At Shakawa Safaris we can provide you with the African safari hunting experience of a lifetime. With its stunning views of the Soutpansberg Mountains, sublime sunsets and breath-taking night skies, step back in time and experience the fauna and flora that is indigenous to the bush veldt and marvel at the centuries’ old Baobab trees.

Guests of Shakawa (translated means ‘Safe Haven’ in the local dialect) are able to relax in complete privacy; the lodge and estate are reserved exclusively for you, your family or your friends. We now invite you to discover for yourself the safari experience that is Shakawa.

We are situated in the Limpopo Province, which is considered to be the Hunting capital of South Africa. Nearly 65% of all the hunting in South Africa is done here and with good reason. The area is internationally known for consistently producing, each season, high numbers of quality record book sized trophies of species such as the massive Southern Greater Kudu, Southern Impala, Common Waterbuck, Blue Wildebeest, Red Hartebeest, Blesbok, Klipspringer, Limpopo Bushbuck, the beautiful Nyala and the huge Cape Eland. Record book trophies are within reach of every hunter here and new ones are recorded each season.

Limpopo Province, also referred to as the Great North, is an area of incredible contrasts, ranging from true bushveld to rugged mountain ranges. Viewed from the air the country is a collage of farmland, game ranches and untouched rugged wilderness country. It borders the countries of Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique and on its eastern flank is the magnificent and world famous Kruger National Park. In Limpopo Province you will enjoy rugged landscapes, spectacular sunsets, soothing night sounds and incredible birdsong.
