Shambala, Awarded World’s Leading Private
Game Reserve Eight Years in a Row
In a country that offers you hundreds
of luxury game lodges across all of
the country's provinces, Shambala
combines numerous unique and
remarkable experiences in a
remarkably intimate and luxurious
Shambala has also been creative in
rewarding guests with a wide range of
activities to enrich the overall experience.
This includes Sundowner Cruises on
Shambala’s 30-hectare Douw Steyn Dam,
Fishing, Quad Biking, a Shooting Range,
and private Bush Walks & Picnics.
One of the most prized
advantages Shambala offers
you is the surprising and
unusual lack of other vehicles
to interfere with game drive
Very rarely are there more than one
or two vehicles on game drives in the
entire reserve, allowing you and your
family or friends lengthy and peaceful
encounters with the rich diversity of
wildlife resident to Shambala.
There are two luxurious and
individually spectacular lodges
in family friendly Shambala:
Zulu Camp and the Nelson
Zulu Camp is built in traditional Zulu style with
streams from the nearby river running through
the camp, creating a unique large private
waterhole right next to the lodge that often
features hippos for the guests to safely enjoy
viewing from their dining tables, swimming pool
or bar area.
The Nelson Mandela Villa offers 5 luxury
bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a
spectacular Presidential Suite. The villa
features a large dining room, two lounges, a
huge outdoor deck, and an indoor/outdoor
heated swimming pool situated on a viewing
deck that overlooks a private waterhole.
Inspired by the legacy and by his deep
friendship with the former President,
Shambala owner Douw Steyn commissioned
the building of the Nelson Mandela Centre
for Reconciliation in Shambala. This special
retreat gave Mandela the opportunity to work
uninterrupted in peace and solitude.
"We have been incredibly
honored to again be recognized
by the World Travel Awards as
the world's leading private game
reserve" says Gen
