Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge overview

Shiluvari Lakeside Lodge is set against a backdrop of mountains and forests, holy lakes and sacred ruins, in the heart of Ancient Venda culture. This is a great place to relax and unwind, enjoy the views of the Albasini Dam and Luonde Mountains in 30 hectares of natural land in the Albasini Conservancy which is home to many bird species, small antelope such as bushbuck and duiker and nocturnal mammals including genets and civets.

The main lodge, was once the old farmhouse and has an award winning Wood-Owl country restaurant, the Hog & Hound bar and fireplace. There is a “Textures” art shop, a terrace for al-fresco dining and a lakeside swimming pool. There is a motorized raft, ‘the Savannah,' for sunset cruises along the Luvuvhu River. The friendly staff are all excellent and attentive.

There are a mix of standard rooms, thatched chalets and a family suite, all privately situated away from each other and all being furnished with traditional, local decorations and having mosquito nets, hair dryers, safes, tea and coffee facilities.

One of Shiluvari's main aims is to promote the local artists of the region which is incredibly rich in arts and culture. The Venda people are at the heart of this and the lodge offers the Ribolla Arts Route which show cases the artists of the region. Plus there are textile weaver, beeders, wood carvers and potters. Guided tours are available in the region including to the Venda myths and legends routes.

Shiluvari has been involved in Fair Trade Tourism since the lodge started in 1995 and was one of the first lodges in South Africa to be acredited with the recognition from FTTSA (Fair Trade Tourism South Africa).
