge pool and outdoor shower. All of the big five are here, as well as cheetah, giraffe, kudu, zebra and numerous threatened bird species (including the endangered blue crane, after which the reserve is named).
