Founded in In 1990 by Adrian Gardiner who bought a small farm of 1200 ha of African bush. Adrian managed to buy up land from neighbouring farmers and his land soon extended to 7000 ha.
Shamwari Private Game Reserve is home to Africa’s Big 5 (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard), is malaria free and is situated in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This reserve has received numerous international awards, including the World’s Leading
Company and Game Reserve for many consecutive years. It is situated in verdant bush along the Bushmans River, halfway between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown, a pleasant drive from Cape Town and forms a natural extension to the famous Garden Route.
The park also has an animal orphanage, Shamwari Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Centre.
