Kariega Game Reserve South Africa is lucky to have two tidal estuaries that run through the reserve. The Kariega and Bushman's River attract some incredible birdlife. Whether you are an avid birder, or looking for something special on your African safari you can enjoy the Kariega river cruises, spend time on safari finding and identifying birds with a skilled ranger (on foot or in an open 4x4 safari vehicle), or take a short boat trip to the Kenton-on-Sea to see birds of the coast.
