A 5-star family-friendly safari

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 Family Lodge in the Eastern Cape, you’re guaranteed to experience all this – and more.

The 25,000-hectare Shamwari Private 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 luxury rooms which can sleep two adults and one child. Three sets of the rooms are double interleading, while one set is triple interleading - making for a great family stay. All rooms come standard with a private patio, mini-bar, satellite TV, electronic safe, air conditioning and more.
