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.
Accredited as a five-star hotel by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa, Bayethe provides all the extras that make your South African safari special. You’ll have a huge tented suite to relax in, each complete with private decking and a plunge pool. Plus, there’s a free-standing bath and fireplace for cosy nights in. Sheltered by trees, you’ll have all the greenery you could want from a wild retreat, filled with stunning birdlife.
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.
All your meals are arranged around your game drives, including brunch, afternoon tea and dinner. There’s also a ‘braai’ night, for a taste of a traditional South African barbecue.
Tucked away beneath the trees, the 12 superior tents at Bayethe blend in with the wooded surroundings. You’ll be nestled away in your own suite, where a thatched roof, wooden floors and canvas walls complete the luxury safari experience. Draw up the curtains and you’ll have huge windows for spotting wildlife in the day and star constellations at night.
