Shamwari Game Reserve
Sarili Lodge provides the perfect combination between a colonial and bush experience, and is located in the award winning Shamwari Game Reserve, a 25,000 hectare, malaria-free, private game reserve situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
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.
Shamwari prides itself on the knowledge and professionalism of their rangers, and guests will receive personal attention from their assigned ranger for the duration of their stay.
Game viewing is carried out morning and evening on game drives, when you are driven in your open vehicle over the rolling hills and valleys in search of the wildlife.
There is also the option to go on a guided bush walk with your ranger after breakfast.
Sarili Lodge has 5 en-suite rooms in total - 2 luxury rooms with a balcony, 2 that open out onto a patio, and a suite. All the rooms have air-conditioning and a private minibar, as well as tea and coffee making facilities.
There is a main viewing deck that overlooks the Bushmans River, and there is also a heated swimming pool with a shallow area for children. The main guest lounge area has a fire place and satellite television.
