What our customers have to say
The lodge and individual villas had just recently undergone a magnificent redo of the decor,
and we were privileged to experience the beauty of it all. Everything was so tastefully done,
would comfortably grace the cover of Architectural Digest. Service was impeccable, from the
greeting at the front desk, the gracious bar and restaurant staff, to the young men who would
politely accompany us to our villa at night. Our assigned ranger was simply the best.
Time of our lives at Eagles Crag. Stunning accommodation and if you’re lucky sometimes the elephants come right up to your plunge pool. We saw 4/5 of the big 5 on just our first game drive. The staff to were so accommodating going above and beyond. Thanks for making our honeymoon so special x
Wow! Simply amazing, fantastic, stunning, first class & unforgettable! There are not enough positive words to describe Shamwari. The staff are friendly, professional, thoughtful & kind. The accommodation at Eagles Crag is beautiful & the food & drink excellent. Best of all the animals are just wonderful. Our ranger ensured we saw as many animals as possible. Thank you for such a magical, memorable & emotional experience at Shamwari. I'm saving up for my next visit!
Most Incredible Experience
Visited Shamwari for our honeymoon and were amazed at how incredible the entire experience was. We stayed at Eagle’s Crag lodge, which was recently renovated, and words cannot accurately describe how beautiful it is. The food was absolutely fantastic. The game drives were the most exhilarating part of our trip to South Africa, as a whole. We’re now lifelong fans, and I’m willing to bet that you will be, too, if you go.
