The spirit of Shamwari Sarili Lodge
Perfect for families or small groups, the intimate Shamwari Sarili Lodge, perched on the banks of the Bushman’s River, boasts two luxury Courtyard Rooms facing the garden and swimming pool, and three luxury River View Rooms overlooking the Bushman’s River.

Guests can explore the surroundings on game drives, as well as guided game and nature walks.
What we love about Shamwari Sarili Lodge
- Ask one of the hosts to tell you the intriguing story of the 19th century Xhosa chief that the lodge is named after.
- Relax on the broad viewing deck after dinner and listen to a family of hippo grunting in the river below.
- On a cool winter’s morning, be sure to warm up with a cup of the lodge’s famous hot chocolate.
