The Manor at Samara

Eastern Cape, South Africa

Those looking for a tranquil, luxury getaway amidst some of South Africa’s most beautiful landscapes will surely fall in love with The Manor at Samara. Close by to an active waterhole, you’ll spot many monkeys, buffalo and warthogs as you relax in exclusive-use lodge’s regal mess area.

Built on the site of an old homestead, this luxury lodge really hones in on the old-worldly vibe, with golden hues, traditional Karoo antiques, and interior designs created by South African designer John Jacob Zwiegelaar.

There are four suites altogether, all featuring an en-suite bathroom and a private patio with outdoor seating. We love the truly personalised experience here, including your very own chef and butler to help you truly relax and just enjoy the surroundings. You can dip in the infinity pool or chill in your king size bed knowing that everyone will be sorted for you.

Your whole family will love the privacy and seclusion offered here. With two living areas and two smaller breakaway lounging alcoves, there are plenty of spots for you to nestle down and read a book, or you can get the whole family together in the Karoo-style boma fashioned out of an old water reservoir for evening drinks. Meal times are just as lavish too – dining either on the expansive veranda or the manicured lawn is a wonderful, peaceful experience.
