Delightful 2019 Kariega Photo Competition Entries 

We love going through all your entries on a monthly basis. Although we are part of the Kariega family, our media team doesn’t get to go out on safari drives as often as we like! Experiencing the wonders of Kariega Game Reserve through your eyes is so uplifting and keeps us close to the action and connected to this magnificent wilderness and its' extraordinary inhabitants. Thank you! The photographic competition is a definite highlight on our annual calendar.

If you have not yet entered the competition and need some inspiration, take a look at some of the latest photo entries. The vervet monkey image above was entered by Graham Harvey.
