Set in the heart of the 11 500 hectare Thornybush Reserve, adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park, Shumbalala offers the tradition of Africa in luxurious surroundings. An African safari can often be a life changing experience and at Shumbalala these dreams can come true. In the heart of Big Five Country, the elusive leopard is often seen as well as a further abundance of fascinating bird and mammal species. An experienced ranger will accompany you on the morning and evening game drive safaris and for those seeking a little more adventure, smaller flora and fauna can be discovered on a guided bush walk. Exclusivity and sublime personalised service are hallmarks of this intimate camp. Nestled under magnificent trees on the bank of a river bed overlooking an active water hole lie four suites and two presidential suites with plunge pool. With a maximum of eight guests, you'll be spoiled for privacy and exclusivity at this exceptional game lodge in the heart of Thornybush Reserve.

In addition to the game viewing decks and swimming pools, there are two lounges, a curio shop and a library in which to relax between game drives. Come home to the welcome of our luxurious lodge after an uplifting experience in the bush, your senses inspired by all that is nature. Exciting dawn and dusk safaris will give you the opportunity to view the Big Five, while lazy afternoons can be spent by the poolside listening to the sounds of the bush.
