Hotel Overview

Shamwari Game Reserve

When you stay at Bayethe, you’ll be able to enjoy game drives in Shamwari Game Reserve. Like many reserves in South Africa’s Eastern Cape, Shamwari has been working hard over 25 years to rehabilitate wildlife that was once rich in the area. And it’s now thriving. Here, you’ll find lions, rhinos, elephants, giraffes and many more cherished animals wandering the verdant plains. You’ll be able to see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, while staying in your luxury tented lodge. Plus, it’s a malaria-free zone, so you can enjoy a care-free holiday.

Sheltered by trees, you’ll have all the greenery you could want from a wild retreat, filled with stunning birdlife.

Afternoon spa time

Time to yourself in the afternoons is the perfect opportunity for a spa treatment. Bring out your glow with a relaxing facial, or release any tension with a back massage. If you really want to indulge, go for the Shamwari Signature Treatment. You’ll spend two and a half hours getting truly pampered with a full body exfoliation, wrap and massage.
