Shamwari Riverdene Lodge

An elegantly restored and child-friendly frontier home

The spirit of Shamwari Riverdene Lodge

Overlooking the magnificent bushveld of the Eastern Cape, the family-friendly Shamwari Riverdene Lodge is a beautifully restored original frontier home. Nine spacious inter-leading rooms brim with welcoming ease and warmth and offer an en-suite
bathroom with bath and shower, private patio and a Nespresso coffee machine.

Delicious meals are served in the boma, overlooking the Bushman’s River, or in beautifully laid out indoor dining areas.

With its air of understated sophistication, the lodge is ideal for families and offers a range of exciting children’s games and activities in the Kids Club and Outdoor Adventure Centre. Apart from comfortable sun loungers and magnificent views, the sparkling swimming pool also has an extensive shallow area especially for younger guests. A Kids Club and Outdoor Adventure Centre keeps children entertained while adults browse through the gift boutique or relax in the bar and lounge. Guests can explore the spectacular Big Five reserve on game drives and guided walks.

What we love about Shamwari Riverdene Lodge

  • The Kids on Safari Programme, which not only introduces children to the wonders of wildlife but also visits the Wildlife Rehabilitation and Born Free Centres.
  • Warming up with a drink in front of the roaring fireplace in the lounge after evening game drive.
  • Strolling through the beautiful grounds, securely protected by an electric fence.
