ACCOMMODATION: Shakama Private Game Lodge offers accommodation to twenty four (sharing) or twelve (single) guests and falls within a malaria-free area. The rustic yet elegant accommodation consists of ten fully serviced thatched suites, all with bathrooms en-suite. Six of these chalets also have outdoor showers in addition to the bathrooms. All suites have private decks overlooking a ravine of unspoilt nature. In addition to the main lodge, Shakama now also boasts a fully serviced self-catering camp. Eagles Nest - sleeping up to ten guests, five per chalet. The lodge and chalets are built against a slope - as a result stairs between different floor levels were unavoidable. The accommodation may therefore not be suitable for persons in wheelchairs.
ENTERTAINMENT AREA: A full bar, lounge and dining area opening up onto a large wooden deck are the focal point of social activities.
DINING: Superb cuisine - served next to an open log fire or inside the dining area. Romantic dinner settings are our speciality.
CONFERENCE FACILITIES: Less than two hours drive from Johannesburg and Johannesburg International airport, Shakama Private Game Lodge is the ideal venue for small conferences, strategic planning sessions or simply getting away from it all. The Induna room offers the ideal setting for meetings (boardroom style) or seminars (classroom style) with white boards, overhead projector, TV, VCR and screens. This conference room offers comfortable seating for up to 30 delegates. The lodge area also offers comfortable seating areas for four break-away groups - and of course, lots of space outdoors.
RECREATION & LEISURE: Shakama offers the following recreational facilities: Bush drives Walking trails Swimming pool Volley ball and table tennis Pool table, board games and reading Stargazing Bird watching Clay pigeon shooting
WILDLIFE: The farm covers 640 hectares of natural landscape and lies in the centre of over 10 000 hectares of bushveld ranches. The owners have embarked on a programme, based on ecological study, to raise a number of indigenous game species. Right now there are over 17 species of game already roaming the farm including Zebra and (the elusive) Leopard, but excluding the members of the "Big 5" making it safe to take leisurely walks. Shakama is also home to a host of bird species which is bound to intrigue the avid bird watcher. Bush drives can be extended (subject to prior arrangement) to visit the adjoining farm to view Buffalo and Hippo (amongst other exotic species). Shakama is ideally suited for eco-tourism offering clear views of game and an endless variety of natural habitat.
