Long Lee Manor
Refined elegance from a bygone era with gracious living.
Long Lee Manor, originally built in 1910, offers a distinctive Colonial experience. This splendidly restored Edwardian Manor House offers guests refined comfort, congenial service and enticing cuisine in the African bush. Sumptuously prepared meals are enjoyed in the main dining room or around the open blazing fire at the Barn. Between game drives guests can laze around one of the two pools, relax in the beautifully appointed garden lounge, or experience a rejuvenating treatment in our spa.
Long Lee Manor is a reminder of an era of gracious living - positioned as the flagship of Shamwari - it overlooks the sweeping plains leading down to the Bushmans River. Our River lapa is a great view point.

As South Africa is in the Southern Hemisphere, the seasons are the opposite to the Northern Hemisphere. With this in mind, our summer months range from mid-September till late-April. In the Eastern Cape of South Africa our winters are mild - they are nothing close to a European or North American winter. During May to August we have moderate days with cool evenings and early mornings. The sun intensity is strong in South Africa and we recommend sun block throughout the year, even if travelling in our winter. In summer, a hat and sunglasses is strongly recommended.
