Relax in luxury and relish a truly unforgettable safari experience at the Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. The pinnacle of private conservation, spectacular Shamwari, meaning “my friend” in Shona, is an incredible place where wildlife roams freely and where you can bask in the glory of nature in both luxury and style.
Shamwari’s stunning 25,000 hectares are home to an extraordinary variety of animal species, drive through the wild and see Africa’s famed ‘Big Five’, on a spectacular game viewing drive in the comfort and safety of Shamwari’s open game view vehicles.
Expect to take away new insights from Shamwari’s expert rangers and guides, as well as plenty of other flora and fauna that inhabit this amazing game reserve.
In collaboration with the Born Free Foundation, Shamwari Private Game Reserve is home to two unique sanctuaries, where you can learn more about the plight of both wild cats and rhinos in captive environments across the world. There’s also the brand new Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, where Shamwari’s passionate team will tell you more about how they care for young, injured and abandoned animals that are to be re-released back into the wild.
Each one of Shamwari’s newly refurbished 5* lodges are individually decorated and designed with their own distinctive charm. Eagles Crag offers the ultimate indulgence, whilst the Riverdene is great for those travelling with little ones, as it has a supervised playroom, jungle gym, swimming pool and comfortable areas for parents to relax. If you prefer to go roaming, the Explorer Camp offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with guided walking safaris across the reserve’s trails, allowing you to get up close and personal with your surroundings. For those looking for ultra-luxury, Sindile, Shamwari’s new luxury tented camp is a secluded getaway set deep in the African veld due to open in December 2019.
“From the moment you arrive the décor, grounds, rooms, food and beverage and atmosphere are all perfect here. The safari itself is an experience everyone should encounter in their life and if I could give it 10 stars I would.”
