Eagles Crag offers you ultimate luxury and privacy and breath-taking scenery. Eagles Crag comprises 9 luxurious suites fashioned of glass and stone.
Not only is the accommodation classically beautiful, but you’re also exposed to uninterrupted views of the surrounding rock faces where eagles soar.

Eagles Crag has undergone extensive upgrades and renovations and re-opened September 2018.
At Shamwari Private Game Reserve, we not only offer our guests 5-star luxury accommodation, but pride ourselves on presenting wildlife interaction that is sure to be the highlight of your stay. Coupled with the African horizon and spectacular skies, we offer game drives through the reserve for an experience of a lifetime.
Our game viewing drives are available for morning and afternoon trips, as this is when the animals are most active. Our vehicles are open and comfortable, and give you a panoramic view of the area. You’ll be guided by one of our trained game rangers who’ll take you and your party through the reserve, encountering many animals along the way.
The game drives themselves last for approximately three to four hours and take you through the reserve. Included on the game drive is a coffee stop for the morning drive and a sun-downer stop in the evening.
Not only do we offer unforgettable views and 5-star luxury accommodation, but we also have a host of activities available, including bird watching.
This malaria-free area of the Eastern Cape, South Africa, is home to a host of wild game, Big 5, and beautiful birds. Ornithologists and bird watching hobbyists alike are treated to an array of birds of prey sightings
