Shamwari, home to the coveted Big Five and the crown jewel of private game reserves, offers an unsurpassed nature experience. Situated close to Port Elizabeth, in the malaria-free Eastern Cape province of South Africa, Shamwari Game Reserve is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa. Seven luxury lodges each offer a distinctive ambiance and exclusive spa experience against the backdrop of untamed Africa. Explore 25 000 hectares of prime wildlife terrain through interactive game drives or visit the Born Free Animal Rescue and Education Centre.

Of the seven lodges we personally recommend Eagles Crag, which is nestled in a valley and provides the ultimate luxury for the most discerning of travellers. Each of the nine superior rooms has been built to maximize the privacy of the guest in the most tranquil of settings. The en-suite suites boast a private deck with pool, as well as, indoor and outdoor showers. Decorated in light and contemporary colours, with wall-to-wall glass doors on two sides, these suites provide stunning views of the surrounding cliffs. The luxury spa offers a wide variety of personalized treatments. The upper floor dining room and lounge, and ground floor library, lounge and cocktail bar, all further compliment the guests “African bushveld experience”.

Shamwari is about conserving a vanishing way of life and is the realisation of one man’s dream, and the success of many people’s passion. Steeped in pioneer history, and dating back to the time when a multitude of game roamed wild and free, the 25 000 hectare reserve boasts five eco-systems, thus enabling the support of many forms of plant, animal and bird life. Shamwari is situated in verdant bush along the Bushmans River, halfway between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, a pleasant drive from Cape Town and forms a natural extension to the famous Garden Route. It is the perfect destination for anyone trying safari for the first time.
Prices from £660 per person per night fully inclusive at Eagles Crag on twin share basis.
