Shamwari was the original malaria-free game reserve in the Eastern Cape. And remains at the forefront of conservation in the area. One of Shamwari's strengths is that it lies at the convergence of five ecosystems. And this diversity supports the Big Five as well as varied antelope and a rich bird life. This beautiful 20,000ha malaria-free reserve is situated in the verdant bush along the Bushmans River. Luxury accommodation is offered at six lodges on the reserve, quite diverse in their appearance.

Shamwari Eagles Crag is an avant-garde masterpiece of thatch, stone and glass secretly hidden away in a secluded lush valley in the central part of Shamwari game reserve. This is a stunning gorge setting, surrounded by temperate forest vegetation & looking out onto imposing mountain cliffs & riverbed below. We think that Shamwari Eagles Crag offers the most luxurious accommodation at Shamwari.


Nine luxurious glass and thatch suites all have expansive views of the surrounding gorge. They have been designed so that your privacy is assured even whilst wall to wall glass doors on two sides allow you to open up the suite to the sights and sounds of the bush. Outside is your own private wooden deck. Complete with private plunge pool with views over the densely vegetated kloof where eagles soar.

Each suite has a light and airy feel with contemporary colours and light wood furniture. Facilities include air-conditioning, tea/coffee facilities, safe, telephone, minibar, ceiling fan, bird-spotting telescope and en suite bathroom with both indoor and outdoor showers.
