We, a group of part time students and 2 from the staff of the Zeppelin University have had today a wonderful day at Schotia. Our special thanks go to Scott our guide, which have done an amazing job... we all could see and feel that he really loves what he is doing and his engagement is awsome. Thank you Scott.

I can everyone only tell: go to Schotia... it is great

We were 2 Couples that only joined them for an Game drive. We had a Game Warden driving us through the Private Reserve on an open Landrover. He was very knowledgable about the abundant number of different animals and plants. We saw different types of Buck, Antelope, Rhino's, Hippos, Crocodiles , Lion, snakes, Elephants, Giraffes. This was a very enjoyable experience that ended the evening at a Lapa next to fires and being served traditional South African "Potjiekos"

We had guide Ettienne and he was awesome. Super friendly and catered to our needs! His personality was a hit with the kids!!!! He was very knowledgeable and we saw every animal we wanted to see. As for the Reserve it was first class from the amenities to the wonderful dinner! After dinner Ettienne and the artist Matt broke out the guitar and play some tunes around the camp fire. It was awesome!!!

Room Tip: I stayed in my private bungalow! It was all I could ask for. It was called the warthog!

No review can ever contain of all positive aspects. It was definitely one of our highlights of our holiday. Had no expectations at all as I just booked one night in the tented camp for my wife and myself. We opted for the Tooth and Claw Safari and it was fantastic. After arrival it looked like mass-processing, but after heading out in the jeep with our guide for safari it turned out to be one of the best experiences ever. We will never forget those days with you guys. Donovan, our safari ranger, should be especially mentioned, as he was one of the nicest guys we met during our journey and he was very enthusiastic and helpful during the whole time. Safari experience was spectacular, so much to see. During the first Safari (daytime) you get shown your tent and we were positively shocked. The pictures on the website and if you do research are not coming near the reality as this is just a magical and romantic place. The area of the tented camp consists of a beautiful tent to sleep in, separate cabins for toilet, washroom and shower (each!). At night you have oil lamps which are showing you the ways to the different places of the camp - To tell it in advance, you hear lions roar the whole night – wow, we loved it, spectacular! Concerning safari experience- fantastic, you feel like at Jurassic Park. After the first safari you are heading to a very romantic place where you get a tasty dinner with open fire place. Afterwards you are heading to our personal favourite part of this overnight experience – Night Safari! Donovan drove us through the reserve at dark night and showed us all the animals (lions, hippos at the pond, etc) with a flashlight. Driving through the night and seeing nothing is a special feeling. This few hours will be never forgotten. Again – Donovan, thank you so much that we had the chance to experience all this with you. The whole group of us (8 people) has been more than happy and excited. We got distributed to our tents after the night safari and surprisingly we were sleeping well even though the lions are hanging around the tented camps. Summarising it was just breathtaking, with the highest regard from Austria,
Sylvana and Michael

Was an awesome day saw an abundance of animals incl lions and rhino. Dinner was exceptional and our guide was on top of his game. Can definitely recommend Schotia if you want to experience the whole African vibe
