Set under shady African trees lining the Monwana River, Shumbalala Safari Lodge is found in the heart of the 11,000 ha Thornybush Game Reserve and offers guests an untamed African safari in absolute luxury and privacy.
This exclusive game lodge comprises four Superior Suites and a two bedroomed Presidential Suite with private viewing decks and accommodates a small number of guests at a time, for ultimate tranquillity. Daily morning and evening Big 5 safari game drives and walking safaris are undertaken by qualified rangers and experienced trackers, offering guests close range game viewing opportunities.
All the suites have overhead fans, air-conditioning, open fireplaces, and designer "picture window" bathroom suites that include an additional outside shower for the more adventurous and a private viewing deck.
To ensure absolute exclusivity and privacy, the lodge normally accommodates only eight guests at a time.
The two bed-roomed Presidential Suite, in addition to all of the facilities of the superior suites, boasts a separate dining room, lounge, a private pool deck and pool, and a fireside facility - the ultimate in opulence and exclusivity!
In addition to the game viewing decks and swimming pools at the main lodge, there are two lounges, a curio shop and a library in which to relax between game drives.
Sumptuous cuisine prepared by the well trained chef is enjoyed either on the lodge decks positioned to ensure scenic vistas, or by candlelight in more formal surroundings in the main dining room accompanied by a crackling fire in winter. Open air fire-side dinners are an occasion, and an opportunity to share your experience.
Good food is complimented by wines of excellence - select your own in this exclusive underground cellar in full view of the water hole!
Spend lazy afternoons at the pool, reading in the private library, selecting a prized African gift in our curio shop, bird watching or just relaxing in this lovely South Africa safari lodge. Shumbalala Game Lodge - the 5 star South Africa safari lodge where natural beauty and idyllic comfort meet.
The best way to travel is to follow the N4 from the airport past Witbank & Middelburg until you reach the Belfast turnoff.
Turn left on the R40 through Belfast and take the road through Dullstroom (good place to stop for something to eat). Then through Lydenburg, Orighstad and through the Strijdom tunnel.
Onto Hoedspruit where you turn right on the R40 and left (after about 5km) at the Eastgate Airport sign. Pass the airport on your left and just after the road becomes gravel, turn right and follow the signs to the Thornybush Reserve.
After about 10km turn left into the Thornybush gate and continue into the reserve to the car park at the Main lodge where our ranger will be ready to collect you.
Daily charter flights are available, flying directly to the airstrip in the Thornybush Game Reserve.
