Nestled in the heart of the malaria free Eastern Cape, in the northern region of the 22,000 hectare Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, is Ecca Lodge. One of four luxury safari lodges/houses within this reserve, this funky lodge is blessed with breathtaking views over the acacia, aloe and spekboom-studded valleys onto an escarpment of steep shale cliffs. A child friendly lodge, Ecca communal areas include a spacious sitting room with a fireplace, small study, dining room, bar area, deep verandah with expansive viewing deck, a swimming pool, children’s play centre and child minding services (additional cost).
All of the Suites are airy and open, with barely a barrier between the indoors and the African bush. Six spacious suites feature bedrooms with ensuite bathroom, indoor and outdoor shower, separate w.c, twin hand basin, large veranda and a private deck and plunge pool. Interior design reflects natural textures in hues of burnt aloe orange, rust and olive. Furnishings combine clean, contemporary sofas with venerable old collectables from the area.
Delicious Pan-African cuisine is served on the private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or enjoyed in the boma (outdoor dining area).
Guests can enjoy game drives/safari, and bush walks. Animals you can see include white rhino, black rhino, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, and many more. There are also wonderful activities families with children can enjoy.
