No matter how often we see a well photographed elephant, it is hard not to be amazed each and every time. For fun facts about elephant skin, read more here...
While the battle rages against the poaching of elephant and rhino's, find out why these mega-herbivores are such valuable components of conservation.
Kariega is pleased to be the custodians of a new white rhino calf born on the reserve just a few days after World Rhino Day and a few days ahead of the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos. We are fully aware of the huge responsibility that we have to keep the calf safe and protected from the scourge of rhino poaching.
During a giraffe fight, the two males lean against each other in a struggle for power. If they are evenly matched, this pushing may be followed by blows from the neck...
We are very pleased to announce the reintroduction of another elephant herd onto the reserve. A herd of 10 elephants, including the matriarch and several calves, were once again 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.
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.
