Valentine’s Day is a special day to celebrate love. It reminds us of how much we love hosting honeymoon couples at Kariega. Popular options for honeymooners are the spacious suites with private plunge pools at Ukhozi Lodge, the peaceful thatched riverside suites at River Lodge and the uber-romantic privacy of the tented suites at Settlers Drift.
We are thrilled to share our latest pictures of our five star lodge. We have included comments that a recent guest posted on TripAdvisor. “The scenery and game viewing at Kariega Game Reserve simply exceed any other game reserve I've ever visited in South Africa."
