settlers drift lodge - kariega game reserve

The latest addition to the family-owned private Kariega Game Reserve, is Settlers Drift which is a unique 5-star luxury tented lodge.

This exclusive lodge is perfectly positioned, on an incline, to afford stunning views over Bushman's River and the magnificent surrounds, from all the secluded viewing decks.

The reserve spans 22,000 acres of pristine African wilderness, incorporating the picturesque Kariega and Bushmans Rivers. It offers a unique combination of awesome 'big 5' game viewing with an expansive variety of fauna, flora and birdlife in the most beautiful landscape.

Located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega wilderness.
Delicious meals are served at the delightful restaurant and you can choose your accompanying beverage from the wine cellar. You can quench your thirst in the bar, relax in a lounge or the library, where there is a satellite TV. During the heat of the day you can cool down in the swimming pool, relax on one of the spacious decks, or indulge in a spa treatment. You can sit around the boma with a beverage and discuss the day's sightings. You can even indulge in a little retail therapy at the curio shop. Activities include game drives, river cruises, walking safaris, fishing and canoeing.
Approximately 1 hour 20 minutes from Port Elizabeth airport.
