At Kariega, everything revolves around their twice-daily safari drives, the close-up encounters with African wildlife are the centre of your unforgettable safari holiday. With an experienced game ranger who will drive you out on safari every morning and afternoon/evening in an open game-drive vehicle, traversing the valleys, grassy plains and African bushveld to bring you close to the Big 5 and other game roaming freely in their natural habitat. If you are fortunate, you may witness the lion hunting or feeding, or even the heart-warming social interactions of an elephant herd.

Kariega Game Reserve is the perfect setting for your exciting safari holiday, with abundant game and spectacular viewing. Apart from lion and elephant, the game reserve is home to the other three members of the Big 5 - rhino, buffalo and leopard. Other species abound such as hippo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, eland, kudu, waterbuck and a variety of other antelope, as well as a myriad of bird species including the nesting crowned eagle, martial and fish eagles.

The game reserve is bordered in the east and west by the vast and dramatic Kariega and Bushman’s River valleys. On your safari drives, you will explore many different habitats highlighting five different ecosystems - valley bushveld, savannah grasslands, fynbos, riverine forests and acacia woodland. The awe-inspiring African landscape will captivate your senses and the trees, grasses and plants of the Eastern Cape will divulge their secrets. Sometimes it is the hidden secrets of the bush which are most treasured as memories of as part of your safari holiday, the amazing intricacy of a spider's web or the monumental work of a dung beetle. There is never a dull moment on their safari drives; you never know what African bush experience awaits around the next corner!
