Kariega River Lodge, Eastern Cape Game Area

Excellent - ££££


The Kariega River Lodge in the Eastern Cape Area sits right on the banks of the Bushmans River, which is ideal for those looking for an element of peace and quiet. It’s the perfect spot for exploring the natural surroundings and experiencing a host of outdoor activities. The lodge offers a cosy home-from-home feel to ensure your stay is comfortable and welcoming, and is conveniently located just 1 hour and 15 mins from the airport.

If you’d like to try your hand at some local activities, you can try fishing or crabbing; join a cruise where you’ll travel to one of the local beaches; or, even take a ride on a canoe along the river. Game drives leave twice daily and there is also the opportunity to participate in guided bush walks.

There are only ten thatched suites at this lodge; all are designed with luxury decor and interiors, with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning.


This lodge is both small-scale and laid-back. Each room has a private deck for you to sit and enjoy wildlife and you can also request spa treatments in the comfort of your very own suite. The lodge also has its own restaurant where you can enjoy a range of delightful traditional dishes.

There is a swimming pool, library and deck in the main communal area where you take in the spectacular views of the Bushmans River. Free Wi-Fi can be accessed from the main lodge and there is also a curio shop on site.
