South African Dream
South Africa - Garden Route and Karoo
HOTEL CATEGORY: luxury private reserve - five stars
In our opinion, this the best reserve along the Garden Route!

After you visit Shamwari Game reserve a wide range of experiences await you in the Eastern Cape Province. We like to think of the Eastern Cape as naturally South Africa’s best and that there are 9 different tourism Routes.
The Eastern Cape boasts a remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to the rugged Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, the southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo. It is known as the land of rolling hills, endless sweeps of rocky coves and sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges and verdant forests.
A striking feature of the Eastern Cape is its astonishing coastline, which is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts; surfers ride the perfect waves of the legendary Supertubes of Jeffreys Bay and Cape St Francis, anglers reel in king-size catches, and board sailors revel in the challenge of the wind. Fine leisure resorts and splendid facilities ensure that there is something for everyone!
Luxury accommodation is offered in 6 different lodges at Shamwari Game Reserve, all of which are 5 Star graded. Choose a lodge that perfectly complements your ideal African experience.
