We stayed 3 nights in Ukhozi Lodge with our children age 12 and 17. What an experience! We enjoyed every moment of our visit. I were a bit anxious that two game rides every day would be a little bit too much, but I were completely wrong. It was freezing cold and windy, but we experienced so much with our... More

I posted this on Kariega Game Reserve page as well as Ukhozi, it seems Kariega get the web traffic, plus, I spelt Ukhozi wrong in my other review (bad!), so thought I'd put it right.

Wow!! Everything you could wish for from a game park. Stunning scenery, fantastic wildlife, superb accommodation/meals and knowledgeable wardens. Ask the guide about the birdlife. You won't be disappointed.

Highlights were the lion pride, the rhino with its calf and for me the best, sitting in the land cruiser with a herd of 20-30 elephants walking right... More
