Kariega Game Reserve will be temporarily closed from Thursday, 26 March until Tuesday, 30 June 2020. We are open for bookings or arrivals from 1 July 2020.

We continue to extend our thoughts and utmost support to everyone around the world. Please stay healthy and safe.

During closure we will retain a skeleton staff compliment to ensure maintenance of all the lodges and the reserve. We are implementing support and feeding programs for all our staff. Our reservation and admin teams will remain open during this period for any assistance regarding cancellations, postponements and bookings.

During this time of crisis and uncertainty, Kariega understands the importance of collaboration. We are committed to keeping keeping our guests and partners updated and to working with you to ensure we are as flexible as we can be.

We wish to thank you all for your understanding and we extend our warm wishes and heartfelt appreciation, as this unprecedented COVID-19 situation evolves. Stay safe, take care and we look forward to welcoming guests from 1 July 2020.
