Sarili Lodge at Shamwari Game Reserve




$ 412 (Pps)


Shamwari Sarili Lodge offers the perfect mix of a colonial and bush experience. This environmentally-friendly thatched villa and wraparound deck overlooks the Bushman's River with expansive views over the plains. With just five luxury suites and a child friendly swimming pool, it can also be taken on an exclusive use basis for a family party or group of friends. It lies in the southern part of Shamwari Game Reserve with an easy one hour transfer from Port Elizabeth.

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 (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo) as well as varied antelope and a rich birdlife. This beautiful 25,000ha malaria-free reserve is situated in the verdant bush along the Bushmans River,

The décor of Sarili Lodge emulates an old traditional Farmhouse with interiors that reflect an easy living home lifestyle in a natural environment.

Families at Shamwari Sarili Lodge

Being so small, Sarili Lodge can be taken on an exclusive use basis as a villa so it’s ideal for families or groups of friends. (However you can also take it on a room by room basis as well.) Sarili offers an ideal family safari experience with child-friendly accommodation and a special children's menu. Child minders can also be arranged so that parents can have a romantic safari dinner.

Shamwari offers a special Kids on Safari programme where children from 4 and upwards have a chance of a lifetime to view the Big 5, see special educational films, visit the Born Free Foundation & Shamwari Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre. The Born Free Foundation promotes the conservation of endangered species and the protection of habitat whilst maintaining a compassionate approach to the welfare of animals.
