After a very tiring, though memorable journey, we finally reached our destination – Kwantu private Animal 🦒 reserve. This beautiful property is located at a distance of around 90 minutes from the Port Elizabeth Airport. The drive was just so beautiful 🤩. The place was just so beautiful and lovely. Loved the vibe. As you pass by you get to see herds of animals, walking and running around in groups all around the place.

We really love wildlife and nature. It’s always so amazing to go to such places and enjoy the scenic landscape and the beauty of nature away from all the hustle and bustle. So coming here was actually a lot more fun.
After we reached, we were greeted well and were offered a traditional welcome drink 🍹followed by which we were shown and taken to our rooms. The rooms here are quite beautiful and they even offer a balcony view to the entire reserve with various animals roaming around if you get through. They are all well trained and so it’s very safe to walk around. You get to choose your rooms and better to pre-book them for a better experience. The prices vary depending on your choice. The room was so spacious. it was a nice homely feel. The best part was the mornings, such a scenic view and nice weather.
