The Great Fish River Lodge is stylishly furnished in frontier settler style, integrating local African culture with colonial settler history. Elegant thatched stone and glass suites feature floor-to-ceiling doors which fold back to reveal uninterrupted wilderness vistas. Guest areas have a fireplace with massive stone chimney, and a soaring thatched roof.
Sophisticated, glass-fronted sitting and dining areas have large viewing decks with breathtaking river views. Delicious cuisine is served on the private decks, in the candlelit dining room, or enjoyed in the boma. Kwandwe is renowned for its bush banqueting in surprise settings.
Heatherton Towers is the main reception building, which is situated forty minutes from the lodge. It is actually a frontier war-era fortified homestead, complete with dramatic gun turrets and private chapel.
