Shamwari is about conserving a vanishing way of life and is the realization of one man’s dream, and the success of many people’s passion. Shamwari is steeped in pioneer history, dating back to when thousands of game roamed wild and free in the Eastern Cape.
Shamwari Game Reserve boasts five eco-systems in its 25,000 hectare reserve and this enables them to support the vast numbers of game and many forms of plant and bird life. The Reserve is a conservation victory by successfully reintroducing the game that once roamed free on this land many years ago.
