Kariega Game Reserve is an internationally renowned malaria free ‘Big 5’ private game reserve situated near Port Elizabeth, thus forming a natural extension to Cape Town and the Garden Route. Family owned and managed, the gradual growth and development of the now expansive 10,000 hectare reserve is one of the most accomplished conservation projects in the Eastern Cape to date. Kariega’s game viewing and birding experience is exceptional, offering unforgettable game drives and a diversity of other activities in an area spanning five different eco-systems. Having two major rivers incorporated into the reserve (the Kariega and Bushmans rivers) also adds enormous beauty and value. Kariega offers guests a choice of five luxury lodges to suit all needs - Settlers Drift (new 5-star luxury tented lodge), River Lodge, Ukhozi Lodge, Main Lodge and The Homestead. 4/5 Star Lodges.
River Lodge is one-of-a-kind. 10 spacious, air conditioned and tastefully appointed thatched suites meander along the banks of the Bushman’s River, offering the most discerning of guests luxurious peace and tranquility. Inside the Lodge guests can find a quiet spot in one of the lounges, page through a book in the library, relax at the pool or take in the view from the magnificent deck which overhangs the river. Unique features include excellent river fishing and canoeing.
Nestled on the banks of the Bushman’s River, this Lodge is unique in that it connects a Big-5 game reserve to the sea. Our optional daily boat cruises ferry our guests through the quaint village of Kenton-on-sea to its picturesque and user friendly beaches.
