Drive yourself to the iconic Settlers Drift: Garden Route

We all love to hear those 3 little words - Remote, untouched, luxury. Staying at the superbly located riverside 5-star luxury tented lodge - Settlers Drift in the Kariega Game Reserve. This internationally renowned malaria free 'Big 5' private game reserve is situated near Port Elizabeth, thus forming a natural extension to Cape Town and the Garden Route. It’s an easy 1.5 hours’ drive from Port Elizabeth (unless you stop for photos!). The 10,000 hectare reserve is one of the most accomplished conservation projects in the Eastern Cape with five different eco systems, two rivers and outstanding natural beauty. As a consequence the game viewing and birding experience are exceptional.
