Luxury Holidays At Shamwari Private Game Reserve

A superb beginning or finale to your Garden Route holiday, Shamwari Private Game Reserve has been acclaimed as the 'World's Leading Conservation Company and Game Reserve' for over ten consecutive years. Home to the 'Big Five', it also encompasses no fewer than five different eco-systems, allowing for an extraordinary diversity of plants, animals and birdlife. Almost as diverse is the choice of luxurious guest accommodation, including the stylish and secluded Eagles Crag Lodge - nestled amongst lush mountain cliffs; the contemporary Sarili Lodge, offering a superb bush experience, a heated swimming pool with shallow area and a spacious deck overlooking Bushmans River and the plains, plus Riverdene Lodge - ideal for families with interconnecting rooms and a magnificent Outdoor Adventure Centre. The specially-designed family accommodation includes a swimming pool with shallow area for children, and 'Kids on Safari' programme. Having celebrated their 25th anniversary in 2017, Shamwari Private Game Reserve is undergoing a period of enhancement and will continue to evolve — in a stylish fashion with conservation always at the fore.

Property Highlights:expand_more

Take an unforgettable trip through the game reserve on an intimate guided game-drive and witness the incredible wildlife to create memories to last a lifetime. Whether you choose an early-morning or evening drive, examine the land in search of the 'Big Five' or witness the birds of prey in the safety of an open game vehicle. With rangers so passionate about the wildlife, coupled with their knowledge, you are guaranteed to have a remarkable safari experience that leaves you with new insights and a greater appreciation for Africa and wildlife.

Wildlife Encounters

Shamwari is passionate about wildlife conservation, so join them for a once-in-a-lifetime experience to engage and educate yourself with one of their awareness centres. Take a trip to the Ian Player Rhino Centre to discover the stark truths about the plight of the depleting rhino species and what they do to help or visit the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuary, which provides public awareness and rescue efforts over the circumstances of confining wild animals in impoverished, captive environments. Encounter the passionate on-site vets at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, who care and treat injured animals that are then released back into the wild.


Shamwari Game Reserve is located in a malaria-free area and welcomes children of all ages at its Riverdene Lodge, where activities might include social events, sports, arts and cultural activities, supervised by the lodge's Children's Coordinator who, upon guests' arrival, will discuss activity options, taking into consideration the size of the family, the children's ages and also the weather. Children are also welcome to participate in Shamwari's 'Kids on Safari' programme. Children's menus are also available. Sarili Lodge is an alternative option for families, but it does not have a dedicated Children's Coordinator.

Spa & Wellness

Guests at Eagles Crag Lodge enjoy the facilities of the Relaxation Retreat, which comprises a hydro bath, steam room and a sauna. 


Shamwari Game Reserve presents a fabulous wedding venue in the heart of South Africa's premier safari destination.


The expert concierge team can arrange for special family safari experiences.
