"The sunrise and sunset safaris are wonderful 10/10"
Arriving by boat is delightful. During the safaris we saw lions mating, had a walk past by a herd of elephants, a rhino taking on two lions etc. etc. The food and service are excellent. The barbeque evening with local choir entertaining us for a while was good but the choir need to introduce and have a party themselves. Our guide was excellent but I feel it would be better if he joined his group only for dinner each day (not every meal). The â€˜safari tent accommodationâ€™ was a surprise â€“ in reality itâ€™s a permanent structure but with a tent roof â€“ romantic etc. but when the wind blows it may wake you as it flaps noisily; the accommodation was well designed and I enjoyed a bath with the doors open to the elements. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again. Internet coverage is currently slow and very limited.
A huge treat hat exceeded expectations. The team work really hard to give such a personal touch that the lodge feels like your own, very indulgent home, rather than a hotel. Every tent has a lovely view, they are very spacious and comfortable. We were lucky enough to explore the reserve with two of the four guides. Wayne is head guide and hugely enthusiastic & knowledgable. Louis is also kind and helpful. We will cherish many memories of our time at Settler's Drift
I was very lucky to spend my 50th birthday here. What an amazing time I had. The accommodation was lovely - huge rooms with open bath and shower (toilet was enclosed). Very clean and had a well stocked mini bar which was free. Amazing views from the room and the main lodge. Loved having breakfast and being able to spot giraffes, zebra, ostriches and much more whilst eating. The food was excellent too - nice variation and endless alcohol on tap too although everyone was in bed early due to the early starts. Our guide Jordan was absolutely amazing and a really nice guy too. His knowledge for what he does was excellent and he was very informative. We saw lots of animals on our trips and the best one was on my birthday morning - loved the coffee stops in the morning and wine stops mid safari in the evenings. One rerun after each trip we got met by a member of staff with cool towels and a drink. Got to see all the animals I wanted and up close too - got some amazing pictures to remember forever. I had a massage and French polish while I was there in the spa - very reasonably priced and the massage was so relaxing. My French polish was very good too. The staff were all very polite and attentive and Phil and Jo were also excellent hosts as Managers. Nothing was too much trouble and we honestly didn't want to leave at the end of our stay. We met two lovely couples who were in our jeep and spent my birthday dinner with my husband and I and Jordan. I then got a chocolate cake after dinner and the staff sung happy birthday to me. I can honestly say that my time at the settlers drift was fantastic and I hope to return one day.
"A truly memorable experience"
We spent just 2 nights at Settlers' Drift at Kariega game park, but it felt like much longer as we experienced so much. This was our third safari holiday. Previously we have been to Beho Beho in the Selous,Tanzania and to nearby Shamwari, both of which were first class, so we had expectations. We were not disappointed. The accomodation really is 5 star as is the service. We arrived too late to take the boat (our fault) and I thought we might well miss the evening drive on our first day but Jo swiftly checked us in, showed us to our accomodation, offered us refreshments and waved us off on our first drive with our ranger, Wayne. We experienced so much over the 2 days we were there. I cannot describe it all but the highlights for me were walking through the reserve with giraffe and zebra close by and later being surrounded by a herd of elephants on a night safari, so close they were in touching distance of our vehicle and seeing all this by just the light of a nearly full moon. We were fortunate enough also to watch a baby white rhino with his mother, see 3 male lions devouring an early morning kill and later witness one of the same lions mating with a lioness. Some of this was luck - being in the right place at the right time - but much of it can be credited to our ranger Wayne who was absolutely first class. He had eyes like a hawk, spotting things many may have missed, plus he was extremely knowledgable, professional and very good company. I would have liked to have spent longer there to enjoy the lodge itself and all it has to offer - I hope we will have a chance to return one day. The food was excellent - my husband who has a food allergy was extremely well looked after with specially prepared cakes and bread - and the service provided by Jo and her team was first class throughout. The little touches like hot water bottles and blankets on the night safari were wonderful!!
"Unforgettable and beyond any imagination"
This is an extraordinarily beautiful game reserve. Everithing is absolutely perfect. The unforgettable stay starts at the jetty with a lovely boat ride to the lodges where extremely friendly staf welcomes you with drinks and wet towels. The lodge is luxurious, beautiful and the atmosphere is pleasantly informal. Management go out of their way to make you feel at home. The tented lodges are magnificent. Spacious and extremely comfortable. Nicely hidden away for complete privacy. Outstandingly knowledgable rangers take you on safari tours for unforgettable adventures. Wondeeful experience. There is so much to see. The food is top notch. The restaurant easily compares with the best restaurants in South Africa. For anyone who looks for a place to celebrate something special in a relaxed and exceptional environment, this is the place. It is an experience beyond your wildest dreams.
