About Samara Karoo Lodge
Samara Private Game Reserve is situated in the malaria-free Eastern Cape where time stands still inviting you to pause, breathe, reflect. Here you will find the very inviting Karoo Lodge, offering fabulous accommodation.
It is the haunting beauty of this fragile area that first inspired Samara's campaign of rehabilitation and renewal. Since 1997 their main objective has been to realise the land's full potential, not only as an area of outstanding natural diversity - this vast area includes four of South Africa's seven biomes - but also as home to an ambitious programme of game reintroduction especially that of the highly endangered cheetah, into its natural habitat.
Discover the Africa one always dreams and reads about with spectacular sunsets and starry skies, surrounded by 70 000 protected acres in the Great Karoo.
Colonial style accommodation and comfort is offered to a maximum of 20 guests in Karoo Lodge. Relax on the wide wrap around veranda, cool off in the pool or pamper yourself with a soothing in-room massage.
