Being able to capture magic moments in the bush is a great privileged handed to us in the form of smart, high resolution digital cameras. We are lucky that these days, remembering the safari experience through beautiful photographs can be as easy as 'point and shoot' for amateurs and professionals alike. Having said that...
Vicki Sibbick and her mum recently visited Kariega Game Reserve and sent us some pictures and comments after their stay.
Jacques de Klerk is a great local photographer who is also doing his Masters in Environmental Management - assessing species diversity in areas of black wattle and in cleared areas.

Kariega guest Emanuela Caligiuri recently spent two days on safari at Kariega Game Reserve South Africa, and shared with us some amazing photos of a wide range of big game animals such as giraffe, lion, elephant, black and white rhino, buffalo, antelope, zebra, hippo, tortoise and more.
The following images were taken by Katarzyna Cetkowska on her 3 day safari at Kariega Game Reserve South Africa in October 2013. Although she claims to be an amateur photographer, we think these are some of the best landscape images of Kariega that we have seen!
Kariega Game Reserve was recently the location of an Africa Geographic photographic safari, hosted by the very talented photographer and ranger Brendon Jennings. The success of this specialised five day safari has led to the scheduling of two more Africa Geographic photo safaris at Kariega - one in May 2014 and one in September 2014.
Congratulations to great ranger and photographer Brendon Jennings, who had two of his images taken at Kariega Game Reserve appear in the UK newspaper, the Daily Telegraph. The images also appeared on the Daily Mail website.
