  •    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.
