Sprawling over 23000 ha of dense, pristine valley bushveld, and hosting abundant wildlife as well as the convergence of the Great Fish River and the Kat River, Double Drift Game Reserve is the perfect wilderness retreat.
Six separate lodging sites provide everything from budget to luxury accommodation. Numerous activities such as guided game drives in a specially-built open Landcruiser, hippo walks, private braiis, warthog braiis for groups, and many others make Double Drift an experience of interesting and wholesome entertainment.
The goal of Double Drift is to conserve the environment, to provide economic stimulus to the local community, and to provide visitors with unique and ecologically sustainable wildlife experiences. We are working hard to meet all goals and your visit will contribute to the cause.
Take the time now to schedule a visit to what the Daily Dispatch of East London calls "a jewel", "an excellent value", "scenically magnificent" and "[one of] the best kept holiday secrets of the Eastern Cape." You can book a lodge and bring out the whole family or you can just come with your spouse for a romantic getaway in one of the beautiful chalets. Either way, you will be treating yourself to a few days of both adventure and relaxation and in the process you will be helping the reserve conserve the environment and help the local community.
