Situated in the centre of one of the best game viewing regions, Rippon’s Safari Lodge is perfectly located right next to the spectacular Shamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape. With beautifully refurbished buildings dotted around luxurious gardens, this historic lodge sits at the doorstep of the South African bush. Whether you wish to cosy up with a loved one or take a family vacation, any one of the 12 beautifully decorated guesthouses will cater to your holidaying needs. Ideal for family trips, the Standard Family Rooms cater for two adults and two children, while the Duplex House Suites cater for two adults and three children. If travelling with a loved one or friend, the Long Barn contains a number of comfortable adult-only twin or double-bedrooms. Each of these have glorious views across the garden, solar panels for the eco-aware, and a private terrace with a fabulous swimming pool just a moment’s walk away.
Early morning game drives in the still dark bush will captivate and delight, as knowledgeable and friendly rangers take you around the beautiful South African bush. Keep an eye out for the Big Five as well as numerous other species, such as Buffalo, Cheetah, Eland, Giraffe, Orynx, any number of birds, as well as the Addo Flightless Dung Beetle, Tiger Beetle and TokTokkie, to name a few. After working up an appetite, head back to Rippon’s Safari Lodge and enjoy a sumptuous breakfast. Relax in the pool, read a book on your shaded veranda or have a nap in your luxurious room before enjoying either a lunch buffet or picnic, with food ranging from wholesome soups, healthy salads, cold meats, cheese and more. An evening game drive will give you the chance to possibly see the more elusive animals at their most active time of day, while enjoying a Sun downer overlooking the magnificent surroundings. Back at Rippon’s Safari Lodge, depending on the weather, dinner will be served either in the cosy dining room with the other guests or outside on the terrace.
Lovely accommodation with very friendly staff. The safaris were excellently organised with great guides. A lovely experience.
