Shumba’s Rest Game Lodge offers guests a place to break away and come and experience the calmness of the Bushveld. This private game lodge is nestled in the heart of the malaria and cholera free Waterberg Mountains of South Africa.
The Tented Camp and Chalets are surrounded by Bushveld Savannah, punctuated with clusters of trees and tall Savannah shrubs. Guests are free to be mesmerized by the surreal ambiance orchestrated by over 200 African bush and wetland bird species.
Before taking a stroll through the Limpopo habitat, a wealth of on-site activities awaits you. Come and experience our renowned Jacuzzi-Game-Drives or relax with a sundowner at the bar, watching the sunset on the bushveld.
If you are looking for a place to find rest and replenish your soul, Shumba’s Rest Game Lodge is the perfect place for you.
Shumba’s borders the world-renowned Nylsvlei Nature Reserve, which as a World Heritage site is a must see. Nylsvlei Nature Reserve welcomes all Shumba’s guests. The Waterberg-Nylsvlei Birding Route covers the vast Waterberg mountains and the surrounding areas. It contains the largest inland flood plain in South Africa, covering nearly 16 000 hectares, the largest Cape Vulture breeding colony in the country, four provincial reserves and over 150 000 hectares of other private reserves.
This area is the only place in the Limpopo Province where you can see the rare Yellow-throated Sandgrouse, as well as the majestic Blue Crane, Barrow’s Korhaan and Stanley’s Bustards.
The area has the added attraction of being only two hours away from Gauteng and the O.R. Tambo International Airport.
We pride ourselves on giving our guests friendly, efficient service in true African Bush style.
