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 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!
"Wonderful end to wonderful SA experience"
This is my last report and after so many others it is hard to better all the other superlatives used but here goes. First safari so not sure what to expect. Lovely reception very relaxed from the second we arrived and our car keys were taken from us everything was done for us. All inclusive so any drinks at any time always makes relaxation so easy. Initial disappointment that we had no river frontage was soon dispelled as you spend so little time at your room. However the room was large as was the bathroom and very private. The itinerary for the days were busy with Safari and food seemingly taking up most of the day. We were there for 3 nights so were able to get in 5 trips out with Thomas our ranger who was excellent as well as a river trip down to Kenton on sea. Wildlife on the reserve was truly amazing, and the knowledge of Thomas really gave you an understanding of the lives of the animals in the wild which you obviously don't get in a zoo or a sanctuary situation. Didn't see the leopards but that is the beauty of a safari it isn't a zoo its wild animals in a wild place so any sightings are a privilege not an expectation. The peace and tranquility of the dawn safaris were only matched by the sunsets of the evenings making it difficult to choose our favourite part. The pairings of our group were either well thought out or we were very lucky to have such a lovely group to share our experience with. The food was excellent throughout as was the setting, with the main lodge having ample space to relax, when you had time to. Make sure you do the river trip if you like your birds, and plenty to see on safari of the avian kind.
"Icing on the cake to end our fabulous South Africa Trip."
Kariega was the perfect end to our South Africa trip, it was recommended to us by a friend that had lived in South Africa who had visited many game reserves. We stayed at the Ukhozi lodge which was excellent, from our private deck area we could look out over the plains and spot lots of animals through the binoculars. Our ranger Juan was a great guy and so knowledgeable. We had two game drives a day 5.30am and 4pm and seen so many different animals which included elephants, white and black rhino, giraffes, zebra, buffalo, hippo's, various antelope, lions, lioness's, warthog, jackal, baboons, monkeys and loads of different bird species. On our last night after dinner Juan took us out on a night game drive and we managed to track the lions again this time they were out hunting and we were so lucky to witness a kill just a few metres from our jeep, it was an amazing experience. All of the staff at Kariega went out of their way to look after us, the food was really good and there was never a shortage of drinks also the pool area was really nice and we were kept entertained by the vervet monkeys whilst we relaxed on our sunbeds. After we checked out we visited Kenton-on-sea before we drove to PE airport which was beautiful and well worth a visit for a beer at the little restaurant on the beach to admire the view.
The atmosphere of this place was really laidback and chilled out, with a wonderful setting. Staff were eager to please and the food of good quality. Of course, what we found to be truly rewarding were the game drives. In two days we spotted 21, including the big 4 all in one drive and not including birds. We could not have gotten any closer to the animals and the experience was momentous. Although not comparable to real parks, The 10,000 hectares seemed more than enough and we never did the same route twice. Morover, the scenery was stunning and the rides on deeply gutted atracks with impossible inclines were an adventure on their own, much more exciting than the sedate tarred roads found in the more famous parks. A highly recommended holiday experience of a lifetime. Only drawback? Makes you a vegetarian.
We were with a party of 8 and spent two days there towards the end of February. We managed to fit in 4 game drives with an absolutely brilliant ranger Thomas. He was so knowledgable but also has a great sense of humour. We were also taken by boat to Kenton and the beach for an afternoon walk. Go for at least 2 days. Thank you for looking after us so well.
