Shumbalala Lodge is nestled in the heart of the Thornybush Reserve bordering the Kurger National Park. Situated on the banks of the seasonal Monwana river the camp is an unexpected oasis of luxury and comfort in the unforgiving heat of the African bushveld. Not accessible by private vehicles guests are collected by the rangers of Shumbalala Game Lodge and transferred on a short game drive to the camp situated unexpectedly in the lush bushveld surroundings.
The Shumbalala Game Lodge camp is a unique place where the African wild is spoiled only by the quiet appreciation of guests being waited upon in the true tradition of Africa in their luxurious surroundings. There is an immediate sense of tranquility, opulence and space complimented by the camp's custom designed buildings with it's African décor, high thatched roofs and attention to the finest detail.
Welcomed by management, staff and rangers at this intimate and exclusive lodge guests experience a professional yet relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
The lodge consists of a select number of Superior Suites and the exclusive Presidential Suite. In addition to the game viewing activities guests have time to relax and enjoy the surroundings on the game viewing decks overlooking the water hole frequented by game. There are two welcoming lounges inviting you to sit back and enjoy the pampering.
Shumbalala Lodge Amenities
In addition to the Superior Suites our Presidential Suite is a true haven of opulence and space offering unexpected luxury and exclusivity in the African bush. The Presidential Suite, a total of 225sqm includes two full en-suite bedrooms, a private dining room, private lounge, fireplace, wrap around private deck with outside dining facilities, a private boma and private plunge pool. The understated décor is African modern while the expansive wooden decking around the suite provides a perfect platform from which to experience the spectacularly wild african game and bush. If you prefer, meals can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own suite either in the private dining room next to the fireplace or outside next to a roaring open boma fire during the hot summer evenings. All complimented by friendly and professional service.
Your knowledgeable and experienced ranger conducts professional early morning and later afternoon / evening game drives in an informative and relaxed fashion. Fully equipped custom built game viewing vehicles offer all the comfort and luxury for our guests. Your qualified ranger will be happy to share all their knowledge of the bush - from the prized big five (leopard, lion, buffalo, elephant, rhino) to the smaller game, plants, trees, insects and more.
Two game drives are conducted at the best suited times of the day to maximize the number of sightings. An early morning game drive start directly after morning coffee at approximately 5h30 in the morning (and a half an hour later in the winter). The excitement and rush of the adventure is interrupted by a stop over in the open bush for tea or coffee with a light snack - often with a view over nearby game. The adventure continues and you return back to camp at around 9:30 am to freshen up before brunch.
Following afternoon high tea the afternoon game drives start at approximately 16h00 (and half and hour earlier in the winter) and continues into the night. The game drives are again interrupted by a stop-over in the bush for sundowners watching the splendour of the African sun setting over the mountains. The game viewing at night offers the opportunity to view the nocturnal animals including the possibility of lions out on the prowl.
