Eastern Cape Game and Nature ReservesThe Kwantu Game Reserve
Kwantu Private Game Reserve offers Africa's Big 5, an elephant sanctuary, endangered and exotic wildlife. This untouched wilderness boasts a past as rich as its abundant wildlife population.
From the comfort of specially equipped open Land Rovers, you encounter the impressive white rhino as these monarchs of the African bush roam the plains as freely as if hundred of years ago.
Delight in the entertaining squabbles and games of the playful Vervet monkeys or Chacma baboons, the original comedians of the wild! Indulge your fascination as you stumble upon a family of warthog speeding across the plains with their trademark “tails held high”.
You’ll be awestruck by zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and many of the common and rare antelope who have roamed these plains for centuries. From the delicate solitary Blue duiker, who melts out of the brush at the edge of a clearing, to the towering kudu bull, who fixes his gaze on you as he browses nearby.
At night the porcupine, aardwolf, caracal, and other nocturnal explorers and predators patrol the silent, inky darkness. The adventurer may even be treated to the thrilling sight of a leopard.
With over 250 different species of birds to serenade you, the Kwantu bush is an orchestra of sounds, colour and form that even the novice bird lover will marvel at, from the gorgeous Narina Trogon, to the loved loerie.
From the regal Kingfishers, to the evening owl to Sunbirds, eagles, the kites, and water fowl. You cannot help but to be charmed. And with the expert knowledge of our guides; soon you marvel their intriguing and often quirky habits. The rich colours, scents and textures of the animals and birds are mirrored in the fascinating plant life at Kwantu Private Game Reserve.
