We stayed here for 5 days early October and had the most amazing time! We were the first cabin you came to in the main lodge which was very large, with brilliant views! Our game driver rudi we cannot say enough about him, he made the trip more than we could have imagined his knowledge of the animal,plant life and surrounding area was so extensive. The food here was amazing something for everybody and all the rest of the staff were so helpful. We were lucky enough to do a boat trip and a walk through the bush which was brilliant, only thing we didn't do was take warm enough clothes, layers are a definite must but luckily the game drives do have blankets. Cannot recommend this place enough

Excellent in terms of the game drives, when every effort is made to see the various animals. However, the food could be better and the wine selection was poor. More activities needed during the day as we felt we were left on our own with nothing offered on 2 of the days.

Hi Gillian,
Thank you for your review of your stay at Kariega Main Lodge. We are so glad that you enjoyed an excellent safari experience. We are sorry that you did not enjoy any of our other many activities during the day. These are all included in your package: a river trip on the Kariega Queen, guided game walks, relaxing at the pool, a session at the gym, using the free wifi at Main Lodge, enjoying the scenery from the Main Lodge balcony or your private balcony in your chalet, catching up on a bit of Discovery Channel on the tellie.... With the early morning starts many guests like to just relax during the middle of the day. We also offer a spa and curio shop. We have given your feedback to your ranger to ensure all this is communicated to guests. Thanks again for your feedback.
Kind regards from Kariega.

These two days at Kariega were an unforgettable event for us. Imogen was our guide for the safari tours and she did a fantastic job. Many thanks to her and all the helpful and friendly stuff of Kariega.

We were here on our Babymoon and Kariega certainly made it one we will never forget! It was an amazing experience assisted by their wonderful staff (especially our ranger Chris!) and 5 star facilities. Thank you Kariega!

This was our first trip to a game reserve & to South Africa. We couldn't have chosen better. The staff were amazing & our ranger Chellee looked after us so well, we even had a hot water bottle & blanket one chilly morning. We drove everywhere on the reserve & spied so many different animals, some so close. I would most certainly recommend Settlers Drift - don't change anything.
