Safari Specials for South Africans

South Africans have emerged 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 partially re-opened on 1 September 2020, and are now offering our South African friends hugely discounted safari deals until 31 January 2021.

During this period you can enjoy a world-class safari experience while staying in one of Kariega Game Reserve's five luxury lodges according to the reservation criteria detailed below.
