Shamwari Game Reserve’s Founders Lodge is the benchmark in safari.
Founders Lodge is a private game lodge that borders the world-famous Shamwari Private Game Reserve. Formerly the private residence of Shamwari founder Adrian Gardner, the exclusive lodge has been renovated and expanded to accommodate guests from all over the globe, many of them celebrities and dignitaries.
