We visited Kwandwe for a brief safari at the end of November 2014 and stayed in the Uplands Homestead. The estate is roughly 1 hour 45 minutes from Port Elizabeth on good roads for the majority of the route. We had a driver which is certainly something we would recommend. From the moment we arrived at the reception we were...

This is a very comfortable lodge for up to 6 adults; must book the whole lodge. We had a great time in this cozy old Dutch style house, very well renovated and comfortable. High level of service and safari guiding.

They achieve this using a staff of 7 people who are fully dedicated to just you and Uplands. The staff live in an adjacent house steps away from Uplands, so they are fully committed to serving you. For instance, the chef, Bongi,...
