Along the famous garden route, stretching 10 000 hectares long, lies the family-owned Kariega Game Reserve. This vast wilderness is home to the Big 5. This park is home to some of the richest biodiversity in South Africa. Two rivers namely – The Kariega and Bushman’s River flow gently across the reserve. Other animals are present here besides the Big 5 and you have an opportunity to view them up close during the open game drive across the park. This is a perfect setting for taking pictures to show family back home. When vising a day is never enough because of the magnitude to be seen and experienced. An overnight stay is recommended in order to experience the dawn in the bush. Morning safaris are beyond beautiful. You are also able to go game viewing in the evenings at Kariega Game Reserve, during late evenings you might possibly witness a pack of lions hunting, a pack of female lions that is. You will be able to spot hippos leaving the cool river water for night time grazing. Staying within the car should be second nature by now; there is no need to re iterate it. If you want to take an up close picture press your zoom button on your camera. What sets the Kariega Game Reserve apart from other Game reserve is that you can take a long boat cruise along the rivers. You hardly hear of this at other safari destinations across South Africa.
