About the Birding and Wildlife
The malaria-free landscape offers magnificent encounters with free-roaming wildlife including the coveted Big 5 and is one of the largest private conservation initiatives in Southern Africa and is approximately 25 000 hectares, Shamwari has several bodies of water including the Bushman’s river located throughout the reserve, which means it is the ideal opportunity to catch sight of the teaming birdlife. Our rangers are knowledgeable on the various bird species residing on the reserve and will happily share their insights with guests. At the moment there are more than 275 different bird species at Shamwari for guests to spot. You may see a herd of wild buffalo, but the tiny ox peckers on their backs are the real conservation success.
