We stayed in the Ukhozi Lodge in Kariega for 3 nights in August and it was the most amazing experience ever. We had 6 game drives with our ranger Louie who was very knowledgeable and very easy to get on with, which made our trips much more relaxed and enjoyable. Your ranger also joins you for breakfast and evening meals which was really nice. Staff were very friendly and helpful, lodges were spacious and clean, if only the weather had been better we would have taken advantage of the plunge pool on the deck and also the main pool. The food was really good and plenty of choice and also a really good selection of drinks. Kariega really made our honeymoon special with a added surprise during a game drive, we won't ever forget it. So thanks so much louie and all the staff. Myself and my husband could hardly speak when we were leaving Kariega as we were so sad, but also very happy to have had the opportunity to experience the safari.
