Shamwari Game Reserve
Elegance in the wilderness with a colonial african experience to remeber.
The two elegantly furnished casual lounges and glorious sunroom, as well as a magnificent rim flow swimming pool entice guests to relax and restore their energies.
The lounge opens onto a spacious outdoor barbecue area. As with all the lodges at Shamwari, guests receive personal attention from their assigned rangers for the duration of their stay.
We are currently completing a new Magnificent boma overlooking the Bushmans River.

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.
