Shamwari Group


The world renowned Shamwari Group has been a pioneering leader in wildlife safaris, conservation and hospitality for over 20 years.

Mantra of the group is Conserving a Vanishing Way of Life and together with dedicated Wildlife, Conservation and Operational teams at all lodges, they strive to maintain not only a high standard of hospitality and service ethics, but also a superior safari and wilderness experience for all guests.

The group takes its name from the Shona term for ‘friend’ and from the original, award winning Shamwari Game Reserve, situated in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region.

With far-sighted vision and unquenchable passion, the group has grown to include iconic wildlife reserves in South Africa designed to complement their breathtaking surroundings.
