Why Settlers Drift Deserves this Award

The history of Kariega Game Reserve is an inspiring one. As recently as 25 years ago this expansive, our 10,000 hectare game reserve was owned by 15 different farmers. The gradual merging of these farms and the growth and development of the greater Kariega wilderness is arguably the most accomplished conservation project in the Eastern Cape. Settlers Drift is our most recent accomplishment and it pays homage to the adage “saving the best for last.”

Starting a game reserve from scratch takes vision, passion, energy and resilience. Settlers Drift it the culmination of 25 years of this energy and passion. It is an inspiring example for fellow South Africans to start their own African story and embodies the spirit of what modern Africa can become, and that it why it is worthy of this prestigious award.

We are always grateful for the wonderful people from all over the world that visit us and we would be equally grateful for your vote. Thank you.
