Shamwari Game Reserve

Long Lee Manor Location Map

Long Lee Manor, originally built in 1910, offers a distinctive colonial experience, and is a reminder of an era of gracious living. Overlooking the sweeping plains leading down to the Bushmans River, this splendidly restored Edwardian manor house in the 25,000 hectare malaria-free Shamwari Game Reserve offers guests refined comfort, congenial service and enticing cuisine in the African bush.

The Shamwari Reserve is home to the Big 5 as well as wild dog, cheetah, hyena, giraffe, hippo, zebra and numerous antelope species, and offers an unforgettable safari experience.

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. The experienced rangers are all in 2-way communication with each other at all times, so on any day they know where the game is, and how to find the elusive animals such as the rare black rhino.

Shamwari has received numerous international awards, including the World's Leading Conservation Company and Game Reserve.

The 15 elegant en-suite bedrooms and suites all have air-conditioning and underfloor heating.

Sumptuously prepared meals are enjoyed in the main dining room or around the open blazing fire at the Barn. A river lapa is another outdoor option for meals.

Between game drives guests can laze around one of the 2 pools or relax in the beautifully appointed garden lounge.

Start TestimonialShamwari Game Reserve: Long Lee Manor. The best! What an experience! Maybe 2 nights would have been enough as we had seen the Big 5 on our first 4 game drives. If we hadn't we would have wanted more but the last 2 drives were very much a repeat of the first 4 drives. Julius, our ranger, was fabulous.End Testimonial

Shamwari - seriously do not think there is anything we could fault - the whole thing was fantastic and we were spoilt rotten - it was just lovely - highly recommend to anyone and worth every penny!
