With top views of the Big Five and a luxury base from which to explore, Long Lee Manor provides the ideal spot in the Shamwari plains that ensures privacy as well as a first-hand experience of the African wilderness for larger groups or couples.
Long Lee Manor is just one of many sister lodges in the Shamwari Game Reserve. Like its sister lodges, it offers incredible opportunities to get close to and explore the surrounding wildlife. The Shamwari area is malaria-free, and has many green initiatives and animals that roam free around it, offering guests a great opportunity to experience the wildlife organically. Game Drives are one of the best ways to explore the surrounding plains. On these, guests can expect to spot elephants, giraffe, hippo, buffalo, zebra, lion, wildebeest, antelope, and hyena, with the chance to also see White and Black Rhino, leopard, cheetah, and wild dog.
There are also plenty of opportunities to learn more about the area and local conservation efforts at the Rhino Awareness Centre, Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, and Born Free Big Cat Rescue Centre, some of an array of resident efforts to prevent poaching and conserve dwindling game populations.
Guest accommodation consists of 10 twin-bedded suites and 5 luxury rooms that can be converted into Super King beds, ideal for larger groups or couples. Each features a patio or balcony, en-suite bathroom with separate shower, and private minibars. Edwardian in style, the décor is designed to invoke a sense of colonial-style living. One of the rooms is designed to accommodate physically impaired guests.
The Manor boasts a number of great communal spaces in which guests can kick back and relax overlooking rolling landscapes. There are two swimming pools, a relaxation retreat, a fitness centre and steam room, indoor and outdoor dining facilities, and, for larger groups or businesses, a conference room suitable for up to 35 delegates.
Long Lee Manor is ideally suited for larger groups of adults and couples. Families with younger children would want to visit Long Lee Manor’s sister camp, Riverdene Lodge, which has accommodation and activities more than suitable for families with adventurous young children, or the Sarili Lodge, which is designed for exclusive use by families with older children.

We had a fantastic trip thanks to your organisation! No problems encountered at all! Simbavarti were a joy to stay and explore with; the hotel in Capetown perfectly positioned to allow us to walk to the conference, and Camps bay accommodation was just lovely. The flights, transfers and staff we met along the way we're all very friendly and helpful. Having a car at the end was a perfect finale. My 10 yr old daughter came home with new insights on the world.
I had been meaning on my return to email you, but launched straight back into a weekend oncall and business as usual, so thanks for emailing.
I have sung your praises to friends and family!

Service rating : Good engagement and all comments were incorporated in the itinerary proposal. Good availability and plenty of patience to accommodate changes. Clear itinerary and details about accommodations and activities. Could have been improved with SatNav details when places were in more remote places.
Product : Many of the places we stayed were really exclusive and I would not have been able to find them independently so it was a great service from Tour Dust.
