River Lodge in the Kariega Game Reserve is surely a one-of-its-kind safari destination. Basking on the banks of the Bushman’s River near Kenton-on-Sea in the Eastern Cape, this unique lodge enjoys a supreme location – because right here in this area, a Big Five game reserve meets the sea. In short, guests at River Lodge can delight in an array of scenery, from bush to beach. Every day there are boat cruises from the lodge, which ferry guests across the river to the appealing village of Kenton-on-sea and its wonderful beaches.
