The Pride of the Eastern Cape, one of the largest malaria free Big 5 private game reserves in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. Shamwari, which means friend in the local Shona language, boasts five eco-systems which support many forms of plant, bird and animal life including the Big 5. Shamwari offers six uniquely styled lodges; some built into their natural surroundings with others, the living memory of settler history plus the Explorer Camp.
Home to one of South Africa’s most experienced wildlife teams with a working Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre which guests may visit, Shamwari also boasts the only Born Free Rescue Centre in the country, a unique ‘kids on safari’ program, bush walks, spa treatments and the option to take part in their very own game ranger school. Shamwari ensures there is something for everyone to learn and experience at this exceptional conservation project.
