The five star, multi-award winning Samara Private Game Reserve, is situated in the malaria-free Eastern Cape, where the Karoo keeps its secrets. Surrounded by an amphitheatre of mountains and facing the legendary Plains of Camdeboo, time stands still inviting you to pause, breathe, reflect and discover the Africa one always dreams and reads about with spectacular sunsets and starry skies.
It is the haunting beauty of this fragile area that first inspired Samara's campaign of rehabilitation and renewal. Since 1997 the main objective has been to realise the land's full potential, not only as an area of outstanding natural diversity - this vast area includes four of South Africa's seven biomes - but also as home to an ambitious programme of game reintroduction, especially that of the highly endangered cheetah, into its natural habitat.
This retreat in ancient Africa offers accommodation in two lodges:
Luxury Karoo cottages in the garden and spacious en-suite rooms in the restored homestead offer colonial style comfort to a maximum of 18 guests. Relax on the wide wrap-around veranda or cool off in the pool. A comfortable lounge, elegant dining-room and cosy pub complete this Lodge.
