Enjoy Big Five game-viewing on day and night drives in one of the malaria-free private game reserves of the Eastern Cape.
The Eastern Cape Game Reserves have become very popular for two reasons. They are all malaria-free. And they lie within easy driving distance of the Garden Route. Thus making it effortless to add on an Eastern Cape safari without having the hassle of airports and flying to a completely different part of South Africa.
Most Eastern Cape safari lodges are easily accessible from Port Elizabeth (Gqeberha), being only 1 to 1½ hours drive away. This accessibility is both a blessing and a curse. Some are perhaps a little too accessible so that you may not feel that you’re really in the ‘bush’. We have visited every game lodge in the Eastern Cape. With this knowledge and experience we are experts in advising on which Eastern Cape safari lodge will suit YOU.
The natural bushveld and temperate climate supports plenty of plains game and their associated predators. The game-viewing is generally very good and is mostly in open game vehicles.
Some Eastern cape lodges specialize in family safaris. They offer a shorter game drive for younger kids. And some of them have a Kids centre with special kids safari activities and even excursions. So the Eastern Cape is our number family safari destination for younger kids. Plus we mentioned its malaria-free as well.
We arrange trips to more than 100+ destinations throughout the African continent.
