Continue on the N2 until you reach a sign board for Shamwari Private Game Reserve and turn left towards Paterson on the R342.
Travel 4km up the gravel road and enter at the Shamwari Private Game Reserve Born Free gate for Sarili Private Lodge.
On arrival at the lodge, you are going to be met by Shamwari representatives who are going to assist you with your luggage. They will show you your room, a Luxury Courtyard Room.
At Sunset, you will go on your first game drive. The game drives themselves last for approximately three to four hours and take you through the reserve. Included on the game drive is a coffee stop for the morning drive and a sundowner stop in the afternoon. Unfortunately, no children under the age of 4 are permitted on the game drives; however, we can arrange a childminder at an additional cost.
Pack your binoculars, cameras, warm clothing, sunscreen and hat
After breakfast, you are going for your early morning game drive.
Game drives take place in the tranquil moods of sunrise and sunset. Survey the areas, witness the birds of prey or spot one of the Big 5 from the comfort and safety of our open game viewing vehicles. Our rangers and guides are passionate about wildlife and knowledgeable in their respective fields of expertise. Expect to take away new insights, an appreciation for Africa, and an unforgettable experience.
Our game viewing drives are available for morning and afternoon trips, as this is when the animals are most active. Our vehicles are open and comfortable and give you a panoramic view of the area.
If you have a particular area of interest, you’re welcome to inform your guide who will include it along the journey, if possible.
In addition to spectacular game drives, Shamwari Private Game Reserve also offers professionally guided bush walks. Our rangers share their intimate knowledge of the reserve and their own expert insights to make each natural encounter a special event. Here, you can gain a true perspective of the fauna and flora indigenous to the region. Your guide can also point out animal tracks, dung, birds and can educate you on the area and its rich history.
You may see a herd of wild buffalo, but the tiny oxpeckers on their backs are the real conservation success. If you want a true walking safari experience, you can stay at Explorer Camp where the focus is on bush walks rather than game drives.
After breakfast, you will get ready to vacate your suite. The representative of the lodge will assist you with your luggage to your vehicle for your drive back to the airport or home. The distance from the Oceana Beach and Wildlife is approximately 1 hour 54 minutes. Safe journey driving home.
