Samara Manor House


... is located the Cradock and Graaff-Reinet area of the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

+ large private reserve
+ stunning landscapes
+ important and pioneering conservation project
+ high quality lodge
+ tracking school
+ walking safari
+ good swimming pool
+ low visitor traffic

Situated around 35km east of Graaff-Reinet, this scenic 27,000ha game reserve is one of a number of excellent re-wildlification projects in the area.

Activities are centred on vehicle and walking safari. The reserve contains wide-lipped rhinos, giraffes, buffaloes, leopards, caracals and servals, as well as a wide range of antelopes and lesser species, but no elephants or lions.

This modern colonial style house is available for private rental for groups of up to eight guests. There are four suites and extensive public areas, all beautifully presented and with a 25m lane pool outside.

Samara Manor House is undoubtedly one of the finest non-malarial safari options and guest reviews are reliable. A really good conservation project worthy of support.

- fenced reserve
- long bumpy arrival road
- not easy to fit into trips

We look forward to a time when the reserves in this area will open up their fences to create a single larger area for wildlife.
