Shamwari Eagle's Crag
Authentic big game experience accessible by the Garden Route
Shamwari Eagle's Crag
This modern yet bush-stylish lodge is a wilderness away, though easily accessible along South Africa's well traversed Garden Route. Tucked into a deep ravine in the rich Eastern Cape thicket, the lodge cultivates luxury and intimacy while capturing the best of African expansiveness. With a high likelihood of seeing free roaming Big Five and the rare brown hyena, the game viewing rivals any in the region. Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centres allow for close encounters and hands-on participation in conservation. Blending comfort, a big game experience and the highest of conservation ethics, this is truly one of the most well-rounded safari experiences.
At the lodge
Enjoy a large main area with plenty of decks and open terraces to view the towering crags and the night sky. An open dining area, two lounges with fireplaces and a traditional boma, offer a variety of seating for meal-times and in-between relaxation, all year-around. Browse the library or find authentic local souvenirs at the well-curated gift shop. Television and wi-fi access are available. For business travellers there is a business centre and boardroom which can comfortably accommodate eighteen delegates.
Each of the nine tents is nestled into the surroundings, exploiting the seclusion and beauty of the thicket-filled gorge. Watch birds from your private deck or cool off in your own plunge pool. Generous space and ample light give this room its luxurious feel - mod-cons, such as the mini bar and air-conditioning also assist in this regard.
Activities include twice-daily game drives and pre-arranged guided walks with spectacular opportunities to see Africa's iconic wildlife, including elephants and leopard. View a variety of regional birds and plant life - the aloe and acacia species that set this region apart from other safari destinations. Enjoy sundowners in the bush and dinner beneath the stars. Pamper yourself with a host of spa treatments. Learn about the plight of Africa's wildlife and wilderness through one of the many conservation centres.
