Shamwari Villa Lobengula 

Lobengula Lodge is a truly classical African experience. Tucked away deep in the valley bushveld, this ethnically decorated thatched lodge offers guests a tranquil, luxurious and exclusive getaway.

Two of the 5 luxury suites have private plunge pools whilst the remaining 3 suites are situated adjacent to the large swimming pool.  The Chief suite boasts a large lounge with fireplace and private pool.

Lobengula Lodge serves lavish meals either on the main deck, in the diningroom beside the fireplace or in the outside boma under the stars. A selection of fine and rare South African wines are available from the cellar. A selection of Cuban cigars are on offer from the humidor.

After a game drive guests can relax, swim or enjoy a drink at the pool bar.

The magnificent wooden deck overlooking the dense African bush is beautifully appointed for meals or mystical African storytelling in front of the fireplace.

Guests are also invited to pamper themselves in the spa or workout in the gym.
