Announcing our new charter flights

We believe in personal and tailored safaris. With one of South Africa’s two private Category 3 Airstrips, Kwandwe Private Game Reserve can cater for aircraft and exclusive jets of varying sizes.

This year, we are excited to announce our new partnership with Absolute Aviation Group. From 1 July 2019, our daily flights between Kwandwe and Port Elizabeth will be managed by our new partners and our capacity for these flights will grow to a maximum of 10 guests per flight (previously 4). This means, FIT and villa guests can now travel together with our daily flights, or make use of private charters.

Absolute Aviation Group will provide additional services to independent aircraft and jet clients making use of Kwandwe’s Category 3 airstrip including: ground handling, flight planning, customs clearance (in CPT or JHB) and dispatch.

With this new partnership, we are one of South Africa’s only two private game reserves offering seamless air charters and daily in-seat flights for the ultimate in personal travel.
