Shamwari Game Reserve, R342, Kirkwood, Eastern Cape, South Africa
About Shamwari Luxury Game Reserve
Shamwari was the first game reserve to be established in the area offering 'Big Five' game viewing in a malaria free environment close to Port Elizabeth. This property and location are ideal as part of a tailor-made itinerary along The Garden Route.
The reserve is home to the world famous Born Free Foundation – a sanctuary for big cats who have been rescued from captivity.
