    My girlfriend and I are going to Shamwari next May. What lodge could you recommend for us? We are looking for a place modern, with a good view and private bathroom. Are the games (safaris) included on the daily prices? Even if I reserve using hotels . com? Are there walkings safaris? Are the beverages included on the daily prices? Where could we see more informations about the spa, including treatments and prices? Best Regards, Rafael
