Long Lee Manor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 January 2016

The travel review sites, booking sites, etc, just do not do this place justice ! This is one of those places that just has to be experienced, to fully appreciate what it has to offer. Long Lee Manor, was simply stunning in its beauty and history. I can go on and on about the high level of comfort we experienced, but I must say it was the staff that makes this Manor what it is. A throw back from the British times, this Manor show its splendor when you fully take in its beauty and allow the Manor to engulf you in its charm. Comfortable and relaxing rooms will help you to unwind after a full schedule on the game drive and the excitement of seeing the Big 5. Not only would I highly recommend Long Lee Manor, but I would say it is a "must experience" location. I also strongly recommend the spa ! you will love the pampering and relaxation.

Room Tip: wifi only available in the bar or dinning area, no in room wifi, all rooms have excellent views

We were there for only one night and with only two game drives we almost got to see the Big Five. The Ranger, Tiem, was the best. He really knew the place and took us to great views. He was actually really good spotting animals, even hidden ones, so with his help we got to see rhinos, hippos, lions, giraffes, zebras and all sort of antelopes. The crew at the Lodge was also great. Really a great experience!

As you may see in my other reviews, they are all dependent to my expectations. These were indeed extremely high for Shamwari. I can say, they still managed to exceed.. Thank you for this wonderful stay.

Everything is truly perfect here. The service is splendid, the location and the premises are most lovely, the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the food is very nice and the best of it all are obviously the game drives and our ranger Steff:

although she is pretty new in Shamwari she managed to give us a great experience in just one day. We ve seen all the exciting animals like lions, cheetahs, elephants, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, and also many antelopes and birds. She did a very good job explaining everything we wanted to know.

Thank you again for this perfect stay. This was the best Christmas present we could imagine!

Long Lee Manor provides a first class safari experience! We stayed for 3 nights and loved every minute of our stay. The accommodation was really spacious, modern and extremely comfortable and Monde and all the staff were exceptionally helpful and obliging. The safaris themselves were great. Our ranger, Alex, was perfect - really knowledgable, calm and super-competent! We saw a huge variety of wildlife including lions, cheetahs, elephants, hippos, black & white rhinos, giraffes etc and we were also fortunate to see various forms of animal behaviour - hippos tussling in the water, elephants playing, giraffes fighting etc .There are 2 outdoor pools where you can relax between safari drives with great views over the plains, although the spare time went really quickly and we always seemed to be sitting down for meals somewhere! All in all, a very special and enjoyable experience!
