Bayethe Lodge | Shamwari

There are 9 rooms at Bayethe Lodge. Children are accepted.

Personal Impression

Bayethe Lodge is the most authentic place you can stay in Shamwari to get the feeling of being deep in the African bush. It is like stepping back in time. As soon as you arrive, you sense that spirit of Africa.

The main building is made of rock and thatch and is one huge complex with different seating areas leading up to the dining area. The lodge is set on the banks of the river and with the luxury tents you really do feel as if you are in the Kruger Park area.


The rooms are nine air conditioned tents with private plunge pools so please don't think this is not luxury - it is very luxurious. All very privately situated and with wonderful views over the bush. There is something special about staying in a tent in Africa and I do believe most people will really enjoy Bayethe.

Public Rooms, Spa and Dining

The main room is impressive. One big space divided up into smaller sections with the dining area at the back. I loved the feel of this area. In front of the main building is a huge deck with chairs and tables looking over the river below. Down a path and some steps you end up on a viewing deck with a bar that overlooks the river. What a special spot this is and one that really beckons at sunset (Pictured far right above.)


There is not a spa at Bayethe Lodge.
