Addo Elephant National Park & Schotia Game Reserve

General information

A unique 2-day safari opportunity near Port Elizabeth to see the large population of elephants in the Addo Elephant National Park as well as the lions in the Schotia Game Reserve.

You spend the night in the Schotia Game Reserve where you will experience the true Africa feeling in the middle of the bush. Romantic fires, a beautiful starry sky, the sounds of the wild animals around you and a delicious traditional African dinner buffet. Get away from it all during your holiday in South Africa! You stay in the 3 * Orlando Lodge (Orlando room) and for an additional fee an upgrade to a Tented Camp or Bush Lodge is possible.

Addo Elephant National Park is a good place to approach the largest mammal on land, the elephant. The park offers a large population of elephants at home, but also lions, hyenas, buffalo, black rhinos, zebras and various types of antelopes can be spotted during game drives. There are also around 150 different bird species, 600 different species of plants and the endangered dung beetle in the park. Addo Elephant National Park started in 1931 with only 11 elephants, now the population has grown to more than 600 elephants. As it can get very hot in the park, you will be driven around in a comfortable minibus with air conditioning. You only ride on the official paths during this safari, this makes it difficult to see the elephants after rainfall as the giants hide in the woods.

Schotia Game Reserve is the oldest private game viewing reserve in the Eastern Cape and offers the best opportunity to see lions in the wild, but also many other wildlife. Because the park is not that big you can be sure to spot its animals.

The safari in an open 4×4 safari vehicle starts in the afternoon because at the end of the day / evening you have the best chance of seeing lions. You can also find white rhinos, elephants, zebras, giraffes, crocodiles and many types of antelopes. You leave the beaten track to approach the wildlife closer. In the evening you can enjoy a delicious traditional African dinner buffet around a campfire at the beautiful open lapa.

Both game parks are malaria free.

You check in at the main office of the Schotia park around 14:30 – 15:00. While enjoying a cup of coffee or tea you will meet your ranger and everything will be prepared to provide you with a wonderful safari. Your ranger will immediately look for giraffes, rhinos, zebras, ostriches and many antelopes with you. After a short tea / coffee / soft drink stop, the exciting part begins: the search for the lions! However, the ranger will also search for hippos and other nocturnal animals.

In the dark you will arrive at the open Lapa where the fire is burning and the drinks are waiting for you. An extensive dinner buffet (with delicious traditional South African dishes) is served, followed by dessert, coffee and tea. When you drive back to your accommodation you will of course continue to search for nocturnal animals. You spend the night with just the sounds of the African bush. (Drinks are not included).
