This was our first experience of a safari and we had a fabulous time! We were only sorry we didnâ€™t book a further night just to enjoy the facilities of the lodge and spa! Thomas was a great guide and made our experience even more special!
We really didnâ€™t know what to expect as itâ€™s our first game reserve. But it was excellent! The standard of the accommodation was really high, and staff was very helpful and very attentive. The drives were great and got really close to all the animals we saw. Amazing treat :)
"Loved this Place"
This was a fantastic end to our garden route trip in South Africa. We spent 3 nights here from 23 - 26 November and had a great time. Most of this was thanks to our guide JC who was a great companion and teacher to us. The accommodation was very good and with a very big comfortable bed. We were in lodge 5 next to the main lodge which was very handy. The day starts with a 6am safari drive for 3 hours then have breakfast on return. You can if you want get the boat to the beach at Kenton-on-sea which is lovely. You get to spend an hour there which is half an hour away. The food ia great and staff are ever so helpful. Another safari drive takes place at 4pm for 3 hours so you get a sunrise and sunset drive. These are the quickest 3 hours of the day and the best. We were delighted to get as close as we did and to see as much as we did. I loved the elephants. If I was to pick a downside to this place it's that you are with the same group of people for 6 hours in a land cruiser and you also have breakfast and dinner with these people too. This was great for the first 2 drives with 2 Swiss visitors but then we were joined by 6 Germans who were very rude and arrogant and spoiled our time. I think Kariega need to take into account that no one nationality should be so dominating. We were made to feel we were intruding on their holiday. Apart from this we had a great time thanks to JC.
Safari in South Africa has always been TOP of my bucket list and Kariega did not disappoint. We had such a wonderful experience at River Lodge and I think we really lucked out with both our Ranger (Trust) and the people in our jeep for the duration. River lodge itself is a beautiful lodge right on the river. We stayed at room 1 which was only a short 30 second walk from the front door of the lodge. You go for morning games drives (6am) and evening game drives (4pm) each lasting 3-4 hours. When you return you dine with your group from your jeep along with your ranger. Ranger Trust has a 6th sense when it comes to finding the animals and surprised us so many times! He even took us out on a night time game drive which was an amazing experience....especially when we found the hippos out of the water as well as the lions! We were glad we stayed at River Lodge over Main/Ukhozi as the park is split in 2 (can't be helped, a main road goes through it) and the lions were over the side where River Lodge is so we got to see them lots. We also saw the elephants and giraffes loads and 3 nights was just the perfect amount of time to make sure you got to see everything. If you have time, check out the spa @ River Lodge too, Caroline is super talented! Thanks so much Kariega and Ranger Trust, we'll be back! You made the end of our trip super special.
"Great location but no security"
We stayed at the River lodge for 4 nights (10th-14th Nov 18) the lodge and rooms are very nice, the food is great and the game drives are ok. BUT we were located approx 500 yds from the main lodge rooms 8,9, & 10 you reach these rooms on a golf cart alongside the river ... not a problem, but at 1am one night the people in the room (room 8) next to ours was robbed at knife point, this highlighted another problem when they called "reception" there wasn`t anyone on duty and no security so if anyone had taken ill of had a heart attack there wasn`t any assistance at all. They posted three guards in this area for the remainder of our stay but only at night so you are still vulnerable during the day (when not on a game drive) there was talk of them installing "panic" buttons in the rooms but they are useless when you have a robber with a knife. So if you have booked for the River Lodge and are put in these rooms ENSURE they have security guards at all times, the manager when asked did say that one of the rooms had been burgled previously whilst the occupants were on a game drive, lessen not learnt. The Game Drive We have done several Safaris and I must admit this was one of the most picturesque game reserve that we have been to BUT most of the land is covered by bush so it is near impossible to spot any animals, there are three areas to the reserve, only one area has lions two males and three females none of the other areas have predators so the food chain animals are far to relaxed and this is where some people would say it is too much like a"Safari Park" in England. They need to clear the dense bushes in the Valleys to produce more "plains"and introduce Cheetah`s , Leopards and Hyena`s we saw three kills that were there for days without a Hyena in sight ... thats not natural. This could be one of the best private reserves in Africa if there were more predators and areas that they could hunt, the Lions are now killing for "fun" they dont need to eat every day but they are killing and leaving the kills for days.... If it your first Safari you will see the Elephants, Lions, Rhinos, Hippos, Giraffes and all the food chain animals but you will see the same ones day after day so a two day stay would be recommended.
