Fantastic place to stay and staff were lovely. Food was amazing. Chase and Siza our ranger and tracker were brilliant. We enjoyed the private feel to the reserve and was lovely to get up and close to the animals, we saw everything apart from the leopard which was a shame. Looking forward to coming back.

Melton Manor is a small 4 room lodge inside the 54,000 acre Kwandwe game reserve. The reserve is home to some 7,000 animals in their natural habitat. The animals are not fed or tracked by Gps so you must search for them with help of your guide and tracker. We saw a vast array of wildlife: Elephants, hippos, lions, leopard,...
