Shamwari Private Game Reserve is the southernmost big game, private reserve in Africa and is malaria free. This ultimate African adventure stretches along the Bushman’s River, halfway between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, and forms a natural extension to the famous Garden Route and Cape Town. The 18,000-hectare wildlife reserve is steeped in settler history and dates back to the time when wildlife roamed freely in the Eastern Cape. Shamwari is about conserving a vanishing way of life and has been awarded a number of international awards for its efforts in conservation coupled with tourism. The park has been well stocked with wildlife from all over the region including black rhinos, elephants, buffaloes, leopards, lions and many species of antelope.
