Blown Away!!!!! Speechless!!!!! Fantastic!!!!!! Incredible!!!!! Magical!!!!! Luxury and adventure combined for the experience of a lifetime for our family of four visiting to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday. Our Ranger Jesse was an absolute gem, she is amazing with kids, intelligent (her extensive knowledge of animals WOW), patient, kind and most important FUN! FUN! FUN! My kids cried when they left Shamwari. I have never seen them cry after a holiday or leaving a hotel ever so this was definitely a first. Customized to our every desire and a great surprise on each drive. They went above and beyond in making my husband’s 40th the most memorable birthday ever. We were blown away by the hospitality at Shamwari. The staff are incredible every single one of them. The most delicious fine dining experience, kids variety of food met every expectation. The facilities are among the finest we have experienced. The well trained staff made our stay world class. No details were left undone. As the staff gathered to wish us a farewell, we couldn’t help but feel we were leaving our friends. An extremely emotional departure. Thank you Shamwari you will always stay close to our hearts Suresh, Natalie, Tamia and Gia... thank you for a truly brilliant experience. See you soon.

Luxury and adventure combined for the experience of a lifetime for our family of four visiting from California. Our Ranger Jan is a pro at both tracking animals and getting a smile from a teenage daughter. Customized to our every desire and a great surprise on each drive. We spent 3 days at Shamwari and had new discoveries on each game drive. The facilities are among the finest we have experienced. The well trained staff made our stay world class. No details were left undone. As the staff gathered to wish us a farewell, we couldn’t help but feel we were leaving our friends. No matter the distance, we committed then to return soon. Thank you Jan, Liza Marie, Kim, Mandla and Theo for a truly brilliant experience. See you soon.

My family and I ( 2 adults , 3 kids aged 13,12 and 8) have just returned from one of the most wonderful experiences of our life. We stayed at Long Lee Manor in the most amazing family suite. It was pure perfection. Long Lee Manor staff are incredible. Nothing was too much trouble for them! I cannot commend them enough. Service and hospitality extraordinaire! And now onto the game drives..... Our Game Ranger was Mino, and after having experienced game ranging in this manner, we are forever spoilt for any other game drive. Mino made it his goal to pamper us and make us all feel like kings and queens ... and that’s besides all the actual game spotting and experiences. He went above and beyond for us. We had the most incredible sightings and experiences. Unforgettable! On our last day we bumped into Shamwari’s CEO, Mr Joe Cloete. And it’s no wonder Shamwari is run so well ! Such a humble man with a fantastic attitude. Our Shamwari Game Reserve experience was everything we wanted and MUCH more. We highly , highly recommended it! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
