Lobengula Lodge offers a truly traditional African experience. Tucked deep in the valley bushveld, this thatched, ethnically decorated lodge offers guests a tranquil, luxurious and exclusive getaway. All six Junior suites are en suite, with air conditioning. There are three poolside suites, two with private plunge pool and one with a private plunge pool and indoor fireplace.
Lobengula serves lavish meals for discerning diners, offers a selection of fine South African wines and well-trained staff ensure a high quality of service and satisfaction. The magnificent wooden deck overlooking the dense African bush is beautifully appointed for meals or mystical African storytelling in front of the fireplace. A small gym, steam room and a relaxation retreat are also available. Early morning and evening wildlife-viewing drives in open 4x4s, as well as guided nature walks and birdwatching, are all part of this magnificent experience. Guests at 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.
