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.

our stay was a surprise gift, we had been here before, but only on a day game drive. our guide, Branden was excellent, very knowledgeable about the park and the animals and could answer our questions thoroughly. he is an asset to your park, would highly recommend him. the accommodation was excellent as was the meals and staff at the restaurant, we saw everything that we had hope to see, and the elephant experience was very interesting and gave us an insight into their predicament in the wild. would certainly recommend at least an overnight stay at Inkwenkwezi.yours yvonne and davy thomson,...

Branden was our ranger for the 2 night/3 day stay and he absolutely MADE our visit.  He went thecectra mile with his attentiveness,  good humour,  animal knowledge and all round sense of fun.  Nothing was too much trouble for him.  The game drives were full of adventure in "the beast",  Brandens landrover.  Time with the white lions was very special as was an early morning drive. Plenty of yummy food - especially the braaied meat. We ended up with Sunday buffet lunch - a buffet like no other.  So many options.. the roast llamb was the best ever. Inkwenkwezi means star... undoubtedly Branden...
