Shamwari Game Reserve, Iky's Photographic

Get caught up in seduction and luxury in the tented accommodation at Bayethe Tented Lodge, situated in Shamwari Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. Surrounded by rich vegetation and the privacy that comes with the vast African landscape, at Bayethe Lodge you will find seclusion and the warm greeting that comes with Bayethe, which means “I salute you”.

Made up of twelve beautifully appointed superior tents, the camp is hidden amongst the trees that line the banks of the picturesque Buffalo River. While boasting all the necessary luxuries and comforts, it still manages to maintain an authentic bush feel, which makes it the ideal destination for the more adventurous safari-goer.

Each of the tented suites has ample privacy under the trees and comes with its own discreet heating and air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom with bath and outside shower, private plunge pool and viewing deck and indoor fireplace from which guests can relax and keep a look out for game that comes down to the river to drink.

The beautiful thatched lodge itself has a large viewing deck and crystal clear swimming pool, as well as a large, comfortable lounge and dining room in which delicious meals are served with true African hospitality. Then, gather around the fireplace in the evenings and discuss the day’s sightings with your ranger and other guests. Bayethe Tented Lodge boasts an extensive wine list of select South African wines, as well as a selection of French champagnes.

Activities include early morning and evening game drives, which are taken in open Land Rovers specifically designed for Big Five game viewing. Guided nature walks can also be organised, as well as bird watching, which will take place with your own personal ranger. Shamwari prides itself on the expertise of its rangers and you will be amazed at the extensive animal, plant and birdlife that exist in the area.

Shamwari Private Game Reserve offers the ‘safari of a lifetime’ and at the luxurious surrounds of Bayethe TentedLodge you are guaranteed an African experience that is like no other.
