Shamwari was great, we really enjoyed it. Anna got to enjoy her first safari experience. Staff were lovely, the game reserve is extremely impressive and we really enjoyed it. Communal dining isn't necessarily ideal on honeymoon but I know from being on safari so many times that it's just part and parcel of the process.

Very good but would definitely be open to trying other reserves from feedback from other couples we met in hog hollow who were heading on safari too. We had a few maintenance issues with our tent but staff were lovely and spa was fab. Our ranger annoyed us at times as he brought us back significantlyearlier than other vehicles.
