"Superb !"

3 nights Arrived 21 Aug 2019
"We really can't praise Shamwari enough. It was the highlight of our trip.

We were there with a 4 year old who loved it, the play area at Riverdene is great, the safaris are too. I have read the reservations of Shamwari as a safari destination (too many fences etc) but really don't agree.

If you have children especially this place is a must. Maybe the food lacked a little variety but it still gets a 4." See all these reviews: 10n in South Africa; 6n in Seychelles
