We are very pleased to announce the reintroduction of elephant into a remote wilderness area of Kariega Game Reserve. A herd of 10 elephants, including the matriarch and several calves, were released into a region that has not seen elephant in over 100 years.
Guests can experience the intricacies of the herd from an arms-length away and when the time is right, as in this guest video, safari groups can view very young calves without fear of upsetting mothers, aunts and grandmothers.
While young male zebras are in the bachelor herds, their time consists mostly of playful fighting in order to prepare themselves for the challenges ahead.
Congratulations to the winners of our 2013/14 Kariega Facebook photo competition. Amatuer photographer Emanuela Caligiuri won for her perky zebras and professional photographer Grant Atkinson (Atkinson Photography and Safaris) won with his regal lion and cub photo.
Kali Sakai from Seattle shared their experience in words, images and video after their recent safari at Kariega. We are so pleased you had a great safari at Kariega.
The Kariega Conservation Volunteers assisted with the darting of two of Kariega’s lions - a definitely highlight for the month.
In this video, Kariega guest Eamonn McGee captures one of these close-up moments with a elephant bull.
A big thank you to Kariega ranger Tayla Jane McCurdy for sharing these recent pictures of Thandi.
With two rivers and prime location near the coast, Kariega game park is a hub of birdlife, offering birdwatchers a chance to view an assortment of southern Africa's most magnificent birds.
This short video was taken at Kariega Game Reserve in 2012 soon after a kill on the game park. Not for the faint hearted - it features a lion pride tucking into an early morning kill in the Eastern Cape wilderness of South Africa.
