kariega main lodge

Situated amidst the pristine surroundings of the glorious Kariega Private Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape region, the Kariega Main Lodge offers luxurious accommodation and unsurpassed game viewing opportunities. This family-owned game reserve spans almost 9 000 hectares of picturesque South African wilderness and includes the beautiful Kariega and Bushmans rivers.

Perfectly positioned only 80 minutes east of the city of Port Elizabeth, Kariega Game Reserve is a slice of tranquillity and splendour. The lodge itself offers luxury accommodation and is ideal for guests who are travelling along the Garden Route between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

Kariega Main Lodge itself offers families, honeymooners, couples and friends a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Each of the 21 log chalets has a spacious lounge and living area, as well as large private viewing decks. Some also include a private plunge pool. The lodge has been specifically designed to merge seamlessly with the surrounds and creates an environment where you can relax and enjoy nature in the lap of luxury.

Twice daily game drives generally take place in the morning and evening, although times are dependent on the season and the weather. Experienced game rangers will guide you through the sights and sounds of the African bush, providing fascinating insight into the plant, animal and bird life that you find in the area. Be thrilled by up close encounters with elephant and lion and any of the 25 other species of wild life.

Guests are also invited to take a boat cruise, which combines the peace and tranquillity of the river valley with the abundance of bird and animal life that lives in and around the waters. Alternatively you can take a canoe on a leisurely paddle down either the Kariega or the Bushman’s rivers and enjoy the blissful silence that will surround you.

Hiking trails are well marked in the predator free, eastern section of the reserve and give guests the opportunity to walk safely through the beautiful flora and fauna. Fishing enthusiasts are welcome to fish from the Bushman’s River bank or from a canoe or boat.
