Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge
Set in the heart of a nature conservancy on the banks of the Albasini dam overlooking the Soutpansberg mountains one will discover Shiluvari Lakeside lodge.

Nestling amongst centuries old Wild Fig trees with sweeping views of the Soutpansberg mountains Shiluvari is the ideal base to explore the diverse natural and cultural heritage of the Land of Legend.

Once the old farmhouse, the main Lodge now boasts an intimate country restaurant and lounge area, complete with a fireplace and stunning views of the surrounds. Enjoy the sumptuous cuisine with it`s Afro-fusion style which incorporates both the best of local and European tastes.

The tastefully decorated thatched chalets are each decorated with a different theme all of which incorporates elements from the local artists.

Shiluvari is set in 30 hectares of natural vegetation and offers you the opportunity to walk through the estate where you may see some of the game species that frequent the area. Waterbuck, Kudu, Bushbuck and Duiker are often seen grazing and browsing in the lodge grounds.

    Our accommodation consists of charming thatched chalets situated apart from the main Lodge and all have views overlooking the Lake.

    All the chalets have en-suite bathrooms, one can choose between family cottages (sleeping 4) or smaller chalets sleeping 2.

    Also available are self-catering chalets, with each chalet having a fully equipped kitchenette as well as braai facilities on the deck outside.

    In keeping with the idea of escaping city life, one will not find a television or phones in the room, however both these services are available in the main Lodge, in addition to fax and e-mail.

    Our country restaurant is fully licensed, and we served full breakfasts daily as well as a 3-course home-style country meal in the evening.

    Throughout the day, once can choose a light meal from our light lunch and snack menu.

    Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge Activities:

    For the more energetic, explore the 60- hectare property of natural bush following the trails along the Dam or into the Bush.

    Cycling and walking trails are also available.

    Whilst studying the abundance of bird life, look out for duiker, bushbuck, waterbuck or kudu. Or simply laze next to the pool admiring the view.

    In the evening, sip a sundowner drink whilst enjoying a sunset cruise on our motorised raft, while keeping and eye out for the Hippo and Crocodile lazily basking on the side of our water.

    Shiluvari is well located amongst many world-renowned artists in pottery,wood carvers and traditional textile manufacturers. The diversity of cultural heritage is among the richest in South Africa. We will arrange a visit for you to these artists and sculptors.

    Health & Climate:

    Winters are usually mild during the day, but can reach 0 degrees late at night or early morning.
    Our winters usually stretch from May- September, although May can also be a very pleasant and mild month.

    September is the beginning of Spring and summer usually arrives in full force from the beginning of October.
    October is renowned for being the hottest month of the year, so dont forget the hat and suncreen!

    Another consideration to take into account is the fact that our rainy season is during our summer months, usually beginning from November through to March, with November and February being the wettest months.

    Lovely setting. Excellent service. Nothing better than hearing the call of Africa (African Fish Eagle) One feels part of Africa - in an up market way.
