Incredible Safari Experiences in the malaria-free, Eastern Cape
We can brag with the amazing offers we have, for clients to add some dedicated safari time at the end of their Garden Route tour with Earthstompers. All the lodges we use, boasts excellent terrain for game viewing of the big 5 and other animals, as well as awesome lodges and service, ranging from 3 star to 5 star.
Quatermain’s 1920’s Tented Camp is the perfect accommodation type for people who don’t want walls, separating them from the nature that is all around them.This camp is owner run by Riaan Brand & his wife Julie. There are only 3 tents, with a maximum occupancy of 2 people per tent so it is super intimate and cosy. The camp is located in an area of the reserve where there are no predators, which means that the camp doesn’t need any fencing! This is great news for guests, as they have freedom to walk around in the reserve unaccompanied.
Here, you really feel like you stepped into the 1900’s; you drink coffee from a tin mug, sit around the fire sharing tales with new friends, and feel one with nature. So much so, that you feel that in a parallel universe, you could live like this forever!
Next stop, Kariega Private Game Reserve.
We had a beautiful 3 bedroom cottage at Main Lodge. Main Lodge is the largest lodge at Kariega, with 24 available cottages. Cottages are available in different sizes, some even have a small splash pool.The main lodge, where dinners are served, is fantastic. Leather couches and fires to relax at, a big swimming pool with tanning chairs and unbelievable buffet style breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The reserve is split up in 2 sections, separated by a public road. You get to visit both sides of the reserve on your two daily game drives. All lodges also offer a “boma night” which means that guests have a traditional style braai (all food prepared on the fire) if they stay for more than 1 night.
