Kariega Game Reserve is the perfect setting for exciting safari holidays, 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.
On safari drives, you will explore many different habitats highlighting five different ecosystems - valley bushveld, savannah grasslands, fynbos, riverine forests, and acacia woodland.
