Sprawled over 28 000 hectares (70 000 acres) of pristine wilderness, the spectacular malaria-free Samara Private Game Reserve offers safari enthusiasts exhilarating adventures and a plethora of wildlife. Guests are spoilt for choice as the reserve boasts two superlative retreats – Karoo Lodge and The Manor at Samara. Karoo Lodge offers six exceptional suites (four lodge suites, three Karoo suites and two Sibella Suite) – each with a lovely ensuite bathroom, air conditioning and private veranda. The Manor at Samara is a sole-use homestead and is ideal for families or groups of eight. It features four luxurious suites with beautiful ensuite bathrooms, a wrap-around veranda and a large infinity pool.
What we love about Samara Karoo Lodge
- Discover the secrets of Samara on a “thinking safari” as you explore the untouched Plains of Camdeboo that once staged the massive migration of millions of springbok.
- Fossils that predate dinosaurs and well-preserved Khoisan paintings offer fascinating insight into the intricacies of South Africa’s rich pre-colonial history.
- Experience the thrill of tracking cheetah on foot — with the help of a radio collar, expert guides allow you to step off the game viewing vehicle and walk among magnificent cats that may be lazing under a bush or shepherd tree.
