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.
Located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega wilderness, Settlers Drift offers a unique tented safari combined with 5-star luxury. The lodge consists of 9 spacious tented suites, each with stunning views and secluded viewing decks. Gazing down from the decks overlooking the Bushman’s River, it feels as if time has stood still since the last feet to have touched this remote valley were those of the 1820 Settlers as they guided their wagons across the river. The luxuriously appointed and perfectly positioned tented lodge delivers the ultimate guest experience.
