Uplands Homestead is a restored farmhouse set in a remote and tranquil valley, available for the sole use of families or parties of up to six.
Accommodation is in three spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and private verandas. Two rooms have bathrooms with a ball and claw bath, and one room has a bathroom with an oval stone bath.
Guests at Uplands Homestead have use of a private 4x4 safari vehicle, butler, chef, and ranger and tracker team.
Safari enthusiasts from around the world visit Kwandwe to view Africa’s famous Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino - but the reserve is home to a wealth of other unique and interesting animals. Twice daily game drives allow guests to explore the diversity of Kwandwe on early morning and late afternoon/evening drives in an open 4x4 safari vehicle. An armed ranger and tracker team will share their extensive knowledge of the bush and will track the Big Five, as well as a variety of other wildlife. As Kwandwe is a private reserve, night drives are a feature and often result in unusual sightings. The reserve is famous for numerous sightings of the rarely spotted porcupine. Both the aardwolf and aardvark are frequently seen on night drives.
Between game drives, guests can take a closer look at the intricate details of the bush on a leisurely walk within easy reach of the lodge. Dense euphorbia thickets are best explored on foot, revealing a secret world of lichen, mosses and ferns. Various birds of prey and other species nest in the taller trees or in the canopy.
