Heaven on Earth
If you’re reading this to see if you should book or not - don’t think for another second, book! My husband surprised me with 3 nights for our honeymoon and it took my breath away! From all the details, being welcomed into our room with some MCC, personal card and treats - to the decor in the dining area - to the hot water bottle for the cold winter morning game drives, it couldn’t have been more idyllic! Jason our ranger was like our very own encyclopedia, he knew everything and even threw in the odd dad joke here and there ;) The dining staff are incredibly friendly and professional, really adding to the whole experience of total relaxation. Joe, the CEO is by far the kindest person I have ever met!! Taking the time to sit with us at tea and get to know us. I thank everyone at Shamwari and can’t wait to come back!! This place is what I imagine heaven to be!
Wonderful 2 days in the Eastern Cape
We stayed a Sindile Lodge for 2 nights- really well appointed rooms with own private heated splash pool and deck and an outdoor shower all overlooking a plain full of game. Food really excellent and logic's been applied so so meals are substantial but well spaced. The staff are super friendly and happy to accommodate any request. Our ranger Mino really looked after us and tailored the game drives to the needs of the guests. Modern land cruiser game vehicle for close up game viewing. Great to meet the hands-on CEO Joe Cloete who is at the coal face ever day overseeing the lodge workings.
We stayed in the Sindile Lodge for our honeymoon, and were hugely impressed. All of the staff at the lodge were friendly and wonderful. The service was great. Food was amazing, definitely no risk of going hungry! Our ranger, Mino, really added to the experience, he was accommodating and full of knowledge! 3 days just wasn’t enough! We will definitely be coming back.
Most Amazing and Amazing Game Reserve
While we visited Manor and Bush lodge as well, however we choose to stay at Sindali and it was an amazing experience it offers modern look, heated pool, open shower, amazing staff,best safari (Binoli our host and Raymond, Mino our rangers worked their charm on us with experience that was so personalised and warm that we just didn't want to leave..... A BIG THANKS FOR MAKING OUR TRIP SO MEMORABLE)
Once in a Lifetime Trip
We had such an amazing time at Shamwari. We were welcomed like family by Bonolo from the moment we arrived at Long Lee Manor. The staff was awesome and very welcoming, from our awesome guide Josh who attempted to pass on all of his knowledge about the flora and fauna. We also were able to spend time at the amazing Sindile with KG and Anele, whom we will never forget. They were absolutely wonderful in every way. The entire staff went above and beyond to assist us when we were "stranded" for an additional 4 nights due to Omicron. Couldn't have asked for a better place to be "stuck". After the first couple of days we asked ourselves what more could we see, we had seen all of the animals that we expected. However, every game drive was different, either siting new animals or just seeing the animals in a different situation.
