Shamwari Bayethe Lodge


The ultimate luxury tented safari lodge

If you are looking for the ultimate tented camp experience in the Eastern Cape then look no further. Our consultants recommend Shamwari Bayethe Tented Camp as the best in the area. The lodge itself has stone walls and a thatched roof with awesome vistas of the beautiful Eastern Cape landscape. Guests can absorb the pulse of the African bush from the viewing deck, framed by riverine trees and overlooking the river pools where you can quietly observe antelope enjoying a drink of water at twilight.

The Bayethe tented suites are luxurious and stylish and each tent is air-conditioned and heated with an en-suite bathroom, shower, private plunge pool and viewing deck. Each of the 12 tents are nestled along the bed of the river, camouflaged under trees allowing ample privacy and unsurpassed comforts.

Early morning and evening game viewing drives in open land rovers, guided nature walks, bird watching and historic tours are all part of this magnificent experience. "Bayethe Nkosi" means "I salute you great one" in Xhosa.

Bayethe Lodge is ideally located in the world renowned Shamwari Game Reserve. This 25000 hectare malaria free wilderness in the Eastern Cape has received numerous international awards, including the World's Leading Conservation Company and Game Reserve for five consecutive years. Steeped in Settler history, and dating back to the time when a multitude of game roamed wild and free, the 25 000 hectare reserve boasts the Big Five and five eco-systems, thus enabling the support of many forms of plant, animal and bird life. This is an African adventure and conservation effort coupled with responsible tourism.
