What our customers have to say
Fabulous place with wonderful wildlife experiences.
We stayed 4 nights and Long Lee Lodge and enjoyed 8 game drives with the very knowledgeable interesting and friendly ranger. Each game drive was different and really exciting. Back at the lodge, food, service and accommodation were all outstanding. The whole team are warm and friendly, enthusiastic and helpful.This was the end of a fabulous 4 week holiday in South Africa, and was without doubt the highlight of our best ever holiday. We will go back to see the refurbished lodge in 2020.
Our experience at Shamwari was second to none. The team is, without fail, extremely successful in their service and operational skills. Everything was perfect: as this destination formed part of our honeymoon, the team went through special lengths to make it romantic
Just returned from a 2 night stay. Accommodation, staff, service absolutely amazing. 4 safaris during our stay with our ranger was awesome, with enthusiasm, knowledge and huge sense of fun and found us all the big 5 and more. A once in a lifetime experience. Loved it and shall never forget the experience.
What an incredible experience. I'm not one for the typical 'star' rating. The staff, and guides in particular, go above and beyond to make your experience special. The team at Long Lee and Riverdene became part of our family of 22. The team went above and beyond the call of duty. Far more than just a 5 star lodge.
