Bayethe a home away from home in the wild
Loved staying in Shamwari at Beyethe! The room was high level of luxury my girlfriend and I enjoyed. The atmosphere was tranquil and friendly between the game drives. The food was very good with a nice selection on the al a carte. Our ranger Tiem, was very informative and encouraged us to ask as many questions about the wildlife as possible. The game drives we had were breathtaking and we know we will be back!
