About Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge

Waterbuck, Kudu, Bushbuck and Duiker are often seen grazing and browsing in the lodge grounds. Enjoy a sundowner cruise on the "Savannah" on the Levubu river and enjoy a cocktail whilst seeing the sun go down and listening to the call of the Fiery necked nightjar as evening falls.

Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge is situated in the heart of many varied world renown artists and local crafters - this diversity is amongst the richest in Southern Africa and we will gladly arrange a visit for you - a truly unforgettable experience. So, come and share our secret and join us in a truly memorable experience at Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge.


The accommodation at Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge consists of charming thatched chalets situated apart from the main Lodge and all have views overlooking the Lake. Choose between family cottages sleeping 4 or smaller chalets sleeping 2.

All the chalets have en-suite bathrooms, lounge and kitchenette area, tea/coffee facilities, overhead fans, mosquito nets and a private verandah with a braai area. 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.


Shiluvari’s on-site restaurant, well known for its delicious “afro-fusion” cuisine, is open for breakfast and dinner daily. The simplistic approach is evident in utilization of fresh, local ingredients, beautiful presentation and a fine balance of African flavour and European sophistication.

Amongst the most popular dishes you will find Sweet potato and Avocado soup, Seared beef fillet crusted with African spices and butternut “chips”, mango ice-cream and chocolate & chili sauce. All dietary requirements are catered for, including vegetarian, halaal, kosher and diabetic.

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 waters.
