Bayethe is a tented lodge and as is often the case in Africa, being under canvass does not involve any compromise whatsoever in comfort or luxury! Your tent has beautiful hardwood floors, attractive contemporary furnishings, and huge windows in the canvas allowing you to enjoy views over the stunning setting next to a waterhole. All tents have a deck and private plunge pool as well as indoor fireplace. Your ensuite facilities are modern classics of design and if you wish, you can even take an outdoor shower. Bayethe is perfect for combining something of the romance and adventure of a traditional tented safari without forgoing any of the creature comforts you’d expect in a 5-star hotel!
Shamwari Private Game Reserve is not far off the size of the Isle of Wight, a huge area of land with the sole aim of restoring and preserving the original landscape, flora and fauna of the region. Game concentrations are excellent, and this is definitely the best place in the Eastern Cape to see the Big Five of elephant, buffalo, rhino, lion and leopard in the wild.
