Founders Lodge is a little jewel in the heart of the Eastern Cape bushveld and a warm yet sophisticated safari-stay option—most definitely one of my favourites! Situated on a 400 hectare reserve adjacent to the Big 5 Shamwari Game Reserve (with lodge access through Shamwari), the game experience was great! Game drives with professional and knowledgeable rangers took place on the Shamwari Game Reserve while we had the chance to explore the finer little treasures of nature with a guided walk on the Founders Reserve. The lodge experience was intimate with six beautifully appointed rooms, while friendly and professional staff made us feel like the most important members of the Founders family. As it was a chilly evening, we had a chance to warm up in front of the indoor fireplace before a delicious braai-style dinner was served in the dining room.
