Spent two nights at the main lodge. Had amazing four drives with unbelievable Rudi - our reserve guide. Rudi made the experience so much better, he had so much knowledge and info about the bush, he took care of every little detail, and was the nicest. We saw lions, elephants, rhinos, impalas, ghanoo, zebras, girraffes and many more. The reserve is so green and powerfull, you definatly can feel the wild.
The schedule is comfortable, food was nice, and the chalet was huge but still cousy. Go to Kariega and ask for Rudi!
One little note to Kariega staff: we almost missed the first drive on 1530. Maybe you should send an email day or two before to let the guests know that first drives is on 1530 so that guests will check in on time.

Thank you so much for your great review. We are so pleased that you had a great stay at Main Lodge and an excellent safari amongst the wildlife with ranger Rudi. We have passed on your thanks to him. We have also noted your suggestion regarding earlier game drive start times and will ensure that this is included with the information sent on to guests before their stay and confirmed on check in.
Kind regards from the Kariega team.
