“Carnarvon Dale is an old colonial farm house which retains the character of colonial times. Guests, a maximum of four, stay in a separate building with two bedrooms and a sitting room all furnished in traditional style. It is comfortable and the rooms have private facilities. There is a lovely all round veranda too. Staying for two nights at this lodge meant that we could have a safari in both Amakala and Shamwari game reserves. These are two very different reserves, both well worth visiting. Our hosts and ranger were excellent. Thank you for a lovely stay.” –Valmol
“The lodge was like staying in a colonial home very clean and comfortable with an amazing bed!! Going on safari was everything and more than I had dreamed about for a long time Shamwari and amakhala game reserves both provided views of all the animals we had wanted to see roaming free and living how they should. We will never forget our trip to South Africa and our stay at Carnarvon Dale at the end of our trip was just the icing on the cake.” –Lawrenco
