The main feature of this game reserve is that you can walk about safely since there are no nasty animals, though the game they have are quite timid when you are on foot. Additionally, the very helpful manager will take you on a good game drive and you will see some more animals; we had great close encounters with a herd of giraffes. The three bungalows are large and well equipped and have a great outside braai with plenty of wood provided. In addition you can use the clubhouse with a bar and living room and there is a clean pool. Come equipped since you will not want to waste time driving to get provisions!

I had a wonderful 1 week stay at Shakati hiking and game viewing. The boma with braai/barbecue fire in evenings are stunning and something very special South African. I also visited the spectacular Marakele national park nearby and saw both elephants and a lion. Very much recommended.
