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 view from the magnificent deck which overhangs the Bushmans River.

    We've just returned from an amazing holiday at Kariega Game Reserve (River Lodge). The staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and getting the most from our visit. Victor was our guide for the week and was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food was excellent and abundant and the service was attentive and friendly. Overall it's the best safari we've ever been on and we're already saving to come back!
