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.

Karoo Suites:
Karoo cottages in the garden. Each suite has a luxury bathroom, air-conditioning and a fireplace.

Lodge Suites:
Situated in the main homestead, The suites have air-conditioning and an en-suite bathroom. They are light, airy and open onto the verandah.

Sibella Suites:
Charming rooms that open onto the deck which overlooks a watering hole.


Indulge in the delectable offerings of our Karoo Kitchen – food which is influenced by the past but with a modern twist. Meals are all served in magical settings, both in-door and out.


Free of the restrictions of the Big Five reserves, your professional guides will introduce you to the highly endangered cheetah, enabling you to participate in an exclusive interaction with these graceful predators.

Discover the secrets of Samara as you explore the untouched Plains of Camdeboo viewing magnificent herds of antelope or gaze down on the same plains from the mountain plateau where the endangered Cape Mountain Zebra have found safe haven.

Fossils that predate the dinosaurs and well-preserved Bushman paintings offer a fascinating insight into some of the historical intricacies of our Earth’s past.
