Kariega Ukhozi Lodge is a luxury African bush lodge built around a stone homestead. After a fire, it has recently been completely rebuilt. Ukhozi, meaning ‘place of eagles’ is an apt name for the lodge. As the 10 spacious, air-conditioned luxurious suites each have dramatic bird’s eye views over the bushveld and the Kariega river below. Each of the spacious wooden chalets has its own deck with private plunge pool and bathroom with bath and shower. Other facilities include air-conditioning, heating, king-sized bed and tea/coffee facilities.

The main lodge is built around a courtyard campfire which is a great venue for drinks following an evening game drive. There’s a swimming pool to enjoy during the warmer hours of the day between game drives.
