Settlers Drift Luxury Tented Lodge

Kariega Game Reserve, South Africa

Nestled on South Africa’s Garden Route, the private Kariega Game Reserve’s wilderness is home to the incredible big five, colourful birdlife, and the luxurious Settlers Drift Luxury Tented Lodge. Oozing style and glamour amidst verdant rolling hills, we love this lodge’s luxurious amenities.

With huge canvas roofs and floor to ceiling glass windows, all of the nine tented suites offer the most phenomenal views of Kariega. Take in the views on your private furnished viewing deck, or relax in between game drives in your cosy living area – all hidden away amongst the trees.

We love the stylish main lodge, the exposed brick, weathered woods and contemporary décor creating a rustic yet minimalist vibe. The wine cellar is full of sumptuous wines perfect for teaming with decadent meals in the airy dining area, and the infinity swimming pool is both idyllic and refreshing on a warm day.

Being perched in a private game reserve means you can enjoy incredible guided walks through the bush, and the close by Bushman’s River is brilliant for a leisurely river cruise, passing grazing giraffe and zebra along the way.
