Kariega Game Reserve


Ukhozi Lodge Location Map

Kariega Game Reserve is 10,000 hectares of pristine malaria-free wilderness in the Eastern Cape, just an 80 minute drive from Port Elizabeth. The reserve is home to 2 rivers - the picturesque Kariega and Bushman's Rivers - as well as the magnificent Big 5 and multitudes of other South African safari wildlife.  The abundance of indigenous wildlife spread across this vast tract of wilderness will ensure an authentic safari experience.

Each day begins with a morning safari into the South African bush where guests will experience the dawn of a new day as the landscape comes to life with the sunrise.  During one of your morning game drives, guests at Ukhozi Lodge will also enjoy a majestic cruise down the Kariega River on the Kariega Queen. Guests can also join a guided bush walk after breakfast with a ranger, providing the opportunity to walk amongst more than 25 species of game and abundant birdlife, or take a canoe out for a leisurely paddle down the Kariega River and watch in blissful silence as the river birds and animals go about their daily business.

During evening safaris guests may be lucky enough to witness the thrill of a lion hunt, or watch as a family of hippo emerge from the water for a night of grazing. As nocturnal life begins to stir, return safely to the lodge for a hearty dinner.

Ukhozi Lodge truly captures the romance and intimacy of Africa. Superbly sculptured from stone, wood and glass, this stylish and uniquely designed lodge forms idyllic spaces and nestles subtly into the landscape. Views are spectacular and the beautiful rim-flow pool on the valley edge is simply iconic, offering guests an unequalled panoramic view of the river plains teaming with wild animals. Meandering bush paths connect 10 luxurious air-conditioned suites, each offering complete privacy with their own breath-taking vistas and private plunge pools.

Between game drives, guests can soak up the sun around Ukhozi's outdoor pool or enjoy a spa treatment. In the evenings, unwind in front of warm log fires, enjoy sumptuous cuisine or simply share experiences of the African bush with fellow guests.

T MYERS

Start TestimonialThe lodge was great. Our room was amazing!! They even upgraded us to the Ukhozi Lodge, which I think was half a star more :-) Our ranger was ok, a bit difficult to understand his English! Even a British couple thought so, but he was nice and had lots of things to tell us. The service at the lodge was impecable. We got sunny days every day, but super windy! it was a great place and perfect to start with a "light" version of Arica by going to South Africa. You guys were really great. Lots of info and I love that you have commented on Trip Advisor. I'll definetly use you again next time we travel to Africa! I've forwarded your mail to a couple who are thinking of going to Africa too. Thanks for everything!End Testimonial
