Eastern Cape, South Africa


Stay at Kwandwe Melton Manor

With sweeping views of the Afromontane forests, Melton Manor at Kwandwe is a contemporary frontier farmhouse with a modern touch. This sole-use safari villa, where the smallest detail of your stay is planned according to your specific wishes, is perfect for family holidays or parties of friends.

The welcoming U-shape and four ensuite bedrooms are cleverly designed around the central courtyard and its large, inviting swimming pool. Distinctively South African, feature pieces of simple colonial furniture combine with up-sized, deep comfortable sofas whilst subtle game and bush references embrace the local environment.

Your private safari vehicle, complete with team of tracker and ranger, stands at the ready to explore the spectacular wildlife and unmatched scenery of Kwandwe at your leisure.

The interactive farm-style kitchen encourages you to get stuck in and try your hand at combining flavours under the friendly guidance of your expert personal chef, or simply to watch as meals or snacks expertly take shape at your pleasure. Share meals and laughter in the dining room or around the enormous farmhouse table in the fresh air of the terrace. There is also no need to be formal – such delicious fare goes just as well in the

ox wagon boma or at a casual picnic site mid-game drive.

Distinctively South African, feature pieces of simple colonial furniture combine with up-sized, deep comfortable sofas whilst subtle game and bush references embrace the local environment. A calm natural palette gives this contemporary house its character and tone. The use of textured fabrics and hides as well as colour built up in interesting layers along with the use of wood, stone, pewter, ceramic and wicker, and bespoke lamps, mirrors and tables, gives each of the four oversized suites a unique identity.

Melton offers a variety of private spaces and open plan areas for guests young and old to relax and gather in when not out exploring the reserve. Your bedroom offers a private refuge with a large veranda, enormous bed and a butler hatch for unobtrusive morning service. The generous bathtub invites you for a soak and the large windows look out over the sweeping expanse of the bushveld on all sides. Spend the afternoon hours in the library, enjoying a quiet session with a book, or have some fun with the large collection of board games.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
