About Shamwari Bayethe Tented Lodge

The name "Bayethe" comes from an African greeting that, when translated directly, means "I salute you". This conveys the deep respect and the warm welcome that is such an important part of African culture. And it's this warmth and honour that shines through at the gorgeous Bayethe Tented Lodge.

The lodge offers a spectacular safari experience, where guests are invited to indulge in the serenity of their surrounds and the unique beauty of the lodge's setting. The views of the African bush are breath-taking and the solitude unrivalled.
