Welcome to Shamwari Game Reserve, the ultimate luxury big five African safari adventure and conservation effort coupled with responsible tourism. Shamwari Private Game Reserve is home to Africas Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard), is malaria free and is situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.
This reserve has received numerous international awards, including the Worlds Leading Conservation Company and Game Reserve for many consecutive years.
Shamwari is about conserving a vanishing way of life and is the realisation of one mans dream, and the success of many peoples passion. Steeped in pioneer history, and dating back to the time when a multitude of game roamed wild and free, the 25 000 hectare reserve boasts five eco-systems, thus enabling the support of many forms of plant, animal and bird life.

After you visit Shamwari Game reserve a wide range of experiences await you in the Eastern Cape Province. We like to think of the Eastern Cape as naturally South Africas best and that there are 9 different tourism Routes.
The Eastern Cape boasts a remarkable natural diversity, ranging from the lush, evergreen Tsitsikamma Forest to the rugged Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area, the southern slopes of the Drakensberg and the arid Great Karoo. It is known as the land of rolling hills, endless sweeps of rocky coves and sandy beaches, towering mountain ranges and verdant forests.
A striking feature of the Eastern Cape is its astonishing coastline, which is a paradise for water sports enthusiasts; surfers ride the perfect waves of the legendary Supertubes of Jeffreys Bay and Cape St Francis, anglers reel in king-size catches, and board sailors revel in the challenge of the wind. Fine leisure resorts and splendid facilities ensure that there is something for every one!
