The Kariega Game Reserve is located in South Africa's Eastern Cape province, at the end of the beautiful Garden Route. The Kariega and Bushmans rivers run through the reserve.

Created through one man's vision and the passion and energy of two families, Kariega has been offering guests the opportunity to be captivated by the mystery and magic of Africa since 1989. This malaria-free, family-run private game reserve encompasses nearly 10,000 hectares of pristine wilderness spanning 5 distinct ecosystems. Along the rivers lie forest, bushveld, savannah grassland, fynbos landscape, as well as an acacia woodland.

Kariega boasts an incredible diversity of wildlife. The reserve is home to more than 25 species of game including lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo, rhino, hippo, hyena, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, waterbuck, nyala and kudu antelope, warthog, as well as other species of antelope and more than 280 bird species.
