Kariega Game Reserve


Kariega Game Reserve is passionate about the care and conservation of our wildlife and natural resources. Without these we would not be here and have this amazing opportunity to share it with our wonderful guests from all over the world.

We have an active Anti-poaching Unit (APU) which are the guys on the ground doing patrols (day and night) to make sure our wildlife stay safe and out of the hands of poachers. This job is not for the faint-hearted and the unit works very long hours. To make their lives a bit easier and to also make sure they have the equipment they need to do their jobs properly please see the list below.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of January 21, 2018

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
