One of the best things to do in the Eastern Cape. Highly recommended. Experience of a lifetime, guides have excellent knowledge of the animals and where to look for them when on tour.

We chose to visit Schotia Safaris Private Game Reserve because of it being malaria free, contrary to other national parks such as Kruger. We stayed in this reserve for a combination of 3 games + dinner + night in one of the Orlando Lodge. The...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We are in Port Elizabeth for one day on 17th April 2017 as part of a cruise , there is an organised trip to your safari game reserve but we wondered if it is possible to do this trip by ourselves with a private pick up and return from the ship/port and would this include the lunch as well? Thank you Joan Gogay
