Tranquility inspired by nature

Sindile, Shamwari’s new luxury tented camp is a secluded, luxury getaway set deep in the African veld. The camp mimics a solitary leopard’s sanctuary, blending with the surrounding bush while providing excellent vantages over the Bushman’s River and surrounding plains.

The nine luxury free-standing tents are elevated above the surrounding bush, allowing uninhibited views, unsullied by any other man-made structures or light pollution. The harmonious, intimate design minimises the environmental footprint.

The dining area and bar are situated to make the most of the views over the reserve, with focal points including a large harvest table and fire pit.
