What We Say
The Manor at Samara is an exclusive getaway where you'll be treated to ultimate luxury and total privacy by friendly but unobtrusive staff.

When you arrive at the historic homestead you're greeted with breathtaking views of the extraordinary Karoo mountain landscape unfolding beyond the infinity swimming pool which descends into a waterhole where game are present in the early morning and late afternoon. Simply remarkable.

There are four spacious luxury suites, beds made up using the softest linen.

The large comfortable lounge has a crackling fire when it's cool and large glass doors to the patio. Take time to read an interesting book from the library in the cosy reading nooks.

Dining experiences include boma, veranda, dining-room and breakfast room as well as various bush dining experiences. Other services include a personal ranger, chef and butler.
Samara Private Game Reserve is situated in the malaria-free Eastern Cape where time stands still, inviting you to pause, breathe and reflect. 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. The exclusive manor at Samara can be sold individually or taken as exclusive use, and offers total privacy for parties of up to eight guests in four luxury double en-suite rooms. Services include a personal ranger, a chef and a butler. Unwind on the patio and gaze over the 21 m infinity pool at the waterhole beyond, where game come to slake their thirst in the early morning and late afternoon. Free of the restrictions of the Big 5 reserves, your professional guides will introduce you to the highly endangered cheetah, enabling you to participate in 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 pre-date the dinosaurs and well-preserved Bushman paintings offer a fascinating insight into some of the historical intricacies of our Earths past.
