Where Wildlife and History Mingle
The Fowlds family began wool farming in 1926 and, since joining the Amakhala Game Reserve as a 3-star lodge, has converted the old shed into a beautiful lodge, a short walk up from the manor house.
Each of our four rooms are en-suite with direct access to the wrap-around verandah with views of the beautiful garden and pool below. Shearers Lodge has been converted and furnished with a contemporary feel, juxtaposed with the old foundations of our sheep shearing shed. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the patio in the morning sunshine.
Shearers Lodge rates include dinner, bed and breakfast. Game drives through the Amakhala Game Reserve are available at an additional cost, subject to availability. You can arrange these directly with us in advance.
Shearer’s offers an ideal base from which to explore the surrounding areas of the Eastern Cape. Addo Elephant National Park lies just 30 kms away; the 1820 Settlers Monument in historical Grahamstown just a 30 minute drive along the N2 highway, and the Born Free Predator Rehabilitation Centre is 10 minutes from the Leeuwenbosch gate. The beautiful beaches of Kenton-on-Sea and Port Alfred are also easily accessed for a day on the beach. Day trip game drives into the Amakhala Game Reserve can be arranged, if required.
