Great Fish River Lodge
Trip of a Lifetime

Kwandwe Private Game Reserve, South Africa

Great Fish River Lodge

Surrounded by seemingly endless landscape, Great Fish River Lodge is one of South Africa's most unusual high-end safari escapes. As opposed to the somewhat ubiquitous luxury tented camp, this is a lodge in the most solid sense of the word. Stone walls, wooden walkways, and thatch roofs make up the main building and nine private suites, all of which overlook the river where Cape otters swim and graceful kudu come to drink. Oversized fireplaces, colorful woven rugs, yellowwood furnishings, and eclectic antiques lend a frontier style to the place, and private plunge pools and poolside butler service ensure guests feel properly pampered.
