Experience Samara for yourself

"Above all thank you for making us have such a wonderfully restorative, educational and enjoyable few days. It was perhaps the most truly different holiday I have had."


With tens of thousands of acres of wilderness at your disposal, there are many ways to enjoy Samara, whatever the type of holiday you are planning. From romantic getaways to child-friendly safaris, intergenerational travel to milestone celebrations, Samara has something for everyone. Those with an interest in conservation can choose to combine their luxury getaway with conservation activities during their stay, or go behind-the-scenes on our Conservation Volunteer Programme for a few weeks.

Of course, if the pure Karoo air and serenity of our lodges compels you to simply relax and recharge by the pool, you’ll have no less of an enjoyable time. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, ‘adopt the pace of Nature: her secret is patience.’

We generally recommend a minimum stay of 3 nights to fully experience what Samara has to offer. For advice on planning your stay, get in touch with us here.
