  • Bayethe Lodge, Shamwari Game Reserve

    Bayethe Lodge, Shamwari Game Reserve

There are only 12 tents at Bayethe Lodge, each nestled away in the vegetation to ensure privacy and seclusion, the ideal place to spend your down time before game drives, taking a dip in your private plunge pool or relaxing on your deck. All of the rooms have fitted international adaptors, international dial telephones, electric blankets and hairdryers and the living area has Wi-Fi, a business desk with a computer and internet access. The main lodge also has a large swimming pool and indoor and outdoor dining area. The restaurant offers a great array of cuisine including some themed nights.

Two game drives are included daily and visits to the following can also be arranged on request:

    Animal Rehabilitation Centre/Animal Hospital

    The Shamwari rehabilitation centre is amongst the best in Southern Africa and is fully registered to provide veterinary care to young, abandoned, orphaned or injured animals. On arrival you will be met by a member of this caring team who will show you the facilities and explain what it is that they do. During the recovery phase, “patients” are kept in custom built bomas. Provided there are patients in care, an opportunity to meet them should arise during your visit. The animal rehabilitation centre operates on donations only, therefore no entrance fee is requested, but a monetary donation will be much appreciated.

    Dr Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre

    The Dr Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre, was created in conjunction with the Wilderness Foundation to highlight the devastating effect of rhino poaching which South Africa and the rest of the continent is facing.

Over the years the Born Free Foundation has been able to rescue several big cats from situations where they focused on promoting the conservation of species and the protection of habitat whilst maintaining a humane and compassionate approach to the welfare of animals. The Born Free Foundation is a registered charity and therefore solely relies on donations. No entry fees are charged, but a monetary donation is requested.
