    Great experience. Accommodation very comfortable, food excellent, people really friendly and everything well planned. Game drives are excellent. Take a waterproof coat to keep out the wind and hat/scarf/gloves if you feel the cold - you will need them!

    A really great safari experience. Our ranger (Josh) was the most friendly accommodating guy and really brought it all to life, making sure we saw all the best sights and were fully informed throughout. Would totally recommend to anyone looking for a good family-friendly safari.

    We had a fantastic time - our ranger was excellent. We would thoroughly recommend Kariega. We would encourage the introduction of leopards onto the reserve (none have been spotted in over four years!). This would enhance the experience.

    Great place to stay and fantastic safari experience, very informative from an excellent Ranger (Rosie). All staff very friendly, lovely big rooms and lovely food- just a shame the plunge pool was too cold.
