The Shambala Reserve is another concession found in the central region of the Waterberg incorporating 12,000 hectares of private game territory. In terms of wildlife you’ll see the Big Five as well as many antelope species, black and white rhino, giraffe, wildebeest and zebra, however this particular reserve is renowned for its elephant safaris and the Zulu Camp’s spectacularly unique setting.

A river, quite literally, runs through the Zulu Camp of eight intricately thatched and cosy chalets here at Shambala. Also as a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, you won’t be disappointed with the level of luxury or services either: there is a spa, pool and driving range, all of which feel all the more pronounced in your wild surroundings.

A shrewd blend of chic African and provincial French décor has gone into the design and furnishings of the camp and its chalets, capturing the charm and wild sensation of your surroundings delivered with an elegant, pastoral polish. You’ll also be won over by the tranquility of the Zulu Camp and the staff at Shambala, who strive to deliver a very personal touch to your stay.
