We spent 2 nights in Ukjozi Lodge in January just passed. This is separate to Kariega as it is situated a fair distance away from the main lodge. It consists of individual suites/chalets and its own main lodge and pool.
The suites were amazing. Huge open plan room with the biggest bed we have ever slept in, as well as a lounge area and a massive bathroom with all the 5 star trappings you would expect. The icing on the cake was your own private veranda with plunge pool and a view of the plains where you can see the Giraffe grazing. It really is fantastic.
I have to mention the passionate, lovely Jacques for making our game drives a once in a life time experience. We saw 4 of the big five on our first drive.
You return to the lodge after each drive to be handed refreshments, hot towels, every detail of your stay is amaxing.
The food and the Boomba with African singing around the fire was memorable, sitting under the stars, drinking wine...
I can't reccommend Ukhoz Lodge highly enough. Yes-it is not cheap, but you can't put a price on this experience !
