Big Five safaris in the malaria-free Eastern Cape game reserves. The Karoo interior offers stunning scenery, wilderness safaris and frontier history.
Scenic diversity, wildlife and adventure is on offer on an Eastern Cape safari holiday. It is packed with raw beauty ranging from lush coastal forests to arid desert landscapes. The malaria free game reserves are a focal point. Whilst on the Coast, the attractive sandy beaches of the Wild Coast, the Ciskei and St Francis Bay offer some of the most unspoilt coastal scenery in South Africa. Complete with dramatic rock formations, forested dunes, and rolling pastures. Then inland lies the immensely beautiful Karoo with its majestic panoramas and frontier history.
The Eastern cape offers malaria free game-viewing and stunning scenery in equal measure. And the temperate climate and gently undulating hills is ideal for game viewing. As there are fewer trees obscuring sightings, no malaria, and better vantage points. Plus there's a choice of game lodges to suit everyone from honeymoon couples to families. And groups of friends or family parties can enjoy some of the smaller safari lodges on an exclusive basis.
The Eastern Cape is one of the prime malaria free safari areas of South Africa - alongside the Kalahari, the Waterberg and Madikw. The Addo Elephant Park with its large and relaxed elephant herds was the first. But now there are several private game reserves. All offer big five safaris orientated towards couples and families alike.
