Holiday with purpose

Conservation safari

Every Samara guest helps us to achieve our conservation vision simply by choosing to support us. We also offer active participation in our various conservation projects.

For those who want to delve a little deeper, to understand how a game reserve truly operates behind the scenes, we offer hands-on conservation sessions and personalised tours of our rewilding projects. These can be pre-booked at the time of reservation, or you can opt for our Conservation Journey package — a thoughtfully-crafted itinerary that enables participants to develop a meaningful understanding of Samara’s conservation efforts.
