A beautiful safari lodge with 7 individual rooms and suites (available separately or in multiple numbers) with its own shark tank, a stunning lounge and dining area, pool, spa and tropical gardens.
This is the owners’ former residence and has varying room sizes and designs. These include rooms for 2 to 4 guests and large two bedroom suites that can accommodate up to 4 adults and 2 children, or 2 adults and 4 children. You can book an individual room or mutiple rooms, including all of uShaka Lodge!
Your adventure starts in the uShaka Lodge living area, with a magnificent shark tank extending from one end to the other and with two of the coolest Colobus monkeys watching you from the other side! From the minute you walk in the door you will be transported to deepest Africa – every part of uShaka is decorated in a truly African lodge theme and features fine carvings, artworks and artefacts from throughout the African continent.
The indoor and outdoor entertaining areas are only metres from the edge of Lake Burley Griffin and have magnificent views across the lake to Black Mountain. uShaka is the Zulu word for shark, but also refers to Shaka Zulu, who was one of the most influential monarchs of the Zulu kingdom and a stay here combines the magnificence of Africa with the wonders of the ocean.
Please note, uShaka Lodge is for the exclusive use of those guests staying in uShaka Lodge rooms, however guests staying in Jungle Bungalows and Giraffe Treehouses are welcome to enjoy the lodge lounge area for afternoon tea and after the morning tour until the 11am checkout. When Jamala is at capacity, uShaka guests will have pre-dinner drinks at Rainforest Cave and may then dine upstairs with the sharks.
