On 1 December we welcomed our first guests to our brand new Settlers Drift Lodge.
Kariega Game Reserve is excited to be hosting its first Art on Safari from 28 August to 1 September 2015. The event is organised by Africa Geograhic and lead by artist Alison Nicholls
With less than a month until opening, the construction of our new 5-star luxury tented safari lodge, Settlers Drift, is on track! The building of the nine super-spacious tented suites, main lodge area and facilities including a pool, restaurant, bar, wine cellar, boma, decks, library and curio shop are all going well.
We are proud to announce that Kariega was recently awarded the 2014 Frontier Award for Excellence in Nature Guiding in the Eastern Cape. This accolade recognizes that the Kariega guiding team has the highest average guiding qualifications compared to all other Eastern Cape private game reserves.
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.
