The Lobengula dream at the magnificent Shamwari Game Game Reserve

What an amazing place! We spent 3 nights at Lobengula Lodge, had an incredible experience and made some wonderful friends. All of the staff were so friendly and went out of their way to make our stay so special. The food and accommodation was wonderful. Our ranger was SJ who was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and made sure we saw as much as possible and we learnt a lot from him. We didn’t want to leave - wish we could give it more stars! Thank you to Nina and the team and SJ for making this a truly amazing experience. To anyone considering booking - just do it :)

Perfect start to our SA holiday

London, United Kingdom

We spent 2 days at the Lobengula lodge at the start of our SA holiday. It was the attention to detail that really impressed. The morning game drives were a bit chilly and the hot water bottles and blankets were appreciated. When we returned to the lodge we were given a face cloth to refresh and a welcome drink. Patrick the ranger gave us 4 exciting game drives. His knowledge and humour added to the adventure. Food was excellently prepared and served.
