Over Kariega Game Reserve River Lodge
Dit 9000 hectare grote wildreservaat ligt op 90 minuten rijden van Port Elizabeth en is eigenlijk een stukje verlenging van de Tuinroute. Naast de echte 'Big Five' vindt u in dit gebied een enorme verscheidenheid aan flora en fauna. U kunt u op 'game drive', maar ook mountainbiken of kanoën op een van de rivieren. Wilt u het rustiger aan doen? Geen probleem, een riviercruise of een wandeling zijn ook mogelijk. Zelfs het strand is niet ver weg in Kenton-on-Sea. U verblijft in Kariega op basis van volpension inclusief de meeste safari-activiteiten.
Insiders tipDe intieme River Lodge ligt ver van de andere lodges en is daarmee ideaal voor een romantisch verblijf!

We stayed here for 3 nights and had 5 drives as well as joining the boat trip to Kenton on sea. We were hoping for a guided bush walk on our last day but heavy rain meant we couldn't go. The drives were fantastic, you felt safe at all times. The drivers had set distances they would stop away from the animals but if the animals were comfortable and calm they would allow them to get incredibly close to the jeep. The rangers also managed traffic very well never avoiding having multiple jeeps all crowding the same animal. The lodge itself was lovely, the rooms are relatively basic but you aren't expected to spend much time in them. It was great to try a variety of game meat at dinner which was all very flavoursome. The inclusive wine selection was incredibly extensive The lodge also has an onsite spa. The prices of which were incredibly reasonable for such a fantastic treatment in a very picturesque treatment room
Within seconds of driving through the gates, which reminded me of entering Jurassic Park, we had seen giraffe, warthogs and various antelope. A short 2 km drive from the gate to the lodge and we were met by a welcoming team with warm face towels, are luggage was taken for us and car driven away. Our room was Zebra Suite and has a river frontage. It is roomy with a large bathroom and wet room style shower. There is no TV (brilliant) and no wifi but there is wifi in the main lodge. We were immediately out on our first game drive at 15:30 and saw elephant, giraffe, numerous antelope, white rhinos, etc. Shattered by the time we finished we couldn't stop beaming! JC our ranger is superb! Over three days we saw so many birds and animals it was incredible. The hosting at the lodge is wonderful with great food and drinks. During the day the weather was pleasantly warm but early morning and evenings the temperature drops and you need jumpers and long trousers or jeans. The jeeps are provided with blankets. Absolutely amazing way to end our holiday in SA.
"I want to go back for the rest of my days, are there any jobs going?"
I can't speak for Donna, but I had the most amazing time in Kareiga Main Lodge this past September. We arrived mid morning to a warm welcome, met our guide Daniel, who took our bags to the cabin while we had breakfast. When our cabin was ready he collected us and showed us the way. We were both take aback by our cabin, especially the view. Our first trip around the reserve was that evening, his enthusiasm for his lifestyle was infectious. Watching the sunset as we had a drink chatting about random stuff felt so natural. His knowledge of the terrain and its' wildlife was extensive, but not reeled off as though he'd said them a thousand times already. His love for the Rhinos, Thandi more than most was obvious, no matter how much he tried to hide it. As our group grew not once did it come across as a chore, each new addition greeted with more than professional curteousy. I could go on and on, which is temtping. But, I really really do want to go back, it was a wrench to leave.
The staff were all amazing and couldnâ€™t do enough to help, Allen was our guide and was very friendly and knowledgeable very often going above and beyond where he could to help us get the best out of our time at the lodge. The lodge itself was very nice and there is the option of fishing, canoeing and trips to the beach in the speedboat during downtime between the game drives, all of which we took advantage of. We were very lucky with the animals and saw lots in the 3 days we spent at the reserve
We spent wonderful days in Kariega River Lodge. The facility is very well decorated and the food is amazing. We had opportunity to see a lion hunting a guinu, which was one of the most exciting moments in our trip! Absolutely fantastic! All staff really attentive, especially the ranger Gladman! Unforgettable!
