Pros: Relaxed and comfortable - lovely food
Cons: The rehab centre was interesting and educative but could have been done far quicker and more efficiently

A fantastic experience from start to finish - wonderful location, lovely staff, large comfortable rooms and great food and amazing experience for us and the kids . Expensive but worth every penny !

Two nights of bliss!Posted Mar 4, 2017
Pros: The food was excellent,the facilities were first class, the grounds were beautiful. The Game Drives were a fabulous experience.
Cons: I struggle to find anything, but one small point comes to mind. I think that wine should be included in the price.
Location: It is hard to drive over the unmade road to get there, you have to go slowly or you will damage your car, we drove about 8 kilometres.
Many people would think that the Shamwari experience is all about the fabulous food, rooms, facilities, & staff. Well all of these things are out of this world, but the real experience is the animals. We were so lucky to have a ranger like Wes, his knowledge, commitment to the job & guests were second to none. The extent that he went too to make sure that we saw every available animal was fantastic. The Game drives were the highlight of our South African holiday.

Out of this worldPosted Jul 27, 2016
Cons: Wifi in the room would be nice
It was such a pleasure to be there. The luxurious tent was very nicely setup -- a fireplace, mini bar, expresso machine, the plunge pool and the private deck. It was just out of this world. The food was awesome! Great compliments to all the chefs. It is totally a 6-star experience. I had the best of fun doing the game drives. The ranger is very knowledgable and we saw so much that it was totally unexpected. The visit to Born Free project was wonderful. It broadened my understanding of what needs to be done about animal abuse or cruelty.

Inspired South African experience. Our trip to Shamwari game reserve created very special memories as we experienced a warm, friendly and truly luxurious three days. The opportunities to view wildlife, flora and fauna was complemented by our professional and highly informed guide. The service from everyone was warm, friendly and generous. This elevated the experience, even though the weather was less than kind.

What an experience again - superbPosted Mar 28, 2015 on Hotels
We came back to Long Lee Manor for 2 nights and it was totally up to our expectation. The staff is very attentive and helpful. The food is plentiful, the beds very comfortable and the ambience very relaxing. However, the main attraction is the wildlife and the 2 game drives a day, one leaving at 6am and the second at 4pm. The rangers are very knowledgeable and interested in showing us way more than just the big animals. The scenery is stunning and it was a treat to return.

Two days at Eagles CragPosted Dec 7, 2014 on Hotels
Our stay was just perfect, all we had dreamed for. It was our 25th wedding anniversary trip and it hit the spot. Thank you for all the staff who made our stay so special, with special thanks to Jan, our ranger for making our game drives fun and packed with beautiful sights.
