Eagles Crag Lodge

Discover Eagles Crag Lodge

The malaria-free Shamwari Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape is home to the Big 5 - elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion, and leopard - as well as a host of other wildlife, which you will see on thrilling game drives. Luxury safari accommodation is offered in 7 individual 5-star lodges and 1 explorer camp including the sophisticated and ultra-luxurious Eagles Crag offering a high level of exclusivity and spectacular views.

This luxurious property is surrounded by lush vegetation and rocky cliffs. To ensure an unforgettable experience, the lodge’s upper deck with aerial viewing pods provides panoramic views of the surrounding rock faces where eagles sour. The 9 exquisite suites blend sophisticated interiors with the natural surroundings and all 9 feature a private heated plunge pool. The main lodge area features a downstairs lodge with a billiard table, fireplace and big screen TV and an upstairs lounge with a bar and fireplace opening onto the deck and aerial pods. For relaxing between safari activities there’s a Relaxation Retreat with a steam room and sauna and a Fitness Centre. The dining experiences are truly memorable with top-class meals served in a variety of locations around the lodge and on the reserve.
