“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside three spectacular lodges set on the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa.
There are a total of 12 luxury tents, all with ample amenities, but three premium ones come with more (satellite TV, fireplace, private plunge pool and hammock). The highlight here would have to be the bush spa overlooking a watering hole, where you can watch the rhinos and simultaneously get a relaxing rub down.
Nine individual thatched-roof suites are set within a lush green gorge. South African wines are readily available and cigars too in their lounge. Bird lovers rejoice, the rooms come with scopes for avian-spotting and plenty of pretty winged-things park themselves in the nearby trees.
Just five special suites here, both colorful and mod-meets-colonial. Their pool is especially pristine and kid-friendly to boot. This place sits on the plains and has spectacular, expansive decks for surveying the wide open splendor (the proof is in the first photo).
