Inkwenkwezi is a world-class private game reserve on the Wild Coast, that offers unrivaled Big Five game-viewing opportunities in this breathtaking part of the Eastern Cape. The reserve incorporates five different vegetation biomes, and this diversity of the landscape makes wildlife viewing unparalleled with any reserve on the Wild Coast.

Famously, the reserve is home to a pride of White Lions. The lions have a special place in the reserve, with the parents having been hand-reared by the owners of the reserve. Currently, the reserve is hand-rearing six new white lion cubs, which were brought in from another reserve, in order to strengthen the gene pool of the lions within the reserve.

However, the lions are only one of the plentiful species of magnificent African wildlife in the reserve. The reserve offers daily game drives for visitors to enjoy a chance to view the spectacular wildlife here. For those wanting a truly personal encounter with one of Africa’s most majestic creatures, visit the Elephant Sanctuary here, where you can touch, smell, feed and talk to the elephants.

For active visitors, the reserve also offers guided, hiking, quad-biking, mountain biking, horseback and canoe tours. Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve
