Experience the exquisite grace of a bygone era at the elegant Long Lee Manor. Set on the Shamwari Game Reserve in the rugged Eastern Cape Province, the original Long Lee Manor house was built in 1910. Today guests staying at Long Lee Manor in Shamwari Private Reserve, enjoy a distinctive Colonial feel in this untamed bush setting. The masterfully restored manor house accommodates up to 38 guests in its 19 stylish and comfortable en-suite rooms and spacious family suites. These well-appointed manor bedrooms are all fitted with air-conditioning and under-floor heating.
This gracious Edwardian-style House exudes an atmosphere of luxury and ease, surpassing the norm for bush accommodation. The refined atmosphere is complimented by lovely views and French doors that open onto the rolling river meadows and expansive lawns. In springtime the palm trees in the outdoor court area come alive with nesting weaver birds.
Long Lee Manor is ideal for families with children, featuring special family suites, with the Sidbury Wing being tucked away from the manor house. Sumptuous meals are served in the main dining room or around the flickering open fire at the barn. There is also a river lapa for the option of alfresco dining.
Between game drives guests are free to laze around the two swimming pools, relax in the beautifully appointed garden lounge, or enjoy a rejuvenating treatment in the spa. Long Lee Manor is a nostalgic reminder of an era of gracious living. As the flagship of Private Shamwari - Long Lee Manor overlooks the sweeping plains leading down to the Bushmans River.
