Shiluvari is situated on the bank of the Albasini Dam overlooking the Luonde Mountains. Excellent on-site birding includes 8 different heron species including Black-crowned Night Heron and White-backed Night Heron. African Finfoot and Osprey (summer months) are commonly seen on the dam, Buff-spotted Flufftail are heard and Grey-headed Kingfisher and Honey Buzzard are sometimes seen. Shiluvari specialises in birding activities and offers guided trips into mistbelt forest, Lowveld riverine forest and Miombo woodland.

Shiluvari´s cool, thatched chalets overlook the dam and mountains and can be booked on a bed-and-breakfast or dinner-bed-and-breakfast basis. Birders can request flexible catering arrangements and the Lodge is able to assist with arranging qualified local bird guides.
