Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

February 6, 2021

One of the greatest gifts Africa offers is the sense of space. At Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge, the vastness of this wild continent is truly all around you. 

Watch a majestic herd of elephants meander down to the river from the expansive viewing decks. Soak in the views from the privacy of your suite’s plunge pool.

The nine luxurious suites have been designed to showcase the spectacular scenery. Floor-to-ceiling framed glass doors, fold back to reveal an uninterrupted wilderness. The ensuite bathrooms, with bath and indoor and outdoor showers, separate loo. Including twin basins offering unmatched views over the sweeping landscape beyond. Keep cool with overhead fans and air conditioning and enjoy a spacious thatched veranda. With a private plunge pool with a terrace in every suite.

Featuring a classic contemporary style of elegance, earthy tones. Great Fish River Lodge oozes romance, tranquility, and solitude.

Twice daily game drives, and nature walks accompanied by an armed ranger. Game walking safaris are all included in your stay. Back at the lodge, several lounging and dining options are available. Delicious African-inspired meals are served in the candlelit dining room or in the boma under a magnificent starlit sky.

If you are planning your honeymoon, Kwandwe offers an idyllic getaway for two. Indulge with a pamper box on arrival, a romantic turndown with sparkling wine, and in-room massage treatments. Unwind in peace and solitude while the African bush stands still.


A honeymooner’s escape, Great Fish River Lodge overlooks the waters of its namesake. With suites flanking the main leisure area via a wooden walkway. Each room is blessed with its own plunge pool, some of which rest just metres from the river itself. The suite’s balcony looks across to the high riverbanks. Where antelope, zebra, and giraffe graze in full view of sublime outdoor showers.

This lodge is spaced out well, ensuring that you have privacy and no light pollution. The sense of isolation and the deep, imposing quiet make stargazing an immersive experience. In-room (or on-balcony) spa treatments for an evening wind-down are the perfect way to end your day on safari.

The food is sublime, beautifully presented, and tasty.  A lot of variety and top stars. Finally, the service was exceptional.  Thank you, Silvia, the assistant manager you made us feel special and so welcome.

I would highly recommend this lodge for a honeymoon couple. Where lovers can escape to the stillness of the beautiful bush, and dine like kings and queens. And enjoy the top 5-star service.

Pure bliss.
