Kariega Game Reserve is a malaria-free "Big-5" private game reserve set in 9,000 hectares of pristine African wilderness incorporating the picturesque Kariega and Bushman's Rivers. Just ten minutes from Kenton-on-sea and 80 minutes from Port Elizabeth, the reserve is a natural extension to a trip along South Africa's famous Garden Route.
Kariega offers a combination of "Big-5" game viewing and a variety of fauna, flora and birdlife. The landscape spans five different eco systems, offering dramatic views and vistas. The result is powerful and truly unique to Kariega.
Morning and evening game drives with experienced rangers give guests the opportunity to view game from open vehicles. Kariega is also unique in its offering of a diverse range of activities, including: safe walking close to abundant game and birdlife, river cruises, canoeing, mountain biking, a spa and gym and visits to the nearby golden beaches of Kenton-on-Sea.
