So what to do if you have been to Johannesburg before and want something different.    You head 3 hours North to Shambala Private Game Reserve, situated on 10,000 hectares in the Limpopo Province.  Shambala meaning Paradise on Earth in Zulu, where this African bushveld is home to a variety of flora and fauna and especially The Big Five.

This totally inclusive camp is built in the traditional Zulu style with streams from the nearby river running through the camp.    Your adventure starts as you stand on the deck of the main lodge overlooking the river that is home to many animal species including the local hippos as they wallow in the river.  Stay in luxury Afro-French Provincial style chalets with your own personal butler who caters to your every need, from an early morning wake up call for a sunrise safari, maybe a sundowner cruise, or an afternoon at the Shambala Spa.

Shambala Camp is inclusive of game drives, bush walks, bush picnics with an abundance of fresh locally grown ingredients to create outstanding dishes accompanied by equally outstanding locally produced wines.

The setting of this remarkable camp, its people, their commitment to wildlife conservation, and what it has to offer will have you wishing you had more time in this idyllic African paradise.    You will return home with a better understanding of the African bush and its wildlife.
