Kariega Game Reserve is a family-owned and operated private game reserve stretching across 10,000 hectares of different eco-systems (riverine forest, valley bushveld, savannah grassland, fynbos and acacia woodlands).

It is malaria-free and home to 25 species of game including the big 5 (lion, elephant, rhino, leopard and buffalo). Two beautiful rivers make this park completely unique.

Guests can complement their safari experience with a boat cruise down the Kariega River sighting abundant river birdlife, or take a kayak onto the river for a quiet paddle.
