We are very pleased that Thandi's wounds seem to be healing very well after her skin graft on Monday 22 July 2013.
Claus and Iris Wollmer were with us at River Lodge this June and sent us some amazing wildlife photo's taken during their time out on safari at Kariega Game Reserve! Images include our new lion cubs, some giraffe, and the new rhino calf as well as some pics of the rangers and sundowner drinks at the game reserve. Thank you Claus and Iris for sharing these lovely shots with us and we hope to see you back on the reserve one day!
Kariega Game Reserve is excited to be launching its first photographic safari in collaboration with our great ranger and excellent photographer, Brendon Jennings. This 5 day photo safari will accommodate guests at the spectacular River Lodge and provide guests with the great opportunity of photographing in the African wilderness with a skilled wildlife photographer.

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.
Kariega Game Reserve was very lucky to recently have a wonderful wildlife sighting of the rarely seen Cape clawlass otter which was spotted and photographed on the Bushman's River, here in the Eastern Cape. It proved to be a very special sighting for the game park with a total of five otters captured on camera both in and out of the river. Usually these water-dwelling mammals are extremely elusive and when spotted, they are most often alone.
At Kariega Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape, safari guests are often lucky enough to see a herd of hippo in the river, their heads poking our of the water as they stand in the cool river. Hippo spend most of their days resting in the water, leaving only at night to feed at their preferred grassy locations...
