Shamwari Explorers Camp offers a unique walking experience for guests seeking an adventurous safari in an authentic tented African bush-camp setting. The camp is located in a magical atmosphere, set among granite and basalt extrusions in the Shamwari Private Game Reserve. All meals are prepared and enjoyed under the stars. This camp allows guests to experience walking safaris and sleeping around the fire at night within the comfort of a bush tent. Expert guides will share their knowledge of birding, cultural history and natural history of the area, and there will be ample opportunities for encountering the Big 5.
Each trail is 2 nights, with departures on Thursdays and Sundays. Distances walked vary each day but can last up to 4 hours. Trails may start from the camp or guests will depart from camp by vehicle to explore another area of the reserve. Guests younger than 16 years are not allowed, while guests older than 60 years require a medical clearance certificate. However, if a medical certificate can be provided, exceptions to this will be allowed. The campsite is unfenced to provide a true explorer ambience. Wild animals are able to cross through the camp at any time and, although all safety precautions have been followed in setting up the camp, this remains a reality.
