Reasons for trip


Lovely location on the river and right in the heart of the Kariega game reserve.
The hotel and grounds are perfect for the real African experience. This was an all inclusive resort so no worries about watching the pennies. Both the food and wine were excellent including the free mini bar in your room.

I did have a few encounters with Impalas and snakes walking around the grounds and even as we drove into the reserve encountered wild hogs, water buck etc.

The room itself was rustic and very large, bathroom included a walk in shower and roll top bath that was probably a prop in the film Zulu.

The staff were all very friendly and attentive and nothing was too much trouble.
The game drives were an awesome experience and managed to see just about everything on our list, up close and personal. Including lions, elephants, rhinos, giraffes, zebras, hippos etc.
