  1. South Africa
  2. Cape Town & the Garden Route

In the middle of the rural, malaria-free, and untouched part of the Kariega Game Reserve lies Settlers Drift, a 5-star luxury tent lodge. The proximity to Port Elizabeth is ideal for visiting Cape Town and for a trip to the famous South African Garden Route. The small coastal village of Kenton-on-Sea is also only 10 minutes away and is a popular destination for visitors.

Here at the Eastern Cape you will find everything the nature-loving heart desires. From savannah, grassland, the bush and forest landscape to the greatest variety of flora and fauna of all South African provinces and the Big Five. No wish is left unfulfilled here. On hot days, you can cool off in the outdoor pool, which boasts magnificent views that evade description.

For all those who want to experience Africa via its cuisine, the restaurant is the perfect place. Who can claim to have dined in a restaurant with spectacular architecture in the middle of Africa's vastness? Local specialties also await you in the open-air boma under the African starry sky - a very special atmosphere that will remain in your memory forever.

At Settlers Drift you will find nine spacious suites, each of which offers an incomparably beautiful view of untouched nature from the sun terraces. Time seems to have stood still ever since the last settlers crossed this rural valley in 1820 and crossed the river with their wagons. From your terraces you can look out over Bushman's River, the very river that the settlers crossed. This luxurious and perfectly located tent accommodation is the best way to experience the magic of South Africa.

Luxury Tented Suite - approx. 110 m², with an opulent bedroom, living area, bathroom, indoor and outdoor showers, and mini bar.

The rooms also feature a hairdryer, a freestanding bathtub, air conditioning and ceiling fan, as well as a safe and coffee and tea facilities.

The Kariega Wellness Center is located at the Main Lodge and welcomes you in its two treatment rooms. Here you will find the perfect place to relax and unwind. Enjoy the peace and quiet and the pleasant surroundings while you are pampered with luxurious massages.
