Kariega Game Reserve is a family-owned and operated BIG 5 Safari located in South Africa’s malaria free Eastern Cape. The reserve is situated along the Garden Route making it the perfect South African safari destination to compliment a Cape Town visit and a trip along the country’s beautiful coast.
The Malaria free Reserve incorporates 10,000 hectares of pristine African wilderness, as well as two abundant rivers – the Kariega and the Bushmans rivers. The reserve accommodates 5 Safari lodges. You will have a chance to view the Big 5 – lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard – as well as multitudes of other South African wildlife from the comfort of an open game drive vehicle.
Located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega wilderness, Settlers Drift offers a unique tented safari combined with 5-star luxury. The lodge consists of 9 spacious tented suites, each with stunning views and secluded viewing decks. Gazing down from the decks overlooking the Bushman’s River, it feels as if time has stood still since the last feet to have touched this remote valley were those of the 1820 Settlers as they guided their wagons across the river. The luxuriously appointed and perfectly positioned tented lodge delivers the ultimate guest experience.
