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.
