Shamwari Eagles Crag provides an exclusive Big Five safari experience in the Eastern Cape.
Eagles Crag Lodge is the finest of the lodges located in the Shamwari Private Game Reserve. The reserve is home to no less than five of the seven biomes found in South Africa. Its location close to the Garden Route make a South Africa safari at Shamwari a natural choice for those seeking to combine a tour of the Garden Route with a luxury Big Five safari.
The lodge is nestled in a valley and offers discerning guests the ultimate in terms of luxury in an inspiring setting. The nine superior rooms have been positioned with privacy in mind. Each room offers all the conveniences which would be expected at a lodge of this caliber. It also offers a few extras in the form of private splash pools as well as indoor and outdoor showers. Rooms are decorated in light contemporary colors with glass-paneled walls on two sides.
The main lodge offers a spacious lounge and dining room as well as a small library. The central areas walk out onto an extended deck which takes in magnificent views of the surrounding valley. The lodge offers a fully equipped spa with a range of available treatments for relaxation.
From Port Elizabeth Airport (via flight from O R Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg), guests are transferred to the Eastern Cape's famed Shamwari Game Reserve for their safari. From fireside dinners and al fresco bathing to the cool privacy of your suite's own plunge pool and the lodge's relaxation retreat, this safari package offers a luxury escape into the wilderness.
A range of activities are available at Eagles Crag, planned with the assistance of your personally-assigned game ranger. From Big Five encounters on daily game drives or walks to memorable visits to the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuaries or the Shamwari Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, Shamwari delivers a plethora of unique and illuminating experiences for visitors.
If you are enjoying a safari at Shamwari Eagles Crag, you will be spoilt by opulent surroundings, exceptional food and service which has resulted in many awards and accolades. The safari experience in Shamwari is bettered only in Kruger. It is a wonderful choice for those seeking to combine a tour of Cape Town and the Garden Route with a safari at a malaria-free private game reserve. I think that the drive between the Garden Route town of Knysna and Shamwari is one of the most scenic in South Africa.Read More
