Shumbalala Accommodation

Shumbalala Lodge is a unique place, each day brings an intricate web of nature, which along with the luxury and attention to detail provided by the staff, will evoke in the visitor an indelible mood of the bush, and a sense of peace.

This is a small and very intimate Lodge, with only four luxury suites, and one Presidential Suite.

All the suites have overhead fans, air-conditioning, open fireplaces, and designer "picture window" bathrooms that include an additional outside shower, and a private viewing deck.

The Presidential Suite is a magnificent unit with two adjoining suites, private lounge and dining facilities, huge viewing deck, which extends onto a plunge pool.

In addition to the game viewing decks and swimming pools, there are two lounges, a curio shop and a library at Shumbalala, in which to relax between game drives.

Guests may select wines from the unique underground cellar, whilst enjoying a sumptuous dinner prepared by expert chef either fire-side from the lodge deck, in the wine cellar or candle-lit room dining in winter. Dinners can also be enjoyed in more formal surroundings in the main dining room accompanied by a crackling fire in winter.

Spend lazy afternoons at the pool, or reading in the library, or indulge in some bird watching from the deck.

To ensure absolute exclusivity and privacy, the lodge normally accommodates only eight guests at a time.
