Safari Specials for South Africans

South Africans are emerging from lockdown lethargy with renewed energy and a thirst to explore our beautiful country. Bucket lists and ‘one-day-we-will’ dreams have been replaced with the ‘now-now’ list! Things to be experienced NOW-NOW… not just-now… because life is for living and experiencing everything South Africa has to offer.

If going on safari is on your ‘now-now’ list, Kariega Game Reserve is thrilled to let you know that we are partially re-opening on 1 September 2020, and offering our South African friends hugely discounted safari deals between 1 September and 15 December 2020.

During this period you can enjoy a world-class safari experience while staying in one of Kariega Game Reserve's five luxury lodges for either a long weekend, from Thursdays to Sundays, or by arrangement for exclusive group bookings.

Get in touch now-now… not just now… so we can accommodate your unique needs.
