Secluded in a magnificent valley in Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, Eagles Crag Lodge is a masterful joining together of thatch, stone and glass surrounded by craggy cliffs. It’s the ideal location for a discerning traveller looking for a private, tranquil getaway amidst the beauty of the African bush.
Luxurious and tranquil, Eagles Crag Lodge is made up of nine junior suites, each with its own en-suite bathroom, with indoor and outdoor shower, private viewing deck and heated plunge pool. Decorated in light, contemporary décor, floor to ceiling glass doors open up to the most magnificent vistas that surround the lodge.
Situated on 25 000 hectares (61 000 acres) of malaria free private game reserve, Shamwari Private Game Reserve is world-renowned for its magnificent game viewing and abundant wildlife. It lies at the convergence of five ecosystems and it’s this diversity that supports the Big Five (elephant, lion, leopard, rhino and buffalo) as well as a rich array of antelope and birdlife.
Guests are invited to take morning and evening game drives with an experienced and passionate ranger who will provide a wealth of information about the latest research and conservation projects happening at Shamwari. Game drives are taken in specially designed 4×4 Land Rovers, which ensure you get as close as possible to the experience.
When you are not out viewing game, relax at the luxury spa where you can awaken your sense and allow your body to be rejuvenated with any of the personalised treatments on offer.Between drives guests can visit the wildlife rehabilitation centre and the Born Free centre for big cats rescued from captivity.
The main lodge has a stylish dining room with intimate dining pods. The upstairs bar and lounge area opening up onto a beautiful deck overlooking the cliffs is the perfect place for guests to relax and unwind after a day’s game viewing. The upstairs main dining area offers an array of excellent African and international style cuisine, as well as spellbinding views out over the cliff face that is host to the eagles after which the lodge is named.
