Shamwari Game Reserve is located 75 km outside Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape, South Africa. It has been voted the World's Leading Safari and Game Reserve and Conservation Company for many consecutive years.
An essential focus is the management, development and rehabilitation of an ecosystem that has been returned to a more natural condition after many years of farming.
In 2005 the reserve was awarded the Global Nature Fund Award for Best Conservation Practice.
The British TV series of Safari School was filmed here. The Animal Planet series titled "Shamwari: A wild life" was also filmed at the game reserve. The show highlighted what goes on behind the scenes at the reserve.
The Born Free Foundation jointly funds a sanctuary at Shamwari that gives lifetime care to several lions and leopards that have been discovered in poor conditions in circuses or zoos around the world. They have two centres on the reserve, one in the north and one in the south.
