Kariega River Lodge


Nestled on the banks of the Bushman's River

Sitting right on the banks of the Bushman's river, the air-conditioned thatched suites of the homely Kariega Game Reserve River Lodge offer guests a truly intimate and immersive experience. Reflecting the tranquillity of the river beyond, the lodge is a cosy and intimate space to sit back and relax, as well as explore the wondrous natural world beyond. Its superb location makes it a great spot to head out on a canoe and there's a spa on-site for soothing treatments after long days out in the bush.

Curl up with a book from the lodge's library in one of the lounges, take a refreshing dip in the pool, or bask in the sensational views afforded by either the large deck which overhangs the river, or your own private patio.

Connecting the vast plains of the game reserve to the sea, the river on which the lodge sits makes this a truly unique experience. Try your hand at river fishing, or perhaps embark on one of the lodge's daily boat cruises and try to spot the verdant wildlife of the river as you travel through the quaint village of Kenton-on-sea and on to the picturesque beaches of the coast.
