Earth, wind, water and fire combine with practicality, amazement and comfort at Sarili Lodge, Shamwari Game Reserve, a modern/colonial retreat in the Eastern Cape of beautiful South Africa.

The terrace is the perfect place to watch the African sunset.
Here in the cradle of life itself, nature runs free. You, too, can run free at Sarili Lodge, Shamwari Game Reserve. The big five are here en-masse (rhinoceros, African elephant, cape buffalo, leopard and lion) as are a plethora of other native animals waiting fro their big photo op.

Sarili Lodge is one of seven private lodges on the sprawling reserve, so you’ll have your space, without being completely remote. The lodge boasts a modern/rustic style with natural rock playing off sleek furnishings. Gaze out over the grasslands from one of five rooms, listening to the trumpeting of elephants while kicking back in absolute luxury.

Chill out in the private pool, or perhaps the bar — depending on how you like to unwind. But don’t forget why you’re here: exploration. Venture out on a game drive, lasting between three and four hours, with a late-day stop and a snack break in the morning. Bring the finest camera you can afford, because the shots you’ll take home are surely once in a lifetime. That is, unless you fall under South Africa’s spell, and simply must return again and again.
