It is very unusual to see an Aardvark during the day. Johanna and her party were very excited to see this shy, nocturnal and sought after animal on their recent safari.
Photo of the Week
The Halter Family from Germany recently spent some time at Kariega, and sent us these great safari shots.
Kariega has recently been visited by some renowned wildlife photographers. This month, Kariega offered it's first official photo safari to guests. With the lush bushveld of the Eastern Cape, Kariega offers a rich and unique backdrop for incredible wildlife photography.
Thanks for sharing these with us on Facebook, Marion and Nico Flemming. Marion recently sent us these great pics of her time at Kariega, and she will be entered into the Kariega Facebook Photo Competition, standing a chance to win a 2 night stay for 2 at River Lodge.
Kariega is home to approximately 280 species of birds. We were particularly excited to see a new resident this week
Aad and Yvonne van Tol visited Kariega Game Reserve to celebrate their wedding anniversary. They sent us some super pictures of their safari experience and described it as "a weekend in paradise". Thanks for sharing Aad and Yvonne, and we were glad to have had you on the reserve for this special celebration.
