Founders Lodge was the private residence of Adrian Gardiner, founder and visionary of Mantis Collection and Shamwari Game Reserve.
The lodge is situated on a 400 hectare reserve adjacent to and with direct access to Shamwari Game Reserve, in the malaria free Eastern Cape of South Africa.
With the co-operation and agreement of the current owners of Shamwari, Founders Lodge has undergone extensive renovations to enable Adrian and Mantis to convert Founders into a self-contained commercial lodge. For the Big 5 experience, Founders Lodge has an agreement with the current owners of Shamwari for game drives to take place on their world-renowned reserve. The entrance to the Big 5 reserve is 50 meters from Founders Lodge. Guided walks will take place on the Founders private 400 hectare reserve.
The secluded Founders Lodge, with only 6 suites and scenic surrounds, aspires to offer private tailored experiences, drawing inspiration from all the fond memories Adrian had of hosting friends, family and celebrities at Shamwari.
