Set in thick vegetation overlooking a dense valley, Ecca Lodge offers views onto an escarpment of steep shale cliffs. The lodge is located in a malaria-free game reserve, and features a sitting room with fireplace, dining room and bar area, open interactive kitchen and a gorgeous rim-flow lap pool. Children of all ages are welcome and complimentary child-minding services are available. Complimentary Wifi is also available.

We love this as a last stop after traveling the Garden Route.

Kwandwe Ecca is set in a 54,000 acre private wilderness with one of the highest land to guest ratios in South Africa, with plenty of game including black & white rhino, elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard, cheetah, wildebeest, and more. You might even catch a glimpse of an aardwolf.
