Shamwari works in conjunction with several organisations, volunteers, and neighbouring game farms to ensure the preservation of animal species. Our programmes aim to rehabilitate orphaned, abused, wrongfully captured, and endangered wildlife and re-release them back into the wild.

A New Baby Elephant

We are very happy to announce that Shamwari Game Reserve has a new elephant calf. The little female calf was born on the 30th of July and is fit and healthy, though still a bit unstable on her feet.

A Little Miracle on Game Drive

As rangers we see a lot of amazing things every day, big and small. Most of the guests don’t pay too much attention to the small things until you point it out to them and educate them about how special it is. In the last few weeks we have had great sightings of some of these smaller things from a cape dwarf chameleon and porcupine to an Addo flightless dung beetle and a serval!

Baby Boom!

We have had a crazy baby boom in the last month. Everywhere you look there is some baby animal running around and trying to find its feet not too far from mommy. With winter over and summer in full swing the bush is lush, with enough food for the antelopes and the other herbivores. A healthy environment signals a good time for the little ones to be had.
