Samara Private Game Reserve’s Karoo Lodge Completes Upgrades

Samara’s Karoo Lodge, situated near Graaff-Reinet, has completed its refurbishments.

The Sibella Suites – named for the reserve’s cheetah – has been the focus of the renovations, with the rooms being made larger, furniture upgraded, a new roof installed, and the deck revamped.

The accommodation is ideal for families travelling with children or couples holidaying together – with two inter-leading suites that can sleep four guests – with added privacy afforded by the location being a five-minute walk from the main homestead. It is also ideal for newlyweds which, when coupled with a Star Bed experience, is a romantic escape.

The rooms have en-suite bathrooms with a shower; the bathrooms lead onto a shared deck overlooking a waterhole teeming with birdlife. Guests may also spot larger species like rhino, elephant and eland coming to the waterhole.

Upgrades have also been made to one of the rooms making it wheelchair-friendly, while all other suites have undergone a soft refurbishment to update the furnishings.

The malaria-free reserve offers a Big-Five safari experience, with game drives and guided walks, activities that include wilderness picnics, sleep-outs under the stars and conservation projects. A children’s programme is also available.
