Situated in the malaria-free Shamwari Private Game Reserve, Bayethe Tented Lodge offers the ultimate in luxury accommodation in this award-winning private reserve. The region is a natural extension of the famous Garden Route and is home to five of South Africa's seven habitat biomes which makes for an extraordinarily diverse range of plants and animals, a list that includes the Big 5.

Head out on day and night game drives with your personal ranger and learn about the area's intricate ecosystems. In between game drives, simply sit back and relax in the lounge or on the viewing deck and watch animals at the nearby waterhole. Alternatively, book a rejuvenating beauty treatment or massage at the Bayethe Bush Spa.

Superior Tent

Each of Bayethe Tented Lodge's 12 tents is situated along the bed of the river, hidden under shady trees to allow ample privacy and unsurpassed comforts. Each tent is air-conditioned and features a fireplace, an en suite bathroom, private plunge pool and viewing deck.

Three of the tents have indoor showers.
All of the tents have king-sized beds that can be converted into twins.


Warm up by the fire after an exciting day of game viewing in the lodge's double-volume lounge before heading for the viewing deck to watch animals as they come to the waterhole for a drink.

You can also enjoy a rejuvenating spa treatment either at the Bayethe Bush Spa and cool off from the midday heat with a dip in your private plunge pool or at the lodge's communal pool.
Wi-Fi is available throughout the camp.


Meals featuring both local and international flavours can be enjoyed in Bayethe's indoor dining area, outdoors on the viewing deck, or around the fire in the open-air boma.
