Kariega Ukhozi Lodge

Successfully capturing the romance and excitement of a true African safari experience, Ukhozi Lodge is situated on the pristine expanse of the private Kariega Game Reserve in South Africa’s Eastern Cape. This malaria-free, family-owned private game reserve is made up of 9 000 hectares of unspoilt African bush that spans five different eco-systems.

From forest and valleys to savannah grasslands and lush riverbanks, guests at Kariega’s Ukhozi Lodge can enjoy a diversity of wildlife and habitats within a stones throw from their accommodation. Comprising of 10 superbly-appointed, luxurious suites, each room has an en-suite bathroom and its own private deck with plunge pool.

In between game drives, guests can relax in the shade next to the outdoor swimming pool and in the evenings, unwind in front of a crackling fire while enjoying the mouth watering cuisine that is available at meal times.

There are plenty of activities for guests at Ukhozi Lodge. As the reserve is home to more than 25 species of wild life including lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, hippo, giraffe, hyena, zebra and wildebeest, you are guaranteed spectacular game viewing opportunities. The birding is excellent, with more than 280 species of bird nesting on the reserve.

Game drives happen twice daily, in the morning and late afternoon and are taken in specially designed 4×4 vehicles. Experienced game rangers will track big game and lead you on an exciting journey through to bush, on the look out for up close encounters with lion, elephant and any number of other wildlife. There is a section in the eastern part of the reserve that is predator-free and guests can hike along the well-marked tracks in complete safety and isolation.

Guests can also enjoy a truly majestic river cruise down the Kariega River on the “Kariega Queen” or take a canoe out along the Kariega or Bushmans rivers. Fishing enthusiasts are welcome to bring along their fishing gear and cast off along the riverbanks, or fish from a canoe or boat. Historical sightseeing, rounds of golf and a trip to the beach can also be organised on guests request.
