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 kilometres 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 four of the big five and a variety of antelope as well as giraffe, zebra & other predators. 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 game reserve features a Bush Camp, consisting of six two-person lavish en-suite safari tents and the Valley Camp offering 12 guests accommodation in six custom designed luxury tents. For meal times, Inkwenkwezi offers guests the finest dining options. Have an elegant African dining experience at the Emthombeni Restaurant or indulge in a culinary delight at the Sunset Lapa.

Visitors to Inkwenkwezi are given the opportunity to enjoy a range of activities, including game drives, bird watching including the rarely sighted Stanley Bustard as well as Knysna Turaco and Kingfisher to mention only a few of the 276 bird species that has been recorded here, all in the company of a trained guide, who has the knowledge and passion of the African Bush. Alternatively, enjoy relaxing around the pool.

He will also pick you up and take you for meals in the restaurant (unless you fancy walking and passing...

It was worth the money! Elephant experience, cheetahs and white lions. Ashley, our guide, went out of her way to make us comfortable during our short stay. Tents were comfortable during the high temperatures we experienced. We will definitely be back!
