Kariega Settlers Drift


Situated in a remote part of the malaria-free and family-run Kariega Game Reserve, Settlers Drift overlooks the Bushmans River from its elevated setting and offers guests a luxurious base from which to explore the reserve.  In addition to morning and afternoon game drives and guided bush walks, boat trips along the river and fishing are also possible. Alternatively, relax back at the lodge with a spa treatment or take in the views from the pool deck.  

Nestled in the bush yet with all the comforts of a modern lodge, the nine suites provide the luxuries of privacy and space with beautiful bathrooms complete with free standing baths and viewing decks looking out over the surrounding bush and river.
