Luxury Kwandwe Private Game Reserve in South Africa

African-Safari-Holidays-Adelto-05

Kwandwe Private Game Reserve is a world class reserve situated in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region, which reopened Melton Manor as an exclusive use villa for the ultimate African safari holiday.
The luxury new African private game reserve has placed emphasis on comfort, spaciousness and easy living. The refurbishment has seen the lodge transformed into an elegant yet laid-back safari home for guests seeking privacy and seclusion.

Remarkable attention to detail has been incorporated into the new décor to reflect the splendour of Melton Manor’s remote location and the scale of the surrounding landscape. Distinctively South African, feature pieces of simple colonial furniture have been sourced from across the Eastern Cape, up-sized deep comfortable sofas custom made whilst subtle game and bush references have been added throughout to embrace the local environment.

In contrast to the previous design a calm natural palette has been used to give this contemporary house its character and tone. Furthermore, the use of textured fabrics and hides as well as wood, stone, pewter, ceramic and wicker, along with bespoke lamps, mirrors and tables gives each of the four oversized suites a unique identity.

This luxury African lodge offers a variety of private spaces and open plan areas for guests young and old to relax and gather in when not out exploring the reserve: loungers on private decks for afternoon snoozes between safari excursions; covered and uncovered verandahs and decks for good weather dining and to gather and recount the day’s excitements; an interactive kitchen leading onto a dining area for cookery activity; a spacious lounge with handcrafted furniture and sofas to snuggle up on during cooler evenings, and a swimming pool with sunbeds for relaxation and sun worshiping.

In keeping with its pristine wilderness setting, Melton Manor offers a magnificent whole-house experience for families and groups to enjoy themselves – and each other’s company.  As a guest you also have the use of a private 4×4 safari vehicle, ranger and tracker as well as a butler and chef – what more could you ask for on a luxury safari holiday?

There are daily scheduled flights from both Johannesburg and Cape Town international airports to Port Elizabeth’s national airport. A chauffeur-driven road transfer can be arranged on request.
