Shabanga is home to many different types of animals and plant species. In the early hours of the morning Bushbuck or Grey Duiker can be seen grazing on the lawns in front of your room and at night the distinctive mating call of the Night Jar will most definitely be heard! Shabanga is also home to the infamous Umtiza tree which only grows in the East London area.
