Shamwari Explorer Camp offers a unique walking safari in the diverse Shamwari Reserve for a traditional and authentic African safari experience. The camp is located on a plateau set amongst the only basalt and granite extrusions on Shamwari. A truly magical setting awaits!!
The Shamwari Explorer Camp tour is a flexible experience as we believe in simplifying the usual rigid itinerary by going back to basics. Shamwari Explorer Camp reflects the original safari. Enjoy being on foot and sleeping around the fire in a comfortable bush tent.
You will enjoy a guided safari as your guide helps with birding, cultural history and other natural history of the area, along with ample opportunity of some Big 5 encounters.
