Join hands in creating awareness against rhino and elephant poaching in this global march on the 4 October 2014.
At Kariega Game Reserve we'll be hard at work sharing our rich natural heritage with our guests. We'll most likely have a braai and traditional boma evening to celebrate too.
On the 2 March 2012 the rhino poaching epidemic became a reality to us at Kariega when one cow and two rhino bulls were poached on the reserve. On World Rhino Day we celebrate Thandi, and all our rhinos, and remind ourselves how important it is to raise awareness about rhino poaching and the illegal trade in rhino horn.
The construction of our new 5-star luxury tented lodge, Settlers Drift, is going well and all is on track to open on 1 December 2014. The lodge is located in a remote part of Kariega Game Reserve with lovely views of the Bushman's River. The area is home to abundant wildlife and birds.

Kariega Game Reserve is excited to be hosting two photographic safaris in 2015 and welcome both experienced and novice photographers to join us in a guided journey through the untouched wilderness of the Eastern Cape. Only 6 spaces on each trip so book soon to ensure a spot.
