Shamwari Game Reserve

Shamwari Game Reserve

Shamwari, situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, is one of the few malaria-free game reserves. With five eco-systems and an enormous conservation effort, it enables the reserve to host an incredible variety of animals and birds.

The range of animals to be found here is uncommon elsewhere - more than 18 antelope species and over 250 bird species are documented. Lobengula Lodge boasts a true five star safari experience. All five suites are en suite, with air conditioning and under floor heating, whilst the Chief Suite boasts a private lounge and fireplace along with a private plunge pool. After a game drive, relax in the wellness centre, take a swim or enjoy a drink at the pool bar or from the extensive wine cellar.

Eagles' Crag Lodge sleeps 18 guests in nine detached Junior Suites. Constructed with local rock in an African thatch style, it blends beautifully with its environment. Plunge pools on private decks, outdoor boma dinners, a wellness centre and a large lounge with fireplace are all featured.

Long Lee Manor provides further excellent accommodation and a splendidly restored Edwardian Manor House, with a restaurant, bar and lounge and two swimming pools, while Riverdene Lodge welcomes families.

Traditional African cooking complemented by fine South African wines can be enjoyed at all the lodges as can stunning vistas from all dining areas.
