Carnarvon Dale once provided lodgings for travellers whose journeys had been halted by the flooded Bushman’s River. In that same tradition of hospitality, Roger and Maryan Hart welcome guests to their 1820 Settler farmhouse, the Bottom House, and the 1907 Edwardian Top House.

Carnarvon Dale is 3 star graded but offers wildlife enthusiasts 5-star game drives in a malaria free area on our award-winning Amakhala Game Reserve and also, for guests staying 2 nights or more, on the neighbouring world famous Shamwari Game Reserve, the latter exclusively and by private arrangement and at no extra cost. We can also arrange a morning excursion to Addo National Park for a breakfast with the elephants.
We offer comfortable, owner-managed accommodation and excellent game viewing at an affordable price which, we believe, provides good value for money.

    Morning and late afternoon guided game drives in an open Land Rover are arranged to suit your personal needs. While two daily game drives will take up much of your time. Guests can also enjoy guided bush walks along the river and refreshing dips in the swimming pool. For a change of pace enjoy our bird watching and game spotting walks along the lazy Bushman’s River.
    In the evenings there are new friends to be made over cool sundowners and stories of bygone days to entertain you around a “braaivleis” fire under South African stars.
