overlooks the Bushman's River Valley in the Shamwari Game reserve.
Long Lee's sumptuous accommodation includes bedrooms in the Manor

Activities from Long Lee Manor include morning and evening game

ranger. The modern Land Rovers converted into open viewing. Each
vehicle has a trained ranger who will increase your enjoyment
with his knowledge of both the flora and fauna. The rangers are
in 2-way communication with each other at all times, so on any

such as the rare Black Rhino.
