Adrian Gardiner has left a deep spoor in the global conservation community and in the hospitality industry. It all began in the Eastern Cape where he founded the legendary Shamwari Game Reserve. He now offers a small, select number of guests the opportunity to stay over at his original residence, the secluded Founders Lodge, and to experience all of its serenity as well as viewing the Big Five at the adjacent Shamwari.
