Settlers Drift

Kariega Private Game Reserve – Eastern Cape

Tented luxury with desirable riverscapes

Kariega Game Reserve is an internationally renowned malaria-free Big-5 private game area situated near Port Elizabeth. The reserve is a natural and exciting extension to a Cape Town and Garden Route itinerary. Two beautiful rivers add extra desirability, where guests can enjoy stunning river cruises, canoeing and fishing.

Arrive by boat or vehicle to the flagship property, Settlers Drift Lodge. Located in a secluded pocket of the Kariega wilderness, gazing down over the meandering Bushman’s river. It feels as if time has stood still as the last feet to have touched this remote valley were those of the 1820 Settlers as they guided their wagons across the valley. The lodge consists of 9 spacious tented suites, each with secluded decks offering resplendent views of the dramatic landscape. End a day of epic game viewing with sophisticated drinks around the fire pit under the African sky.
