A natural extension to the Garden Route and only 80-minutes from Port Elizabeth, this malaria-free 'Big Five' private game reserve is set in 9,000 hectares of pristine African wilderness incorporating the picturesque Kariega and Bushmans Rivers. Kariega offers a combination of game viewing and an expansive variety of fauna, flora and birdlife in a landscape that spans across five different eco systems offering the most dramatic views and vistas. The result is very powerful and truly unique to Kariega. Apart from morning and evening game drives, guests can enjoy a variety of other activities which include safe hiking, river cruises, canoeing, mountain biking and visits to the nearby beaches of Kenton-on-Sea. River Lodge is a five-star quality lodge built on the banks of the Bushmans River and comprises ten superbly appointed spacious air-conditioned thatched suites and a stunning outdoor heated pool. The Lodge overhangs the river and enjoys spectacular views, a wonderful dining experience and cosy lounge for evening chats and after dinner drinks. Alternatively, guests can enjoy the romance and intimacy of Ukhozi Lodge, which is nestled in the bush and offers ten luxury appointed air-conditioned suites, crafted from log, each with a private plunge pool and deck offering panoramic views of the valley.
