Five-star accommodation? Check. An authentic experience of the African bush? Check.  A holiday that’s suited for the whole family? Check. At the Shamwari Riverdene Lodge in the Eastern Cape, you’re guaranteed to experience all this – and more.

The 25,000-hectare Shamwari Game Reserve is malaria-free and affords you the chance to see a range of wildlife – including the endangered black rhino. Shamwari’s rangers are well-trained and are brimming with a wealth of knowledge of the area and its animals, thereby ensuring that every open-vehicle game drive is an awe-inspiring experience. The special "Kids on Safari" programme is a great way for the little ones to get in on the action, too.

Accommodation consists of nine Luxury Rooms which can sleep two adults and one child. Six of the rooms come with twin beds and three come with twin beds and sleeper couches. Seven of the rooms are inter-leading, making for a great family stay.
