Ecca Lodge offers an indoor-outdoor lifestyle embracing the African wilderness. Set in the heart of the Private Reserve in thick vegetation overlooking a dense valley, the lodge offers breath-taking views onto an escarpment of steep shale cliffs. A highlight of the main guest ares is a wooden viewing deck that showcases the exceptional views.
The nearest national airport is in Port Elizabeth, which lies 160 km (100 miles) from the reserve. There are daily scheduled flights from both Cape Town and Johannesburg international airports to Port Elizabeth. From there, it is 2 hours by road to Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. The reserve also has a private airstrip; please enquire for details on charter flights and GPS coordinates.
With only 6 suites, 3 of which are dedicated to families, the lodge is intimate, relaxed and trendy, with decor inspired by the vibrant colours and textures of the African people. The double suites can accommodate 2 adults each and the family suites accommodate 2 adults and 2 children (under 16 yrs on day beds in the lounge). Family suites also include a private vehicle and ranger. All rooms have private plunge pools and outdoor showers to enhance the connection with nature.
All guests at Ecca can enjoy twice daily game drives, nature walks and big game walking safaris. Guests in family suites are allocated a private guide and vehicle. At the lodge, a play centre for kids keeps little hands busy for hours and a shared lodge pool provides the perfect place for a communal splash. Additional family activities include kite building, board games, scavenger hunts and more.
