About Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge

Set against a backdrop of mountains and forests, ancient ruins and sacred lakes, Shiluvari welcomes you to the warm heart of ancient Venda and promises to restore your natural rhythm and faith in mankind.

Shiluvari's cool, thatched chalets with sweeping views of the Lake and Luonde mountians are the idea base from which to explore the many local artists and crafters which make up this heady mix.

On site, you will find the old farmhouse restaurant and swimming pool, as well as the 'Savannah' - Shiluvari's very own motorised raft which will take you on a lazy journey on the banks of the Levubu River whilst keeping an eye out for the resident hippo and croc... Facilities nearby include walking & hiking trails, horse riding and many local cultural activities.
