"5 Star Luxury for 50th Birthday"
I stayed here 7 years ago with my daughter in the Ukhozi Lodge and wanted to do something special and romantic for my 50th last January, so I decided to take my husband along for 3 nights. We stayed in the Settlers Drift which was amazing and could not be faulted. The game drives were an incredible experience, the accommodation was luxurious and the staff could not have been better. The night before my birthday the team gave us a private dining experience in the snug which was romantic and the food to die for. On my actual birthday the whole team cam out from the kitchen singing a local birthday celebration song with a cake, which had myself and a few others in tears. Having stayed here twice, it did not disappoint and i'd go back again.
We spent four nights in a luxurious tented suite at Settlers Drift. It was an amazing experience, far better than expected! Great Safari experience, delicious meals, and an attentive and friendly staff. The lodges are spacious and with good distance between each other so you can be completely private. They are beautifully situated with a good view over many different animals. The safari trips last for four hours twice a day, going through different areas of the reserve so you should be sure to see the most of the animals. We got 4 of the Big 5 (leopard missing), as well as graceful giraffes, hippos in the river, warthogs and several antelope species. In addition, many different birds, and flowers and plants. Our fantastic ranger Vicki really has lots of knowledge of both animals and plants, and that girl can drive a car! The car can seat three couples, and although some are strangers to each other, Vicki makes us feel like a family having fun, both on safari and around the dinner table. She's just so coool - awesome! The food is also of high quality, and diverse and healthy. There will be variations in how the evening meals consumed, BBQ one evening, special attentions around a massive table another night, or gathering with other guests. And Vicki is also with us, and keep the conversation going. The days on Settlers Drift feels so relaxing, and in harmony with nature. All the staff are smiling and helpful, and do everything for us to thrive best. We all feel that we are the most important people to them. We miss all of it!
"5 Star Experience"
We stayed for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and would loved to have stayed longer. Can only repeat what has been said - beautiful and luxurious suites and lodge, fantastic food and the safaris - WOW we had four amazing game drives and our ranger Wayne was simply brilliant at this job. All the staff are very friendly and it's just such a relaxing space. We also had a massage which was lovely. Everything was just perfect. We would love to return.
"Wonderful, wonderful, Kariega"
We stayed at Settlers Drift for four nights. It was the most wonderful experience. The tented lodges are superb, with a fire you can light and a bah looking out onto the plains nearby. Everything feels so luxurious it becomes just part of this whole experience. Our ranger Louie, was superb. He was so passionate, interesting and his understanding and feel for the animals we saw made the experience amazing. Louie took us on a bush walk and we were able to get 'up close and personal' with a whole group of giraffes. We learnt about tracking and respect for the animals who were tolerating our presence. I will also not forget our early morning drives with a mid drive break and hot chocolate (with added milk on the insistence of Louie) or our evening drives with a whole range of bar drinks and nibbles to sustain us!! We had a small community of travellers (6) that made up our group and we had breakfast and evening meals with them and Louie, which added to the experience as well. One evening we had a BBQ with local dancers contributing and One evening ur small community were treated to a superb evening meal in front of the biggest log fire I have ver seen. It was such an enjoyable time. You can also eat by yourself but we really enjoyed is talking over what we had just seen on the drive. Food at the lodge was also amazing, I am a fussy eater but the chef always produced something to my liking. Morning drive normally started at 6pm so there was drinks and a cake before leaving. Brunch was provided on return from the mor big drive about 10-10.30am. In. The afternoon there was afternoon tea before going on the afternoon drive around 4pm with dinner on return about 8- 8.30pm ish. Jo and her husband work hard to ensure that each persons stay is the best it can be, and along with the staff who work incredibly hard provide an overall wonderful experience. It is so peaceful and quiet, not only can you stop and listen to the environment but you can also hear yourself think, which having left there, I realise is a privilege as well. I cannot praise the Kariega Settlers Drift enough and am thrilled we had this amazing experience. I cannot wait to go back.
We spent three fantastic days at Settlerâ€™s Drift as part of our honeymoon and we are so glad that we did. Our stay was amazing start to finish. As we entered the gates in our hire car we were met by a herd of elephants that had not been seen for several days â€“ and this was a sign of things to come! As we arrived in time for the boat, we were met at the jetty by our ranger for the next 3 days and travelled by boat to the camp - this was an excellent introduction to the reserve. We thoroughly enjoyed the game drives â€“ we saw so much at such close proximity and our ranger Wayne was enthusiastic & knowledgeable. We particularly enjoyed the bush walk one evening amongst the giraffes and other highlights were the month old rhino, the new-born baby elephant and finally finding the lionesses tucking into their zebra! Our only advice would be to wrap up warm â€“ were werenâ€™t entirely prepared for the cold but the blankets and the morning hot water bottles were very welcome, as were the warm towels that welcomed us back to the lodge after each drive! The luxury tents were absolutely fantastic â€“ huge, comfortable and very private, with a fridge stocked with a complimentary mini bar & there was a log burner for cold nights (though we did have difficulty getting the wood to burn even with the help of firelighters!!). We also enjoyed sitting on our private terrace during the afternoon watching the animals in the plain below (giraffe, zebra, antelope). Meals were tasty and were enjoyed as part of your group with your ranger. All the staff were friendly and helpful and made us very welcome throughout our stay. We also both used the spa and had a whole body massage which was a great treat during the free time between game drives. Overall a really great stay and I wouldnâ€™t hesitate to recommend Settlerâ€™s Drift to anyone looking for a fantastic safari experience combined with total luxury.
