Situated in a verdant valley, along the Bushman’s River in the Eastern Cape, Eagles Crag is one of the most secluded and private lodges in the Shamwari Game Reserve, making it the perfect option for honeymooners or those looking for complete privacy and tranquillity. Embark on a morning and evening game drives in the Shamwari Game Reserve with your personal game ranger.

Stop during your drives to enjoy a nice warm cup of coffee in the mornings or a sundowner in the evening. Experience the surrounding area from a different perspective on a guided walk, with a specially trained guide. Relax after a day in the bush with a rejuvenating treatment or soak in the steam bath at Eagles Crag Lodge Retreat. Visit the Born Free Big Cat Sanctuary, an animal rescue centre in the reserve.

Traveller Reviews

  • Well, really, I don't believe you can complain about anything. The accommodation was perfect, very comfortable beds, spotlessly clean, lovely baths and showers for after those cold game drives. The food was always wonderful, plenty of variety and always fresh. But the most important thing about Shamwari is the staff, they really do go above and beyond to make it a memorable stay. All of them, from the game ranger (who was really wonderful - Tim) to the cleaning staff and everything in between. And the game was plentiful, always so wonderful to be in the bush again. A real treat, we are always so grateful that we can experience this.
