On safari to Addo Elephant National Park & Schotia Game Reserve

General information

A beautiful 3 day safari near Port Elizabeth, where you will see both the large population of elephants in the Addo Elephant National Park and the lions in the Schotia Game Reserve. You will also be able to spot many more wild animals! 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 delicious dishes from the African cuisine. You are offered delicious African meals and the game drives are also included.

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.

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 the Bush Lodge is possible.

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 wild animals. 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.
