Situated in a place where time stands still, Samara Private Game Reserve offers unique wildlife and spectacular Karoo Mountain scenery. This beautiful South African Eastern Cape reserve provides a tranquil escape to soothe the soul and uplift even the weariest traveller as you gaze across the vast open spaces and stunning terrain reaching to far distant horizons.
Combining colonial luxurious comforts with the essence of Mother Nature, the Karoo Lodge treats you to exceptional service, enabling you to relax and allow the tranquillity of the Karoo Mountains to envelop your soul.
The Lodge Suites are situated in the main homestead and are light and airy, all opening out on to the wide wrap-around veranda. Each has a luxury en-suite bathroom and is air-conditioned. One extra bed can be accommodated for families with a child.
The Sibella Suites are two delightful suites each with an en-suite shower and sharing a wooden deck overlooking the waterhole with abundant birdlife. They are both air-conditioned.
There are two spa treatment rooms at the Karoo Lodge for some much-welcomed pampering, plus an outdoor swimming pool and tennis court.
The Manor House
You will arrive at this historic homestead and witness truly breathtaking views of the extraordinary Karoo mountain landscape, which unfolds over a 21m infinity pool, which leads to a waterhole at which game often arrives in the early morning and late afternoon.
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. Take time to read an interesting book from the library in the cosy reading nooks.
