The spirit of Shamwari Bayethe Lodge
A splendid stone-walled and thatch roofed lodge, offers its guests secluded tranquility, superb accommodation and pristine wilderness. 12 well-appointed tents are nestled along a river bed and camouflaged under trees, allowing for ample privacy and exceptional comforts. Each tent has a gracious en-suite bathroom and shower, air conditioning, a private viewing deck, sparkling plunge pool and indoor fireplace.
Guest areas include a comfortable sitting room overlooking the river. Dining at the lodge is a social affair; as guests can join enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the bar with their rangers, before tucking into a delectable feast in the outdoor boma. Bayethe offers exhilarating, twice-daily game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles – this includes spotlight night drives and afternoon sundowners in the bush. Guests can also embark on guided nature walks and birdwatching.
