Kariega guest Emanuela Caligiuri recently spent two days on safari at Kariega Game Reserve South Africa, and shared with us some amazing photos of a wide range of big game animals such as giraffe, lion, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, antelope, zebra, hippo, tortoise and more.
Photo of the Week
The following images were taken by Katarzyna Cetkowska on her 3 day safari at Kariega Game Reserve South Africa in October 2013. Although she claims to be an amateur photographer, we think these are some of the best landscape images of Kariega that we have seen!
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.
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.
Thandi the rhino at Kariega Game Reserve has undergone many surgeries and treatments since her horn was hacked off in March last year. This morning, 19 months after she was poached, the Kariega team and Thandi's doctors are preparing for what we hope will be her last treatment procedure.
It is very unusual to see an Aardvark during the day. Johanna and her party were very excited to see this shy, nocturnal and sought after animal on their recent safari.
The Halter Family from Germany recently spent some time at Kariega, and sent us these great safari shots.
Kariega has recently been visited by some renowned wildlife photographers. This month, Kariega offered it's first official photo safari to guests. With the lush bushveld of the Eastern Cape, Kariega offers a rich and unique backdrop for incredible wildlife photography.
Thanks for sharing these with us on Facebook, Marion and Nico Flemming. Marion recently sent us these great pics of her time at Kariega, and she will be entered into the Kariega Facebook Photo Competition, standing a chance to win a 2 night stay for 2 at River Lodge.
Kariega is home to approximately 280 species of birds. We were particularly excited to see a new resident this week
