Eagles Crag Lodge is an avante-guard masterpiece of thatch, stone and glass. It offers an authentic African experience, secretly hidden in a gorge, filled with forest vegetation and looking out onto a cliff face and dry riverbed. It has been designed to provide the discerning travelling with the ultimate in luxury, privacy and tranquillity. Each of the 9 individually built suites accommodate just two guests and each has its own private deck with heated plunge pool and uninterrupted views of the bush. Raised wooden walkways link the private suites to the public areas, which include upstairs lounge, fireplace and bar opening onto deck with aerial viewing pods overlooking the cliffs. Also a downstairs lounge with fireplace, big screen tv and billiard table and there is a fitness centre. The dining room on the upper level has a fireplace and floor-to-ceiling foldaway glass doors, which lead out onto the balcony. Early morning and evening game viewing drives in open land rovers as well as guided nature walks and bird watching are all part of this magnificent experience. In between safari activities, you may also like to visit the luxury spa, which offers a range of personalised treatments as well as a hydro bath, sauna and steam room. Guests of Shamwari are also able to see some of the rescued animals at the Born Free Foundation Animal Rescue and Education Centre, which over the years has rescued several big cats from situations where they were in serious danger. Visit the museum and educational facility, which aims to create an awareness of the way wildlife is exploited in captivity around the world.
