We stayed for 3 nights and 4 days at Ukhozi Lodge, just long enough to enjoy the full experience. Would highly recommend, the accommodation is very private, meals were delicious with a lovely variety, early morning and afternoon safari trips and animals sightings were incredible. Real up close and personal experience with the animals.

So happy my first bush holiday was spent at Kariega Game Reserve. We experienced some amazing game viewings! The staff were waiting for us on arrival after every drive with a warm cloth and beverage. Our beds were made every morning and every evening. The décor in the Ukhozi lodge was absolutely beautiful! They had fires burning every morning and evening for warmth. A variety of wines and beverages to choose from. The food menu was incredible and changed every day. The boma experience, on our last night, was the perfect ending to a wonderful trip. Great overall experience and would recommend it to anyone!!

We stayed at Ukhozi Lodge. We went on a few drives and on every drive, we had super sightings that was missing on the previous drive. The Guides sure know a lot about the behaviour of the animals, and Nick made sure we saw 4 of the big 5.. and more. We will definitely recommend Kariega as this is exactly what we were looking for in a Safari experience! Well Done Team !!

The suites at Ukhozi lodge are large and well equipped, includes individual plunge pools. Our first game drive was beyond expectation with 4 of the big 5 spotted in less than three hours. We have never seen so many rhinos and almost all had calves. Saw a lion pride feasting on an eland , included 4 Cubs .only one elephant on that drive but the next day we drove into a huge herd of Ellie’s with young. Saw lots of buffalo too. Only the elusive leopard wasn’t spotted. Also hordes of hippo and giraffe , not to mention various antelope. We have never had such a successful game trip. Our guide Zolani was also exceptional
