Reception very friendly, extremely beautiful and luxurious resort. Ranger well knowledged and friendly! Food was excellent, staff very friendly and obliging! Game viewing was superb and the scenery was amazing!
An excellent way to see the Big 5
It works like this: very comfortable lodge that sleeps a family (and friends). Three large and very tasty meals a day. A game vehicle and guide dedicated to your lodge, with 2 game drives a day (early morning, late afternoon). You can opt for a bird-watching river cruise too, or a bush walk, or kayaking.... there is also a spa on site (book in advance). Take time to chill on the deck or at your private pool (at most lodges). Our guide Richard was fantastic - knowledgeable about the animals and environment, flexible with times and trips to suit our group, and handy with blankets and coffee. We loved our stay! TIP: it's c-c-c-c-cold on the game drives... wear layers and a beanie/hat/scarf.
Fantastic honeymoon experience!
We had an amazing time during our three night stay and had an upgraded room with a private swimming pool on our balcony although we were unable to use it as the water was extremely cold due to it not being heated and it is winter. The staff were super friendly, great veggie options and drinks were cheap. Our guide, Nikita, was excellent and did everything she could to ensure we had a great time. Loads of baby animals which was great but sadly did not see the leopard or black rhino. Could have done with a bit more of an explanation on arrival about how arrangements for meals worked/timings as we have never been on a safari before. Pleasantly surprised at how sociable it was eating with our tour group. People should be aware that there is no shop (except for souvenirs/clothing) on site.
My time at Kareiga
views were splendid - chalets excellent - need kindle for the fire though - could the pool be heated? v spacious - main lodge was also very comfortable - could there be more information available so we could read about the animals and their story ? this could be located in the main lodge area - also if we could make a donation towards the development of Kariega
Kariega was an amazing experience the food, staff, cleanliness and safari rides were all very good. Would highly recommend that people book with them. However, if you have dietary issues you will need to constantly remind them at each meal time, hopefully this will change, the chef's were good natured and accomodating to veganism
