Kichaka Private Game Lodge

Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Samara Karoo Lodge £££££

  • South Africa
  • Safari and Wildlife Lodge

Samara Private Game Reserve covers 70,000 acres of malaria-free wilderness in South Africa’s Great Karoo. Encompassing rugged mountains, deep valleys and the vast plains of Camdeboo, it’s a stunning location. Samara was founded on clear conservation principles and with one firm ambition: to rehabilitate the Eastern Cape’s Great Karoo. The once absent cape mountain zebra now roams the plateau pastures, beautiful blue cranes soar overhead and cheetahs stalk the Camdeboo plains.
