Lobengula will leave guests lingering

Styled after a traditional African kraal (several thatched huts enclosed by a fence), Lobengula Lodge is tucked away in a valley in the 25,000ha Shamwari Private Game Reserve. This malaria-free safari destination boasts the Big 5, the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuary and is little over an hour’s drive from Port Elizabeth Airport.

When not enjoying twice-daily game drives in hot pursuit of the Big 5, guests can enjoy walking safaris, picnic lunches in the bush or sundowners at resplendent viewpoints. 

With only six Junior Suites; three poolside Junior Suites; two Junior Suites with a private plunge pool; and the Chief Suite boasting a plunge pool, lounge, and indoor fireplace; guests can rest assured that the villa’s attention to detail is unparalleled. All suites feature air conditioning, an en-suite bathroom, private patio, minibar, and international adaptors and telephones.
