It was a great experience! Greg and Robert guided us safely through the reserve and they were able to expand our horizons for wildlife conservation. The other highlights were certainly the cultural insights and the giraffes up close. We will come back with pleasure!

A quick course on how to canoe and we were off to our hike destination, but also were given the option to take the motorboat over if we wanted. The walk was incredible. We learnt about tracking animals movements and how to tell if an animal is near, we tracked a small heard of giraffes and got super close! It was incredible. They expalained about all the work they do and an insight to what their daily lives are and how they are trying to better the area. Definitely a memorable experience we would do again, and much more rewarding and adventurous way to view the beautiful animals of South Africa.

It was amazing, breathtaking scenery and the animals made it super special… the guides was experienced and made the trip very special.
We had great time hiking and kayaking around Shongweni Reserve. We learnt much about the animals and their habitat, as well as anout the culture and way of life in the local communities. It was amazing that only short drive away from Durban you can experience such tranquility and feel so close to nature. We really enjoyed ourselves and can warmly recommend this experience to all who are visiting Durban.
Lovely Experience. Thank you Sara and Team 🙂

This was a great experience! We saw zebra and giraffe, and our guides were very knowledgeable and kind. It was a very special morning!
Experiencia muy diferente a las ofertas habituales. De gran calidad humana y mucha proximidad.

Located inside a beautiful nature reserve, the views were spectacular. We would love to return to camp inside the reserve next time as they have these facilities available too.
Amazing experience at Shongweni dam and Nature reserve. Although only 30 minutes from bustling city life of Durban the location of the dam and nature reserve takes you to the heart of local tribal communities. Advertised as canoeing and wildlife watching, it is so much more than just that. Highly recommended!
The guide’s experienced eye helped us see the landscape in a whole new way as he pointed out all the signs of what animals had been in the area and which way they had gone. We tracked and approached several zebra and giraffes, getting closer than any of us had expected! We had a great experience, and I would highly recommend!
Thank you everyone at Shongweni for such a great time! We all enjoyed the hike and learning more about the amazing sustainability work you guys are doing.
