You couldn't wish for a more awe-inspiring African setting. Set in the heart of the majestic Karoo, Samara Private Game Reserve offers exceptional service and two exquisitely elegant lodges. Encircled by dramatic mountains and 70,000 hectares of pristine bushveld, here you will find 60,000 species of mammal (including Cape Mountain Zebra, Giraffe, Rhino, Buffalo, Antelope, Aardvark and Cheetah), untamed plains, ancient bushman paintings and fossils.
After a day spent in the open game viewer or trekking through the bush, I enjoy returning to the lap of luxury. Post pampering session at the Spa I sample some delicious Cape Karoo cuisine. Springbok loin enhanced with Wild Rosemary and Fynbos herbs hit the spot, as does my fire-side nightcap at the Boma before heading back to the colonial, country-cottage style luxury of my suite. Swathed in the softest linen and rhythmic sounds of nature, it's sweet dreams for sure!
