Kariega Game Reserve was recently the location of an Africa Geographic photographic safari, hosted by the very talented photographer and ranger Brendon Jennings. The success of this specialised five day safari has led to the scheduling of two more Africa Geographic photo safaris at Kariega - one in May 2014 and one in September 2014.

We were pleased to hear that Kariega Game Reserve Eastern Cape recently featured in South Africa's independent newspaper, the Mail & Guardian, with a great interview with our GM, Alan Weyer.
This Wednesday the Kariega Conservation Volunteers spent the day serving at Masibulele Preschool and Ekamphumleni soup kitchen as part of a pilot township volunteer programme facilitated by the Kariega Project.
On 18 October Simon Jones, founder of the NGO Helping Rhinos, paid a visit to Thandi - a big part of his inspiration for starting a great organisation geared to rhino conservation and awareness. Simon spent six weeks in the Kariega Conservation Volunteer Programme, and recently returned to the reserve to see Thandi. He took some lovely images. Thank you Simon for sharing, and for the great work you do through Helping Rhinos.
The Kariega Foundation was recently proud to team up with local NGO, The Kariega Project in support of a local Age-in-Action campaign.
Kariega blogger and local conservationist, Bart Logie, has just released his seventh book, 'Boots in the Baviaans' to appear on shelves today, 21 October. It is the latest in a series of Eastern Cape Travel books, and like its predecessors it is a mixture of history, natural history and fascinating stories. It also records a 200km walk through the Eastern Cape's spectacular world heritage site - The Cape Floral Region.
Congratulations to great ranger and photographer Brendon Jennings, who had two of his images taken at Kariega Game Reserve appear in the UK newspaper, the Daily Telegraph. The images also appeared on the Daily Mail website.
