About Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve

Inkwenkwezi is situated in the malaria free Eastern Cape of South Africa. The reserve is situated within an area of one hundred square kilometers encompassing five different biomes (vegetation types) which offer varied game viewing. It is one of the few reserves with a tidal estuary.

The reserve has the big five and a variety of antelope as well as giraffe, zebra and other animal species. The reserve is five minutes from magnificent beaches and a 40 minute drive from a national airport. Driving to Inkwenkwezi is a pleasure as the roads are tarred right to the entrance.


The Bush Camp offers accommodation for twelve guests in six en-suite safari tents. All tents have electric lights, twin beds with Cloud 9 mattresses, electric blankets, slatted headboards, bedside tables and bedside lamps, bedside mats, telephones, chest of drawers.

The en-suite bathrooms feature a shower, (hot and cold water) which is crafted to resemble a cave and blends with the natural rock and bush of the area. From its hilltop site the camp overlooks a valley & each safari tent is positioned on a raised timber deck offering a private game viewing. On the elevated timber deck guests are able to relax on two easy chairs with a picnic table.

The Valley Camp offers twelve guests accommodation in six custom designed luxury tents with the emphasis on spaciousness and quality. The tents are positioned on individual timber decks and situated in a valley nestled amongst the indigenous trees. The bathrooms are fitted with both a slipper bath and a four-sided glass shower (hot and cold water) a vanity unit (drawers underneath) with a hand basin as well as a hanging area for clothing. All finishes are of a high quality.

Tents are furnished with twin three quarter beds (one tent has a Queen-size bed) all with Cloud 9 mattresses, electric blankets and Percale linen. Headboards are trimmed with brass and have bedside tables and lamps as well as a matching dresser, 2 leather easy chairs and a butlers tray. The Valley Camp also has an air conditioner to cool the room or heat in the winter. The partially covered outside deck is large and has 2 easy chairs with a picnic table.

Facilities at both camps

Guests at both the Valley Camp and the Bush Camp have tea and coffee making facilities offering a variety of different teas. All tents have 3 roofs, the inside roof has ventilation flaps to control the temperature, the second roof is for water proofing and the outside roof is used for shade and also helps moderate the temperature. All tents have insect mesh on all openings.


The Emthombeni restaurant offers an elegant African dining experience complemented by authentic African decor. High thatched roofs blend with the rich stone flooring creating the ambience of a mysterious & exciting Africa. Meals can be enjoyed inside the restaurant or on the elevated timber viewing deck with glimpses of the Indian Ocean & the African bush. Open every Wednesday evening for our famous Burger nights and Sundays for our Sunday lunch buffet.

The Sunset Lapa is hewn from the rocks of the area & covered in thatch. It is set on a majestic hillside with wonderful views of the African sunset. The Lapa has an informal lounge area where a stock of books and games are kept; there is also an indoor fireplace for the colder evenings as well as an open air fire for guests to gather around.
