After Kariega Game Reserve lost Themba and our other unnamed bull in a poaching incident last year, Kariega is very excited to have recently introduced a new white male rhino onto this section of the game reserve in the hopes of promoting breeding on the reserve.

Another month has flown by here at Kariega Game Reserve and as always, it was filled with incredible adventures! We never prepare ourselves for a ‘normal’/’planned’ day here, because literally ANYTHING can happen!
Kariega guests were treated to a boma evening with a difference on Saturday, 18 May when musican Jason Hartman and his father played guitar and sang for them around the toasty bonfire.
Find out what the Wildlife Conservation Volunteers had to say about their stay. Thank you Malin, Agseir, Martha, Pam, Karen and Ross for sharing a little about your time with us on the Kariega Game Reserve Volunteer Project. We are so glad that you all had a good time and we hope to see you all again someday soon!
The Kariega anti-poaching unit and ranger team were excited last Saturday to be handed over Croc shoes from Croc South Africa in support of the Kariega Foundation and rhino protection on the reserve. This wonderful sponsorship was organised and co-ordinated by Red Era, a local fundraising company from Port Elizabeth.
Two picture updates on the new lion cubs that arrived at Kariega Game Reserve in about March this year, taken by ranger Brendon Jennings.
Following the release of the two male servals in October last year, Kariega Game Reserve acquired two lovely female servals, Hope and Artemis, in April of this year who were recently collared and released onto the game park. We are very excited to track their movements and development and hope that their release will bring the two males, Kelpie and Killian, out into the open.
Something a little different this week for our Photo of the Week. These lovely images were taken at Kariega Game Reserve recently by Africa Geographic blogger, Christian Boix. Although Winter is fast approaching it seems that there are still some gorgeous blooms to be found on the game park.
Undercover work by Karl Ammann in Vietnam and Laos showed that 90% of the rhino horn specimens collected was fake, leading to the conclusion that as these Asian economies grow, so too does the demand in rhino horn - so much so that the demand is more than can be met, forcing dealers to sell fake horn.
