We stayed in an Ukhozi Lodge and it was really lovely with fabulous views across the valley and a luxury to have our own pool on the deck. Food and drinks were all included and we were happy with the choices available and the quality. The reason I have marked 4 rather than 5 for my overall score was the fact that after dinner it became difficult to get more than one drink as staff seemed to make themselves scarce. Admittedly, with 5.30am starts we were quite tired and probably needed the earlier nights this resulted in but frankly, I'd like to be the judge of this rather than have it decided for me! Especially when the board was meant to be All Inclusive!
That said, the location was gorgeous, staff efficient, the drives fantastic - we saw all except those dratted elusive leopards ;-( - and our ranger, Albert, was fantastic; so knowledgable, friendly and professional, he made the trip in many ways and nothing was too much trouble.
Kenton on sea is a very small town and hardly worth a visit except for the totally stunning beach: won best in SA several times!
Kariega was our first Safari experience but I can't imagine there are many better.
