Sindile Lodge


This peaceful adults-only retreat is tucked away deep within Shamwari Private Game Reserve.

Shamwari’s newest luxury tented camp has been designed to echo a solitary leopard’s sanctuary, blending into the bushveld while offering stunning views over the Bushman’s River and rolling plains. Sindile is secluded, intimate and incredibly tranquil as it welcomes adults only.

The dining area and bar make the most of the views over the reserve, and the fire pit is the perfect place to gather around in the evenings. Game drives in the popular Shamwari Private Game Reserve are included in your stay, giving you the opportunity to spot wonderful wildlife or visit the nearby Born Free Big Cat Sanctuaries and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre.

Each of the nine luxury tents is elevated for beautiful views. These individual tents have been designed to blend with the natural surroundings – you’ll be deep in the wild bushveld, but still have the benefit of mod cons including Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, a Nespresso machine and a minibar. There’s also the bonus of a heated plunge pool on your private deck for the ultimate way to relax with an icy drink at the end of the day’s adventures.
