If you’re looking for a malaria-free safari, excellent guides, close-up wildlife experiences, river trips, guided bush walks and a beautiful coastal wilderness area at the end of the Garden Route then we highly recommend Kariega Game Reserve. The five lodges each offer something unique: family-friendly Main Lodge, romantic Ukhozi Lodge, riverine River Lodge with access to the sea by boat, private-use Homestead Lodge and the ultimately luxurious tented Settlers Drift.
Grassy plains, two sweeping river valleys, wooded hillsides and nearby sea provide the backdrop for your twice daily safari drives, all in an open vehicle with an experienced ranger unobtrusively following the animal tracks.
A fish eagle calls from above, a step buzzard flies by while you simply sit in awe trying to take in the beauty of watching playful lion cubs (or their lazy parents), huge but gentle elephants, prehistoric rhino or just or a dazzle of zebra or the ever elegant giraffe with such beautiful big eyes and endless eyelashes. I could continue this for a while…
Simply put, we never get enough of the Big 5 Kariega Game Reserve and would love for you to enjoy it too.
