About Shamwari Game Reserve


Shamwari, meaning “my friend” in Shona, is the pinnacle of game reserves and home to the coveted Big five on one of the largest privately owned and run conservation initiatives in Southern Africa.

Shamwari is a place where guests can exist in harmony with nature, however fleeting the moment; where free-roaming wildlife traipse the landscape, often under the relentless African sun.

Shamwari Game Reserve’s hospitality division incorporates seven, five star lodges, each one with its own unique essence of Africa.

The lodges are designed and operate in harmony with their surroundings and are a place where guests can experience nature in sublime comfort.
