Kariega Game Reserve | Kariega Private Game Reserve
10 Apr 2018 - 12 Apr 2018
Kariega Game Reserve is a malaria-free Big 5 private game reserve situated near Port Elizabeth, thus forming a natural extension to Cape Town and the Garden Route. Family owned and managed, it would be accurate to say that the gradual growth and development of the now expansive 10,000 hectare reserve is one of the most accomplished conservation projects in the Eastern Cape. Kariega's landscape spans across five different eco-systems, resulting in extremely high game carrying capacities which results in Kariega's game viewing and birding experience being unsurpassed in the Eastern Cape. Having two major rivers incorporated into the reserve (the Kariega and Bushmans rivers) adds enormous beauty and value, where guests enjoy stunning river cruises, canoeing and fishing on both rivers. Luxury accommodation is offered in 5 difference lodges (from 4 star to 5 star), namely Main Lodge & The Homestead (both 4-star), Ukhozi Lodge & River Lodge (both 4-star superior) and Settlers Drift (5-star luxury tented lodge).
