Kariega Settlers Drift is the ideal getaway for couples, singles and small groups who are looking for 5-star tented luxury and exclusivity (no children under 10).
10 000 hectares, "Big 5" and "Malaria Free", this is the Kariega Game Reserve. Located in the Eastern Cape, Kariega's landscape and topography are arguably the most beautiful of all the Eastern Cape game reserves, resulting in stunning views and vistas not forgetting the fantastic wildlife and birdlife on show.
Guests can expect to be enthralled with the sightings of lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo, leopard, hippo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, eland, kudu, wildebeest, waterbuck and a variety of antelope, as well as a myriad of bird species, including nesting fish, martial and crowned eagles.
Settlers Drift offers guests 9 spacious, air-conditioned tented suites with each suite offering an open-plan bedroom and living area with a private deck and views out onto the surrounding bushveld.
An en-suite bathroom with a free-standing bath as well as indoor and outdoor showers is encased in glass, a truly 'in nature' feeling is on offer. These are some of the best examples of what bathrooms should be like, simply amazing.
Delicious meals whether it be breakfast, lunch or dinner are served in either the main dining area or under the African stars in the Boma.
A well-stocked wine cellar is available for one to choose that perfect bottle of South African wine to accompany your evening meal.
Private meals are on offer in the wine cellar itself, alongside a roaring fire. A must for the romantics out there.
