African Cape Trophy Safaris
It is our pleasure to share with you the Africa we know and love.
Kwantu Private Game Reserve ... The Place of Gathering!
Here a mystical blend of nature and history awaits you. Situated in the heart of malaria free Eastern Cape on the Legendary Sidbury plains a BIG 5 African Adventure begins where you can experience five star hospitality and enjoy the pure tranquility that the reserve has to offer. Home to 5 of the 7 biomes, this untouched wilderness boasts a past as rich as its abundant wildlife population.
On the reserve you can relax in the Day Centre overlooking a watering hole and enjoy traditional African mouthwatering cuisine with a touch of spice.
The reserve is home to the village of Sidbury, built by the British Settlers to support the sheep farming community. Here you will find St Peter's church built in 1838, one of the oldest Anglican churches in South Africa. The village has many tales to tell of the British Settlers whose cries rang out in the 1820's on the plains as they battled Bushmen, Hottentots and the Xhosa tribes to establish a new life in Africa. Weary travelers and locals shared stories of blood curdling encounters with lions, leopards and elephants as they rested at Pollards Inn, the popular stopover on the Wagon route that ran north from Algoa Bay which is now Port Elizabeth. Today in this still quaint village of Sidbury you will find the local cricket team enjoying a gentleman's game on one of the oldest cricket grounds in South Africa.
Kwantu Game Reserve will capture your imagination during your stay and leave you physically and mentally rejuvenated, soulfully inspired and in awe of our magnificent slice of Africa.
Day Trips at Kwantu Private Game Reserve are nothing less than an experience to behold. During your short stay you will experience the Big 5 and the abundance of wild life, birds and flora the reserve has to offer.
