Shamwari Explorer Camp


Located within the malaria-free Shamwari Private Game Reserve, just 9 km from Paterson lies the Shamwari Explorer Camp. Located on a plateau among basalt and granite rock formations, the walking safari camp offers scenic views over the vast landscape.
Shamwari offers a unique walking experience that is ideal for guests looking for an adventurous and authentic experience. Shamwari offers the ambience of a tented bush camp with old Safari lore.
The camp sites at all our Explorer Camps are unfenced to provide the true explorer ambience and tents are placed in fairly close proximity without encroaching on other tents privacy. Wild animals are able to move through the camps at any time and although all safety precautions have been followed in setting up the camp, the wild life remains a reality.
