"very much enjoyed the game drives"

2 nights Arrived 1 Mar 2015
"Very welcoming staff, and fun "tent", ( rather different from the ridge tents that I am used to) first time that I have seen his & hers washing bowls under canvass. Good game drives with a wide variety of livestock on view including a couple of lions mating ( that caused a delay in the proceedings). Location over river also made for some nice early morning viewing of the animals.

N.B. If you are taking the "short cut" from ADDO to SHAMWARI be prepared for a very rough ride, the gravel surface only extends to the rear entrance to the park- then it's ruts for 13k" See all these reviews: 17n in South Africa; 3n in Zambia

"Bayethe Tented Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 20 Feb 2014
"Our 3 night stay should have been much much longer! We honestly believe that it couldn't have been any better what with the staff, accomodation,25000 hectares,animals and plants. The tent (really?) was amazing, so comfortable and luxurious, the outdoor shower under the stars, views from the outside decking, truely wonderful. All the staff were so helpful and friendly, any request was met with a smile and if we could name them we would. One person we can name who was our ranger is Richard Kelly. This man clearly loves what he does and his enthusiasm rubbed off on all of us. His knowledge of everything in the bush, be it fauna or flora, the stars, photography and deep love of this wonderful place is exceptional. We saw the big 5 which was magnificent but he showed us so much more, memories we shall keep for the rest of our lives. Thank you Shamwari and thank you Richard . We sincerely hope to return one day." See all these reviews: 3n in South Africa
