Samara Private Game Reserve, Eastern Cape, South Africa
Samara Karoo Lodge is set in the unique location of the Samara Private Game Reserve, a truly magical area of sweeping landscapes and dramatic escarpments. The reserve prides itself on cheetah conservation; however, rhino, giraffe, two species of zebra, and the elusive aardvark can be commonly sighted here as well.
At the Karoo Lodge, guests stay warm and cozy inside of the 10 individually decorated suites and central living quarters. Although shared with expert guides and helpful staff members, this mountain retreat exudes a deep feeling of intimacy. Guests can dine in a variety of spots on the property such as, in the formal dining room, on the veranda, the lawn, in the traditional boma, or even out in the bush. Many guests also prefer to utilize the vast amenities like the swimming pool, tennis courts, and bar area. Surrounded by 70,000 acres of pristine land occupied by four of South Africa’s seven biomes, you’ll never miss out on any of the action during your stay. At the Samara Karoo Lodge, the wildlife are just as welcome as the guests.
