Btw. Grahamstown & PE, Shamwari Game Reserve, Near Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape - South Africa

  • Hotel

This famous family-friendly and malaria-free reserve is an ideal safari option at the end of the Garden Route, only 50 minutes from Port Elizabeth. Explore its exciting wilderness setting on game-drives in quest of the 'Big Five' and some endangered species such as the wild dog. Dine in a cosy dining room or beneath the stars, and stay in a choice of stylish air-conditioned accommodation in authentic African surroundings. Each lodge has a central swimming/plunge pool, lounge and bar.

'By-ye-ti', the welcoming salutation you will receive on your arrival at this splendid stone walled and thatch-roofed Bayethe Lodge. Absorb the pulse of the African bush from the viewing deck, framed by riverine trees and overlooking river pools where antelope venture a twilight drink and crowned eagles glide on the darkening sky. While sitting next to the boma fire, allow its crackling, a nightjar and the distant howl of a jackal to serenade you into relaxation. Bayethe Lodge offers the ultimate in luxury, tented accommodation. 'Bayethe Nkosi'- 'I salute you great one'.
