Hello magazine named Samara one of the twelve most romantic destinations in the world and we think it is the ideal honeymoon spot for couples that want to explore wildlife and relax in tranquil natural surroundings.
Samara is three hours away from Port Elizabeth and the best time to go is during spring and autumn, while temperatures can get quite extreme during summer and winter months. It is home to many exotic animal and bird species including endangered ones such as the Cape Mountain Zebra, Cheetah and Blue Crane. You can enjoy safari, bird watching or just gazing at beautiful landscapes. There are also many other fun activities such as engaging in wildlife conservation projects and going on themed trips like the Nelson Mandela Tour or Photographic Expeditions.
The food is truly delicious and made from fresh local produce, and you can also enjoy superb wine from Samara’s cellar door. Combining pure luxury with natural beauties, accommodation is very special. You can stay at Karoo Lodge overlooking beautiful mountains or rent the gorgeous Manor House with open-air swimming pool, stylish bedrooms and comfortable lounge. Couples seeking total privacy can stay at the adorable rustic Mountain Retreat where they can completely dedicate to each other and get in touch with nature at its purest form.
