Best Time to go on Safari

A Year Round Destination

Shambala Private Game Reserve is ideally situated in the malariafree Waterberg mountains of the Limpopo Province and is a year round destination.

In Winter
The winter months from April to October are traditionally considered the best time for game viewing as the grass is shorter and there is less foliage on the trees.

In Summer
During the summer months the bush is green and lush and the game reserve comes to life with abundant young animals.
