As our village grows in numbers so the weight of the burden lightens and hope for the future of the rhinoceros strengthens.

Little Bits Makes a LOT

We have learned that conservation is a team sport. We can’t do it on our own. When we work together, alchemy happens – there is magic. With many individual donations we can achieve our fundraising goals. Little bits make a LOT.

Before March 2020, the Kariega Foundation's primary source of funding used to maintain the active and effective Anti-Poaching Unit (APU) was from the levy paid by Kariega Game Reserve safari guests.

Until guests are able to return, the Kariega Foundation’s core objective is to ensure that we have the funds to keep our APU fully operational so that the rhino at Kariega remain protected.

The daily operating cost of the Kariega Anti-Poaching Unit is R5,000 (US$340, €280 or £250). Our short-term focus is to raise R210,000 to cover these costs for as long as possible.

No donation is too small. Please email us on if you would like to know more.

Rhino Tears Jewellery

Rhino Tears Jewellery was created by Sarah Cobden-Ramsay after her life changing safari to Kariega Game Reserve when came across the magnificent tale of Thandi, a rare survivor of a brutal poaching attack, who has miraculously gone on the have four calves (Thembi, Colin, Mthetho and Siya). Thandi's story inspired Sarah to create the Rhino Tear in her name, in the hope that spreading her story will be the catalyst for change. All profits from the sale of this beautiful jewellery support rhino conservation globally.

The Eastern Cape is a Rhino Stronghold

South Africa is the custodian to more than three-quarters of the world’s rhinos. Over the past decade, 8,349 rhinos have been killed in South Africa alone for their horns.

In 2021, shocking rhino population statistics revealed that the world’s largest population of rhinos — found in South Africa's Kruger National Park — has diminished by nearly 70% over the past decade, mainly due to relentless and barbaric poaching.

The species urgently needs rhino protection and conservation efforts to trump poaching so that rhino populations can grow and thrive unthreatened once more. 

Kariega Game Reserve and a collection of wilderness areas in the Eastern Cape region, known as INDALO, have risen to this challenge.

Together we have become pioneers in rhino conservation through the power of collaboration and igniting community consciousness. 

We have developed a shared model of advanced anti-poaching practises and are creating a much-needed and essential stronghold for rhino in Africa. Join our village. Walk with us in our dedication to save the rhino species.
