Shayamanzi is about taking time out to appreciate Africa’s special wonders.

Soak up the fresh air and the stunning scenery of the Lebombo Mountains. Enjoy exceptional and safe Game Viewing in the heart of the Zululand’s bushveld while enjoying the calm serenity of the open waters from your luxury cabin, comfy lounge/dining/bar area, sundeck and/or Jacuzzi.

Hop onto a smaller boat to go Tiger Fishing, game viewing or birding.

Daily cruising on the lake, and with an awesome crew at your service on board, you are encouraged to relax and feel the breeze through your hair.  Overnight docking allows lapping water against the boat to soothe you to sleep. Relaxation is our top priority!
