Long Lee Manor is a gracious Edwardian manor house set in the stunning landscape of the Big 5 Shamwari Game Reserve, a malaria-free Eden in the temperate Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Surrounded by terraces, ponds and pools in manicured gardens that lead out onto open grassland that is often dotted with grazing antelope, this grand establishment has palpable echoes of colonial days gone past. Twice-daily game drives here consistently deliver excellent sightings of rhino, elephant and lion, while the more elusive cheetah and leopard are also occasionally seen. Guided nature walks with an armed guide provide a fascinating insight into the smaller aspects of the ecosystem, while visits to the Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre, Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre and the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuary are highly recommended. 

Perfect as an introductory safari destination first-time visitors to Africa or for families with children, Long Lee Manor is ideally situated near Port Elizabeth, making it a great place to end a self-drive vacation up the world-famous Garden Route.

"I really enjoyed Long Lee; the old colonial charm worked so well with the modern facilities, and the game-drives were just fantastic."
