UNIQUE SELLING POINTS
  •   "Heart-stoppingly beautiful" is how award-winning Samara Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape is best described. Elegant lodges provide luxury accommodation nestled between an amphitheatre of mountains on 70,000 acres, where wildlife roams again.
  •    If you choose, you can leave the game for another day and indulge in the luxury of your suite and let our experienced therapist ease your stress away with her aromatic oils and local charm.
  •   Surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of mountains, Karoo Lodge sits in perfect serenity in the reserve's pristine wilderness. Combining colonial comforts with the essence of Mother Nature, the Lodge treats you to exceptional service, enabling you to relax and allow the tranquillity of the Karoo to envelop your soul.
  •   Samara Game Reserve is proud to be home of many Aardvark and is one of very few places in South Africa where you can spot the elusive Aardvark. Samara will whisk you off just after dark or after dinner and include Aardvark viewing together with your evening game drives.

ABOUT SAMARA PRIVATE GAME LODGE

Samara Private Game Reserve is in the malaria free Eastern Cape and is home to 3 special lodges, The Manor at Samara & Karoo Lodge.

Discover the Africa one has always dreamt and read about, with vast open plains, spectacular sunsets and starry skies with the Milky Way so close.

Spend your days on safari with experienced rangers and trackers and visit the unspoilt plains of Camdeboo where the majestic cheetah reigns once more and the endangered mountain zebra wander on the endless grassy plains. Free of the restrictions of the Big 5 reserves, your professional guide will introduce you to the highly endangered Cheetah, enabling you to participate in an exclusive interaction with these graceful predators.
 

THE MANOR AT SAMARA

The Manor at Samara is for the exclusive use of up to 8 guests in ultimate luxury and total privacy with every whim being anticipated by friendly but unobtrusive staff.

The Manor is unique in its warm design which reflects the local landscape and traditions whilst retaining a lovely light twist. The style of the Manor is the inspiration of well known South African designer, John Zwiegelaar of John Jacob Interiors.

You will arrive at this historic homestead and upon entering, breathtaking views of this extraordinary Karoo mountain landscape will unfold over a 21m infinity pool which descents into a waterhole at which game can be present in the early morning and later afternoon. Relax in four spacious luxury air-conditioned suites. Beds are made up with the softest linen that lulls you to sleep and all suites have large en-suite bathrooms with separate showers and free standing baths. Unwind in the large comfortable lounge where a crackling fire burns in the winter months and the large glass doors to the patio are cast wide open in the summer.
