Virtual Africa and Shamwari Game Reserve

Where Tiger Woods goes for his African Safari.

Virtual Africa recently created virtual tours and an interactive Google map of the Shamwari Game Reserve in South Africa.

Seeing that it is one of the most exclusive lodges in South Africa, not many people will have the privilege to visit Shamwari in their lifetime, so we thought we’d invite you to visit it virtually.
Use our interactive map of the reserve to explore the luxury lodges and spa’s and maybe, if you’re lucky, you can spot an elephant out of the air.

Voted the World’s Leading Safari and Game Reserve for the past 10 years, this 45 000 hectare private reserve is home to the Big 5 and is one of South Africa’s real tourism gems.
Not satisfied by being the best in the world and hosting guests like John Travolta, Brad Pitt, Nicolas Cage and Tiger Woods, it seems Shamwari is now becoming a television star itself.

Recent years have seen quite a few very popular wildlife documentaries shot in and around the reserve, with the latest offering “Shamwari: a Wild Life” promising to continue the trend.

Starting on Animal Planet in September in the UK and in October in the US, the series centers on the people of Shamwari and their daily interactions with the animals of the reserve.

If the previews are anything to go by, it promises to be action packed and highly entertaining.

It seems to be a mix between reality television and a wildlife documentary – a powerful combination indeed.

See for yourself:

To enable you to explore the reserve before or during the series, Virtual Africa has integrated some 360º images and virtual tours into an interactive Google Map of the area.
The map will allow you to see exactly where Shamwari is situated and explore the lodges and their surroundings in more detail.

Enjoy – see you on safari!
