ABOUT FORT GOVERNORS
Fort Governor's Estate offers a perfect blend of adventure and relaxation in the heart of the Eastern Cape. Situated just outside Grahamstown and less than an hour's drive from the coast, we are ideally placed to offer our guests an authentic bush experience coupled with day trips to the surrounding areas.
Our 3 lodges are set within an area of over 10 000ha of pristine natural veld, and offer a range of activities and accommodation to suit all travellers.
Barbara Kind bought Fort Governor’s Estate in 2014 with the intention to restore it to a haven for both guests and wildlife. The Estate has now grown into a diverse reserve offering a range of habitats from rolling grassy plains to ravines, lush yellow-wood forests to succulent bush thicket which support a vast array of game species.
All of our lodges were completely renovated and the new Fort Governor’s Estate was officially launched in 2016 offering both local and international guests the chance to experience our slice of magic in the heart of the Eastern Cape.
