The old railway training college was built with imported bricks by Scottish masons in 1900. Now declared a national monument, it has undergone a metamorphosis and emerged as the main building of a prestigious hotel.
During its restoration, the bricks in a certain section were painstakingly removed one by one, cleaned and reset. Bushman Sands Golf Lodge comprises individual buildings around a pool area and overlooking the Bushman Sands Golf Course.
Working with Shamwari's conservation team, Bushman Sands have reintroduced indigenous animals to the reserve, restoring the environment to its natural state. Animals that once roamed freely over 200 years ago have been reintegrated into their natural habitat.
