Shamwari Game Reserve


Sarili Lodge Location Map

Sarili Lodge provides the perfect bush experience, and is located in the Southern region of the award winning Shamwari Private Game Reserve, a 25,000 hectare, malaria-free, private game reserve situated in the Eastern Cape.

Shamwari is about conserving a vanishing way of life, and has received numerous international awards, including the World's Leading Conservation Company and Game Reserve. Steeped in Settler history, and dating back to the time when a multitude of game roamed wild and free, the reserve is home to the Big 5 as well as wild dog, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, hippo, zebra and numerous antelope species.

Game viewing is carried out morning and evening on game drives when the wildlife is most active. The vehicles are open and comfortable, and give you a panoramic view of the area. You’ll be guided by a trained game ranger who’ll take you through the reserve, encountering many animals along the way. The game drives themselves last for approximately 3 to 4 hours and included on the game drive is a coffee stop for the morning drive and a sun-downer stop in the evening.

There is also the option to go on a guided bush walk with your ranger after breakfast.
