Kariega Homestead

Kariega Homestead

Kariega Homestead is situated deep within the privately-owned Kariega Game Reserve, a stunning reserve that encompasses over 20,000 acres. Ideally located along the famous Garden Route in South Africa’s Easter Cape, the reserve encompasses both the Kariega and Bushman’s Rivers and is malaria-free. All of Africa’s “big five” are found in the area, including the elusive leopard, and both the game viewing and scenery at the reserve’s exclusive Kariega Homestead are sensational.

The Homestead itself is a private retreat, perfect for a group or family wanting to enjoy the wonders of Africa together. A dedicated ranger and chef ensure that each guest’s specific needs are attended to and that the day’s schedule caters to individual interests. Comfortably accommodating up to ten guests in its five large en-suite bedrooms, the Homestead also features a bar, swimming pool, satellite TV, fireplace, king-size beds, dining room, private outdoor boma, laundry room, children’s playroom, and more. Magnificent views from the Homestead’s remote location on the reserve make for an unforgettable stay.

Game rangers offer thrilling twice-daily game drives. Binoculars, cameras, and video recorders are a must if you want to capture the “big five” in action. The open vehicles allow guests to encounter wildlife as closely as possible. Other exciting animal sightings include hippo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland, kudu, waterbuck, and many bird species.

The region has a dramatic variety of landscapes including riverine forests, rich grassland plains, and typical African bushveld. Experienced guides introduce guests to the beauty and secrets of each area, and every safari-goer looks forward to the next surprise that Kariega Homestead has in store.

Other popular activities include river cruises, walking safaris, canoeing trips, and fishing expeditions. Nearby local attractions include golf at the Royal Port Alfred and Fish River Sun Golf Course, the sun-drenched beaches of Kenton-on-Sea, historical sightseeing in picturesque towns, and a visit to Port Elizabeth, a friendly city known for its scuba diving, shopping, and exceptional cuisine.
