As one of South Africa's best kept secrets, the Karoo has recently emerged as a destination in the country's less touristy areas. The name "karoo" comes from an old San word meaning "land of great thirst". This semi-arid region in the heart of South Africa covers an area the size of Germany and for centuries, has taken a special place in the hearts of many South Africans; its peculiar and at first sight almost bleak beauty earning its place in the pages of numerous South African history books and novels.
Since its inception, Samara has impressed with an admirable dedication of the preservation of nature and its fauna. Here you can enjoy the incredible landscape, be pampered by the excellent service and let your soul unwind. The Karoo Lodge is perfectly adapted to the environment and landscape and offers excellent opportunities to experience the untouched nature. The comfort of the colonial style building is enhanced by a touch of modern design and multi-faceted Africa. Not only can you enjoy your meals on the veranda, the dining room or in the breakfast room, but various charming "Bushmeals " provide an interesting and authentic experience.
Activities include game drives, cheetah tracking, an overnight stay in the most romantic star bed, bush walks and the discovery of prehistoric fossils and Bushmen paintings
