We reserved this place completely unaware it was strictly Islam. Nice game resort, good accommodations, friendly staff but, a strictly "no drinking" policy... If an Islam place opens to the PUBLIC, the drinking policy should be more open.

Kwantu Game Reserve is a unique game experience situated about an hours drive from Port Elizabeth. It envelopes the historic town of Sidbury and there are many remnants of years gone by. The reserve has a very well maintained fleet of Game Drive vehicles and also offers shuttle services to the airport and harbour. The Rangers are well trained and... More

We had a chance to visit two private game reserves. I also went to Kruger park. Kwantu is not the most exclusive park, but at very reasonable price you can see at three hours mor then I see on three days at Kruger. As at all safaris it is better to stay there and go to early morning tour. That... More

We visited for a day trip and didn't regret it. The guide was knowledgeable and considerate, and put all his efforts to try and find all the animals for us. We were lucky to get to hang out with the females on the lion pride and even got to see the rhynos! The price was much better than most Game... More

I was a bit unsure of this experience when I booked it as previous reviews haven't been great. However, I am so glad I did. Despite the organisation seeming poor and disorganised at first once we got to Kwantu Private Game Reserve everything else was well organised. I spent the first few days helping out around the reserve with chores,... More

I was at Kwantu for 3 days around 2 weeks ago with two friends. What really made the experience was the staff who all seemed to enjoy their job! Benjamin was very friendly the whole time we were there. Musa, who served us at our meals, Innocence our game driver and Freedom who took us round the Predator Park. It... More
