“This award-winning luxurious Private Game Reserve which offers a Big Five safari experience, is just 40 minutes from Graaff-Reinet. Samara’s amazing philanthropic relationship with Vuyani originated in 2010 through their Conservation Volunteer Programme. The volunteers visit Vuyani, helping with construction work, building vegetable gardens, and playing with the children.


Several times a year, Samara organizes environmental education day-trips to Samara for Vuyani’s children. They also fundraise for school fees and special-needs care. The highlight of the year is undoubtedly the Vuyani Safe Haven Christmas Party, held at Samara in early December. They encourage guests, volunteers and friends to donate toys, books and games, so that Vuyani’s vulnerable children might experience a Christmas of love, hope, and presents. For many of Vuyani’s children, it is their first Christmas celebration altogether.”
