From the first time we visited Kariega we were amazed by the reserve’s extraordinary beauty and the warm hospitality of the people who run it.
We know it isn’t Kariega’s usual practice to host weddings, but they did an outstanding job and we can’t thank them enough for making our wedding day really special.
Many of our guests commented on the outstanding accommodation, breathtaking venue, attentiveness of the staff and the exceptional food.
We have fantastic memories to see us into married life - Thanks to Kariega for making this a truly unforgettable experience for all of us.
