More About Shamwari


A little more about Shamwari Private Game Reserve


Shamwari Game Reserve has five natural ecosystems that support a diverse array of wildlife including rhino, lion, elephant, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, buffalo, hyena, kudu and many other antelope species and smaller equally fascinating creatures. Birdlife and indigenous flora complete a spellbinding story of life from the smallest organism to the largest beast and your personal ranger will be with you every step of the way to tell you about it.

While the resident ecologists win awards for their work in the field, the several luxury lodges on the reserve win awards for their quality. Shamwari Lobengula Lodge is a den of African-themed comfort deep in the bush; Shamwari Bushmans River Lodge is a restored Victorian homestead overlooking the river; Shamwari Riverdene Lodge has an 1820 settlers' theme and a relaxed atmosphere; Shamwari Bayethe Lodge is a riverside lodge and its ten luxurious tented suites are shaded by a deep canopy of trees; Shamwari Eagles Crag has an exciting contemporary style and the luxury and seclusion are complete; Shamwari Long Lee Manor is a gracious hotel-like lodge in a restored Edwardian homestead with unparalleled levels of service and facilities. Shamwari Game Reserve is close to Port Elizabeth making it a natural extension to your Garden Route and Cape Town holiday.
