Kariega Game Reserve River Lodge
Frontier Country | Garden Route
River Lodge, a 4-star superior, is a unique lodge built on the banks of the Bushmans River and comprises 10 superbly appointed spacious thatched suites.
Inside the Lodge, guests can find a quiet spot in one of the lounges, page through a book in the library, relax at the pool or take in the magnificent views from the deck overhanging the river. Guests can also be pampered in the beautiful Sala with a range of spa treatments. Special activities include boating, canoeing, fishing and daily boat trips to the Kenton beaches.
Kariega Game Reserve is an internationally renowned malaria-free Big-5 private game reserve situated near Port Elizabeth, thus forming a natural extension to Cape Town and the Garden Route.
Family owned and managed, it would be accurate to say that the gradual growth and development of the now expansive 10,000-hectare reserve is one of the most accomplished conservation projects in the Eastern Cape to date. Kariega’s landscape spans across five different ecosystems, resulting in the extremely high game carrying capacities which results in Kariega’s game viewing and birding experience being unsurpassed in the Eastern Cape.
Having two major rivers incorporated into the reserve (the Kariega and Bushman’s rivers) adds enormous beauty and value, where guests enjoy stunning river cruises, canoeing and fishing on both rivers.
