The most amazing safari experience
If you are looking for a truly special experience then look no further than Kariega. We stayed in Settlers Drift as part of our honeymoon and it was perfect. From the moment you arrive you are treated amazingly well, the food and drinks were 5* and our room was superb. There is nothing like sitting on your veranda with a glass of champagne watching the wildlife pass in front of you less than 10 feet away. Our guide, JP, was a real gent and incredibly knowledgable. He really added to our experience and we were lucky enough to see all of the major game, as well as taking a trip on the riverboat and doing a walking Safari. We will definitely be returning!
Where Tranquility and Luxury meets
From our warm welcome on arrival to our hearty departure, everything in between was perfect. The Staff were wonderful and made sure our every need was met. Our Ranger Micheal did a great job taking us on unforgettable safaris every day. Settlers drift has stunning nature and an abundance of wildlife. We enjoyed the spacious luxury tents with the most amazing views. Dinner was excellent and the warm breakfasts after the early morning game drive. I can definitely recommend staying at Settlers drift to unwind, relax and have unrivaled safari experiences for the Eastern Cape
This place is heaven on earth!!!
Today we checked out of Settler's Drift with a heavy heart and still can't believe how wonderful it was to stay here. This place proves that heaven on earth really does exist. The interior of the whole course is very tasteful and indescribably beautiful. Every day the whole team makes sure that you feel very comfortable and that you are always perfectly taken care of. The food and wines are more than delicious. Kudos to our wonderful and sweet guide Josh, who stands his ground in all weather conditions and has given us some fantastic animal experiences that we will never forget. 🌧🦁🦓🐒🦌🐃🐗🐘🦏🦛🦄🌞🌬☔🌡 To endlessly happy days and always nice and satisfied guests.
Excellent Family Trip!
It was our first time coming to Kariega Game Reserve Lodge. And it was as our Dad told us. The Main Tent is perfect, the service and Staff is super friendly and nice. We had 2 great full days and 3 awesome nights! Plus we had so much luck with the weather. Because of that we saw so many animals. It was one of the greatest experiences ever. Wayne took us to the nicest spots, walked with us a little around the animals. It was all in all just perfect and great. Remember this is a tented lodge. It’s super fancy but it is still half a tent. So there is some spiders around, there will be maybe even monkeys jumping on top of the tent in the morning 😂 but it’s what makes the experience perfect and real. We loved it and we will definitely come back. Thanks again!
