Here a mystical blend of nature and history awaits you. Situated in the heart a malaria free Eastern Cape on the Legendary Sidbury Plains a BIG 5 African Adventure begins where you can experience five star hospitality and enjoy the... more pure tranquility that the reserve has to offer. Home to 5 of the 7 biomes, this untouched wilderness boasts a past as rich as its abundant wildlife population. On the reserve you can relax in the Day Centre overlooking a watering hole and enjoy traditional African mouthwatering cuisine with a touch of spice. Luxury accommodation to suit your style is available in either the hotel named after Pollards INN or one of the 5 lodges. The reserve is home to the village of Sidbury, built by the British Settlers to support the sheep farming community. Here you will find St Peter's church built in 1838, one of the oldest Anglican churches in South Africa. The village has many tales to tell of the British Settlers whose cries rang out in the 1820's on the plains as they battled Bushmen, Hottentots and the Xhosa tribes to establish a new life in Africa. Weary travellers and locals shared stories of blood curlding encounters with lions, leopards and elephants as they rested at Pollards INN the popular stopover on the Wagon route that ran north from Algoa Bay now Port Elizabeth. Today in this still quaint village of Sidbury you will find the local cricket team enjoying a gentleman's game on one of the oldest cricket grounds in South Africa. Kwantu Game Reserve will capture your imagination during your stay and leave you physically and mentally rejuvenated, soulfully inspired and in awe of our magnificient slice of Africa. From the comfort of our specially equipped open Land Rovers, you encounter the impressive BIG 5 roaming freely on the Sidbury plains. Here the white rhino, monarchs of the African bush roam the plains as freely as they did hundred of years ago. Delight in the entertaining squabbles and games of the playful Vervet monkeys or Chacma baboons, the original comedians of the wild! Indulge your fascination as you stumble upon a family of warthog, digging for roots or speeding across the lains with their trademark “tails held high”. You’ll be awestruck by our zebra, giraffe, wildebeest, and many of the common and rare antelope who have roamed these plains for centuries. From the delicate solitary Blue duiker, who melts out of the brush at the edge of a clearing, to the towering kudu bull, who fixes his gaze on you as he browses nearby. At night the porcupine, aardwolf,caracal, and other nocturnal explorers and predators patrol the silent, inky darkness. The Undisputed King of Jungle, African Lions (Panthera leo) are in the order Carnivora, and the family Felidae. Lions and other big cats such as leopards, jaguars, etc, are in the genus Panthera. African lions are sometimes nomadic and range in the area of around 1,600 square miles. The average male lion is around 1.7 to 2.5m in length, standing approximately 1.2m at the shoulder. Lions are communal animals, living in prides of around 15 to 20 individuals. Cheetahs (Acynonix jubatus) are among the worlds' fastest land animals, capable of speeds of over 100km an hour, using it's long tail for balance while running. Cheetahs roam over vast territories, and the males do not defend their areas. Cheetahs live in open country, from savannah to desert. The cheetah is reminiscent of a dog, in that its claws are not fully retractable. With over 250 different species of birds to serenade you, the Kwantu bush is an orchestra of sounds, colour and form that even the novice bird lover will marvel at... From the gorgeous Narina Trogon, to the loved loerie. From the regal Kingfishers, to the evening owl. Sunbirds, eagles, the kites, and water fowl. You cannot help but to be charmed. And with the expert knowledge of our guides; soon you marvel their intriguing and often quirky habits. The rich colours, scents and textures of the animals and birds are mirrored in the fascinating plant life at Kwantu Private Game Reserve. The vegetation represents a world of wonder - with almost 150 documented indigenous species of plants. Even the trees, thorns, grasses and shrubs have a unique story which our rangers will explain to you.  These are only but a few of the animals and birds that Kwantu has to offer. Come and visit us to experience true nature…
