Accommodation rating: Superior
Bayethe Tented Lodge offers the ultimate in luxury, tented accommodation. Each of the 12 superior tents are nestled along the bed of the river, camouflaged under trees allowing ample privacy and unsurpassed comforts. Each tented suite is air-conditioned and has an indoor fireplace and an en suite bathroom, with bath, outdoor shower, private plunge pool and viewing deck. The stone walled and thatch roofed main building has a large deck area overlooking a waterhole, which often attracts animals looking for water to drink. The lounge and dining areas spill out onto the deck, which is adjacent to the outside boma where traditional fireside dining under the stars takes place. Dine on first class cuisine accompanied by a specially selected wine list. Early morning and evening game viewing drives in open land rovers as well as guided nature walks and bird watching are all part of this magnificent experience. In between safari activities, you may also like to choose from a range of massage, body and beauty treatments offered at the Bayethe Bush Retreat. Guests of Shamwari are also able to see some of the rescued animals at the Born Free Foundation Animal Rescue and Education Centre, which over the years has rescued several big cats from situations where they were in serious danger. Visit the museum and educational facility, which aims to create an awareness of the way wildlife is exploited in captivity around the world.
