    We visited the kariega on our family holiday to South Africa in 2011 and it was incredible! We stayed at the Homestead as there was 9 of us and it meant we had the whole facility to ourselves. It was in a separate section of the reserve where the lions and elephants were and it was so much nicer than the main lodge as we could hear the lions roaring just outside the fence every night! 

    We had our own pool and fully stocked bar which was lovely, the food was good although I would have preferred ordering our own rather than the chef cook in each night (I like my game meat)
