Wake up to the sound of silence

Experience a private guided walk

There are few things more romantic than shared experiences that make memories to last a lifetime. Embark on a journey of discovery with one of Samara’s expert guides to learn about the wild and our place within it. Track cheetah on foot, hike to wild olive groves and feel yourself reconnecting with Nature.

Indulge in our river lunch

Sit back in your canvas chair as the cool, clear water flows past your ankles. Sip on a glass of sparkling wine as you hold your beloved’s hand. The perfect respite from a hot summer’s day.

Enjoy an Eagle Rock sundowner

One of Samara’s highest vantage points, Eagle Rock offers views stretching over 150 kilometres on a clear day. Home to a nesting pair of Black Eagles, this is the ideal spot for a romantic sundowner. Or indeed, a proposal.

Sit down to a starlit dinner for two

Samara’s abundance of stunning scenery lends itself perfectly to outdoor dining at its finest. Whether on your own private veranda or out in the bush, treat yourself to an intimate dining experience as the night sky unfolds to reveal a ceiling of stars.
