This is not a real And Beyond lodge but only affiliated. In other words don't think about and beyond quality. And that's visible in all aspects, mediocre food, poor care in the rooms, not personal, mediocre game viewing. There are much better , typical and personal lodges in the Eastern cape like Riverbend lodge which has caring and friendly staff in contrast to a anonymous Kwandwe which is overpriced. What struck me most ist that when I complained to And Beyond , they told its not "their" lodge, so why can theymarket it then advertise it under their name? Other traveller experience; with all respect I wonder how much side by side comparisons are done with other top lodges; it seems Kwandwe is a trap for first timers in Africa. Avoid the place and spend money in Pumba , Riverbend, or other nice game lodges around ADDO and avoid this place.

The colour scheme comprises a calm and natural palette of earthy tones, from khaki browns to charcoal greys.Pewter and glass add an effortless yet understated glamour to the furnishings; artefacts such as ostrich eggshells, hides and horns create subtle points of interest and relevance to the lodge's surrounds, whilst natural linens and plenty of texture preserve its simple but sophisticated atmosphere.Watch majestic kudu meander down to the river from the Lodge's expansive viewing decks, or observe playful Cape clawless otters swimming in the cool waters below from the comfort of your private balcony.
