Samara Private Game Reserve

Luxury Hotel

Award-winning Samara Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape is located within one of 36 Global Biodiversity Hotspots, the Maputaland – Pondoland – Albany thicket. Family run for 21 years this 67,000-acre reserve is slowly beginning to recover from the effects of generations of agricultural exploitation. The haunting beauty of the landscape that first inspired Samara’s campaign of rejuvenation has been allowed to return. An ambitious programme of land rehabilitation and wildlife reintroduction has brought the land back to life. Herds of springbok, black wildebeest, zebra and eland now roam the Plains of Camdeboo. Rhino, elephant and cheetah meander across the veld once more. More than a century after it was last seen, the lion reigns again. An amazing life-changing and wonderfully relaxing experience awaits as you experience the rebirth of a unique piece of Africa and a luxury safari in the Graaff-Reinet region of the Eastern Cape.
