Paradise On Earth In The Waterberg

‘Shambala’ is a Tibetan word, meaning ‘Paradise on Earth’. Whether you discover it in the Bush, the Mountains or the silence; whether you feel it in the air or see it in the magnificent, proud wildlife of this land, your own paradise is here, deep within the heart and soul of Shambala.

A gentle drive through shallow waters forms a spectacular natural entrance to the paradise where peace, tranquility and harmony are part of everyday life. There is an overwhelming awareness of being an intrinsic part of nature, surrounded by the sound of birdcalls and a vast expanse of bushveld that is home to many and varied wildlife species.



The Big Five have always been renowned as being the fiercest and most dangerous animals. Being able to see these magnificent animals roaming free in their natural habitat is without a doubt one of the most wonderful memories that you will take away with you.
