Top Five Safari Instagram Photos

(no comments)

We launched our 2020 Instagram Photo Competition on 1 July 2019 and we will select one entry each week until the 30 June 2020. After the closing date, all 52 top safari Instagram photos will be reviewed by our panel of judges and one overall winner will be selected. The overall winner will receive a voucher for an all-inclusive two night stay for two people at Ukhozi Lodge.

Our luxury Ukhozi Lodge is located in Kariega Private Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The lodge is uniquely built with stone, wood and glass and nestles subtly into the landscape. The lodge, 10 safari suites and beautiful rim-flow pool all offer spectacular views of the river plains and wildlife below. Kariega Game Reserve is a spectacular destination for those looking for a luxury malaria-free Big 5 safari and of course, offers lots of opportunities to take top Instagram photos!

We have included five top safari Intagram photos, each photograph has been selected as one of the weekly winners in our 2020 Instagram Photo Competition and entered as a finalist into our annual competition. The above photograph was taken by talented photographer, repeat guest and conservation volunteer Graham Harvey.

The below photograph captures a tender moment between a mother and baby giraffe and was taken by Kariega guest Michael Mortimer. Michael describes himself in his Instagram profile as a "Professor, Traveler, and Photographer."

Rachael Pereira posted this gorgeous elephant photograph on her Instagram profile and was awarded an entry into our 2020 Instagram Photo Competition. Rachel loves travel & photography. She is passionate about all animals and conservation.

The below photograph of a pensive vervet monkey was entered by Patrick Meckelburg. Patrick is now in the running to win an all-inclusive two night stay for two people at Ukhozi Lodge.

This lion photograph submitted by Isobel Lawrence has also won an entry into our 2020 Instagram Photo Competition.
