Eastern Cape Safari Experience


Day 1:

Upon arrival in Port Elizabeth you will be transferred to the Kariega Game Reserve. This family owned, and operated, ‘Big 5’ private safari reserve is located in South Africa's Eastern Cape Province. The reserve is situated at the Eastern end of the Garden Route, which makes it the perfect South African safari destination to compliment a trip along the country’s beautiful South coast.

The malaria-free game reserve consists of 10,000 hectares of pristine African wilderness, as well as two abundant rivers (Kariega and Bushman’s Rivers). Experience close up game viewing of the ‘Big 5’ (lion, elephant, rhino, buffalo and leopard) as well as a host of other South African wildlife armed with a camera in the back of an open 4x4 safari vehicle.

After checking in you will enjoy lunch (drinks for your own account) at the Main Lodge before heading out for your first safari experience. Upon return you will have some time to freshen up and relax before dinner at the lodge.

Day 2:

Today you start anew in your search for the “Big 5”. You begin the day at around 06:00 with a cup of coffee and a snack before departing on your morning safari. You can enjoy a hearty breakfast/brunch upon your return, but you might be distracted by the surprising number of pictures you will have taken.

You then have the day to relax by the pool, have some lunch, a spa treatment, a bush-walk, canoeing or simply enjoy a siesta before lunch which is served at 14h30. You then head back out into the bush for your evening game drive which departs at approximately 16h00.

Dinner will be served on your return to camp.

Day 3:

Unfortunately, all good things must eventually come to an end. You will begin your day, like yesterday, with an early morning coffee/tea and snack before heading out on your final safari game drive. Forever hopeful of spotting the remaining members of the Big 5 you've not yet seen, or the sheer joy and excitement of seeing something completely unexpected .

After breakfast and check out you will be transferred to Port Elizabeth for your flight to Cape Town (or Johannesburg) to connect with your flight home.


In the end we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, and we will understand only what we are taught!
