Have just spent 3 nights at Settlers Drift and the whole experience from start to finish is outstanding and executed flawlessly by a friendly and efficient team. The accommodation is beautiful, luxurious, the views are stunning and the food excellent. Our guide Louis gave us an amazing experience with too many special moments to mention but included walking alongside giraffes and sunset drinks amongst the animals. A special thanks to Jo who focuses on every detail and made my birthday an exceptional day. Canâ€™t recommend this place enough and hope to go back.
"Truly outstanding luxury safari experience"
My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon in December 2016 (the site wonâ€™t let me go back that far - itâ€™s taken me a year to get round to writing this but time to think just makes us appreciate the place even more). You are met at a jetty by your guide with a selection of drinks and then transferred by boat down the river to the lodge itself. As an introduction to the place nothing could have been better, going down the river a giraffe walked over to say hello. The game drives are top drawer. The whole team work really well to advise where the animals are but crucially also make sure they are never crowded and can be admired in their natural behavior. There is an enormous amount of respect for all of the animals, which further enhances the experience. When we visited each truck held only 6 people meaning your view was always unobstructed and you were very comfortable. Water, blankets and binoculars were all provided as well as drinks and nibbles on each game drive. We were out 3-4 hours at a time which flew by. We were incredibly lucky to see the big 5 on our first day and over the trip highlights were seeing 3 female lions hunting as a team from a few meters away (they didnâ€™t make a kill sadly but still a sight Iâ€™ll take to my grave) and a heard of elephant passing meters from our truck on 2 different occasions. As others have mentioned this is a fenced game reserve, however in our experience, being there 3 days, this didnâ€™t present an issue at all, almost to the contrary it allowed us to see a variety of animals every time we went out without hours of searching. Our guide â€“ Vicky â€“ was exceptional. Show her an animal and as well as the interesting things about it and itâ€™s species she can likely tell you which way it would vote. Iâ€™ve never met anyone with more passion, knowledge and genuine excitement for their job. The way the scheduling worked we were fortunate enough to have Vicky as ranger to ourselves for 2 days and it was easily the best part of our whole honeymoon. The food was of the highest quality. Additionally the chef came to meet us on arrival and asked if we had any allergies or requirements which were catered for at each meal for he remainder of our stay without anything more ever needing to be asked. As well as the fantastic game drives (the main reason you go) the lodge itself is also a brilliant place to stay. The dÃ©cor and ambience are first rate, you really feel a part of the countryside. The infinity pool overlooks a large plain area meaning you can watch animals in the distance while sipping any one of a number of drinks. The tented lodge in which we stayed was enormous and very well equipped, highlight for me being the shower which could convert to outdoor by sliding the glass doors away. You have a fantastic view of the reserve as almost all walls facing that way are entirely glass. One piece of advice â€“ no matter how tired, how exhausted, how ill you may be make sure you do all of your game drives. You will always see something different. I cannot recommend this place and itâ€™s fantastic team enough.
"Perfect! Great place for Safari"
Absolutely perfect!!! Very clean, nice interior. Stunning views. Very friendly staff. Great food & drinks! The Safari was an exceptional and breath-taking experience (thank you Chris!). We recommend to stay for at least 3 nights as there is so much to explore!
"Luxury 5 star safari"
If you are keen to experience safari in luxury, this is definitely the place for you. From beginning to end the service was excellent from the onsite staff. The accommodation was outstanding, plenty of room and a stunning view across the plains to watch the animals. The food offered a great range of South African specialities and was delicious. Our ranger for the trip was Louis, who was excellent, clearly enjoys his job and being with the animals. He offered fantastic insight for both animal, insects and flowers! He even catered for the party sundowner alcohol needs :)) Thank you Louis! This place is worth every penny of the costs, we thoroughly recommend to all those looking for a luxury safari experience.
"Beautiful safari experience"
Settlers Drift surpassed everything we hoped our safari experience would be. The accommodations, the staff, and, of course, the reserve and wildlife within combined to create an incredible experience. Every aspect of our stay felt meticulously planned and wonderfully executed. The rooms are private cabins and are large and beautiful, overlooking the reserve with plenty of wildlife like giraffes and antelope in plain sight. The main Settlers Drift lodge had plenty of seating both indoors and out with views of the reserve throughout and a big fireplace in the middle for cooler mornings and nights. We had the opportunity to go out on drives twice a day with a break in between to enjoy breakfast, lunch and spa/pool amenities. Each time we returned from a drive we were welcomed back by the staff with warm towels and drinks. breakfast, lunch and dinner were prepared by an on-site chef, all timed perfectly around our outdoor experiences. We were so fortunate to have Victoria (Vicky) as our guide throughout our three night stay. I can't imagine having a more passionate and engaging person to lead us through the reserve, whether in a car, on a boat, or on foot. She did a great job of of making herself flexible enough to experience everything we wanted to experience while also keeping tabs on where the action was at to ensure that we got to see all of the unique and beautiful things happening throughout the reserve. All in all, I can't recommend Settlers Drift enough, particularly as a destination for couples.
