Your Voyage Highlights


A safari experience features highly on most people’s bucket list and there is only one option when choosing where to stay and that’s at the Shamwari Private Game Reserve.

Shamwari, meaning “my friend” in Shona, is the pinnacle of private game reserves and home to the coveted Big 5. Stretching 25,000 hectares over a malaria free landscape, it offers an award-winning nature experience and is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa.

This ultimate African adventure stretches along the Bushman’s River, halfway between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, and forms a natural extension to the famous Garden Route and Cape Town.

When you visit Shamwari Private Game Reserve, you will experience the ‘safari of a lifetime’. The Shamwari team will assign a personal expert ranger to your group of between six and 10 people on your open 4x4 game vehicle. Your game ranger and lodge manager will design your daily game viewing programme with you.

Shamwari is a place where guests can exist in harmony with nature, however fleeting the moment, where wildlife freely roam the landscape under the African sun


Shamwari Safari Conservation

Shamwari Private Game Reserve is situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, an area that was historically rich in wildlife. Many species were eradicated by means of hunting or farming practices. During the past 25 years, pristine and agricultural land was consolidated and rehabilitated. Remaining wild animal species were allowed to increase in numbers and species locally extinct were reintroduced.

Experienced Staff & Anti-Poaching Units

Experienced veterinary staff, qualified ecologists and some of the most advanced anti-poaching units in the country, are responsible for the management of the Shamwari ecosystem.

Vegetation & Animal Monitoring

Intensive vegetation monitoring is complemented with sophisticated monitoring of threatened animal species such as the leopard, black rhino and brown hyena.

Animal Translocation & Husbandry Facilities

The Shamwari Wildlife Department is well-equipped with animal translocation and husbandry facilities. This ensures successful and humane transfers of excess animals to other reserves, to preserve their genetic biodiversity.
