You arrive at the main lodge by boat which is a great way to start your holiday experience. The tented accommodation was beautiful with all things thought about. The staff were welcoming and could not do enough to help Mathew the chef catered for all requests.
Our time here included 4 game drives and Wayne the brilliant guide managed to find every animal even the hiding herd of elephants.
We have been on safari several times the accommodation and food were outstanding. The game drives and animals were good our only comment maybe because we have been spoilt in the past would be the fact that we saw the fences a little too often.

Room Tip: All tented lodges are identical with the most amazing views

Hi Sarah,
Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your safari experience with us and have passed on your thanks to Wayne, Matthew and the team at Settlers Drift. We also love the boat trip up the river to reach the lodge! It is always great to read reviews from those who have been on safari a number of times and rate the wildlife experience at Kariega. We totally understand your comment about the fences and are so looking forward to the developments to acquire more land so that we can get rid of them! We have been so fortunate to return such a large area back into a wilderness area but there is lots more that we plan to do. Come back and visit us again....
Kind regards from the team at Kariega.

This was our second visit to Kariega, Settlers Drift a new 5 star accommodation that truly lives up to your expectations. Set high up looking over the Bushman river and the plains the location is just perfect to see the wildlife. The tented lodges are awesome, well designed with every amenity you could want. This fully inclusive package of high quality food, game drives twice a day, excellent customer service is something you have to experience once in your life you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: All lodges are of the same high quality.
