What our customers have to say
We absolutely loved this reserve. Worth every penny...and then some. We stayed at
Lobengula Lodge which was very secluded and private. Perfect if you are coming with a
group and using all the rooms or for a romantic getaway. The staff was outstanding and we
loved our ranger.
What an amazing place! We spent 3 nights at Lobengula Lodge and had an incredible experience. All of the staff were so friendly and went out of their way to make our stay so special. The food and accommodation was wonderful. Our ranger was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and made sure we saw as much as possible and we learnt a lot from him. We didn’t want to leave! We wish we could give it more stars!
Welcomed like family, Looked after like royalty!
Our stay at Shamwari was a dream. We spent just over three days at the Lobengula lodge for our honeymoon. The lodge itself was wonderful. Luxurious yet comfortable with a distinct South African charm. Professional and courteous, and every staff member from the gardener to the lodge manager greeted you and made you feel welcome. Cannot recommend Shamwari highly enough. A great destination for animal lovers and a perfect place for a honeymoon.
