Located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega wilderness, Settlers Drift offers a unique tented safari combined with 5-star luxury. The lodge consists of 9 spacious tented suites, each with stunning views and secluded viewing decks. Gazing down from the decks overlooking the Bushman’s River, it feels as if time has stood still since the last feet to have touched this remote valley were those of the 1820 Settlers as they guided their wagons across the river. The luxuriously appointed and perfectly positioned tented lodge delivers the ultimate guest experience.

Our three day stay here was amazing and beautiful. The staff, especially our ranger Archie, were so professional yet friendly. Archie put himself out to make sure we had to best game drives. The rooms are luxurious with everything you need. The evening meals were entertaining as the chef created a different menu each evening and presented this to you like a wonderful story. Definitely on our list to return.
