Samara Private Game Reserve is a highly recommended Eastern Cape game lodge providing a wildlife experience for discerning tourists visiting Karoo Heartland.

About Samara Private Game Reserve

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 near Graaff-Reinet.

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. Samara is located in a malaria-free area.

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.
