Kariega Game Reserve Settlers Drift


swirl with line


Located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega wilderness, Settlers Drift offers a unique tented safari combined with 5-star luxury.  Gazing down from the deck overlooking the Bushman’s river drift, it feels as if time has stood still since the last feet to have touched this remote valley were those of the 1820 Settlers as they guided their wagons across the river.  The luxuriously appointed and perfectly positioned tented lodge delivers the ultimate guest experience.
