First game reserve holiday - perfect for a family with youngish kids (11 and 8). The reserve is big enough to feel like the 'proper' bush but small enough that we saw pretty much everything we could have hoped for! The special we booked was amazing value. Food, staff, service and facilities were excellent. We had our own vehicle and field guide, Nick Swanepoel, who was fun, friendly, knowledgeable and so good with the kids. They (and we) absolutely loved it. Many thanks to all involved.
Stunning Family Safari Experience!
We had the most amazing experience at Kariega, the accommodation, game viewing and food was simply outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for the wonderful team there, we are a family of vegetarians with young children and couldn't have been looked after better, the lodge accommodates families perfectly. In particular, our two young daughters enjoyed the array of food presented to them, they have never been treated to anything so fancy before! We were very lucky to see a range of wildlife including the pride of lions, who were very busy playing and feeding! The reserve is amazing, the scenery is breath taking, it has incredible birdlife and it was great that our guide Monde could take us far and wide to experience different things. His knowledge of the reserve, flora and fauna is immense, it was a pleasure and an education to be guided by Monde! Special thanks also to the lovely team who sang and danced so beautifully during dinner! Rosie's positivity and caring nature also runs through the lodge, creating a very relaxed and bubbly environment.
Kariega Game Reserve
We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days at Ukhozi Lodge, just long enough to enjoy the full experience. Would highly recommend, the accommodation is very private, meals were delicious with a lovely variety, early morning and afternoon safari trips and animals sightings were incredible. Real up close and personal experience with the animals.
First ever bush holiday!
So happy my first bush holiday was spent at Kariega Game Reserve. We experienced some amazing game viewings! The staff were waiting for us on arrival after every drive with a warm cloth and beverage. Our beds were made every morning and every evening. The décor in the Ukhozi lodge was absolutely beautiful! They had fires burning every morning and evening for warmth. A variety of wines and beverages to choose from. The food menu was incredible and changed every day. The boma experience, on our last night, was the perfect ending to a wonderful trip. Great overall experience and would recommend it to anyone!!
An amazing stay at Uhkozi Lodge, wonderful staff, amazing food, stunning views...i cant fault anything. A wonderful experience from start to finish. I would definitely rate them ten out of ten and i would recommend this wonderful getaway to everyone. We will definitely be saving up for another visit and bring along our son next time so he can experience it all too.
