Eagles Crag

  • Fodor's Choice


  • A carefully selected choice of top local wines and spirits is included
  • The rooms are enormous
  • The food and service are excellent


  • The reception areas are very large and can feel impersonal
  • Drinks are not included in the rates
  • The decor in the dining area doesn't live up to the rest of the lodge

Fodor's Review

Very different from the other Shamwari options, this sleek, modern lodge makes use of light wood, pale sandstone, and stainless-steel finishes. It's light and airy and spacious. All rooms have indoor and outdoor showers and private decks with plunge pools. Glass walls fold away to bring the feel of the bush into the room. You may also spot a movie star along with the wildlife; a number of celebrities have stayed here. As with all the lodges at Shamwari, breakfast and dinner are taken communally with your guide and other guests. Dinner alternates between a traditional South African braai cooked on open fires and an à la carte menu. You can also unwind at the spa.
