Since 1997, Samara has pioneered the rewilding of the Great Karoo in an effort to restore the area to its former glory. Today thousands of wild animals roam the born-again wilderness. Samara is working with local stakeholders to broaden the scope of this conservation ethic across the landscape.
The two intimate owner-run lodges invite guests to join in Samara’s conservation journey. With a warm Karoo welcome, staying at Samara you will be immersed in the magic of the landscapes and experience a deep reconnection with nature.
The Karoo Lodge is a lovingly-restored farmhouse with an authentic rustic charm. Nine suites offer modern-day comforts with a feeling of perfect pastoral peace.
Contemporary style meets Karoo-living in the Manor House. The Manor House is an elegant four-bedroom villa, suitable for couples and families alike.
Staying at Samara, every guest plays a role in safeguarding the landscape, but the magic also extends beyond its conservation importance.
A unique African Safari experience awaits at Samara with its myriad activities on offer to explore, entertain and educate – from daily game drives to tracking sessions, conservation activities, wilderness picnics and fly camping.
