Shamwari Conservation Experience

Extra’s and Services


Wi-Fi vouchers can be purchased to make use of the wireless network service. Due to the relatively rural nature of the facility and position of the lodges, although internet speeds are certainly not up to international urban standards, they have proven to be more than effective for access and communication.

Smartphones and Tabs

As most participants have access to mobile and other electronic devices with which to communicate via data capabilities, bringing such a device would be best suited with which to communicate. Purchase with access to the local Vodacom mobile network service has proven to best serve off-site generic use for communication via mobile telecom and it is advised that this is done at a local airport outlet or local general dealer before arriving at the reserve. (please note - Proctors Lodge has mobile signal - Madolos Lodge is wifi only)

Landline Telephone

Should participants want to make use of the landline on- site, we advise that World Call Card telephone cards be purchased on arrival at PE airport or any Vodacom shop and available at most Post Office outlets. As most participants have access to mobile and other electronic devices with which to communicate, this option is only advised should it be found to be necessary at your time of stay.

Shop Smalls

On-site purchase of small consumables such as soft and energy drinks, chocolates and crisps area available, with a percentage of takings being used to champion the local community.  Also for sale are SCE branded curios made by our local community and in support of their projects.

Spa Treatments

Facials, manicures, pedicures, massages can be arranged with a therapist we have had trained as part of our local community support projects.  It is a very worthwhile indulgence after a long day in the African bush!
