After a problem with my booking for an Addo Tour I could not have wished for a better substitute! The driver came all the way back to pick me up from the backpackers and the tour was amazing. It was a pity that the lions were not "on the loose" when we were there (and we weren't informed of this... More

Weather was not on our side when we went for a game drive with dinner but never less we saw what we came for. Kurt, our driver, did his very best to show us as much game as possible. We saw several types of antilopes, warthog, buffalo, giraffe, elefant and finally top of the bill, lions. Before we forget to... More

A pleasurable day and nite with two satisfying meals and three safari/game drives. A not large private reserve, stocked with a well chosen variety of animals. Still large enough for game to elude the guides for parts of the day. We arrived without reservations as a walk in ( against all advice ) to find the game drives available but... More

We combined the Addo elephant tour with the Schotia safari and it was an excellent day. We were picked up and returned to our B & B. Our guide knew exactly where to find the animals, whilst the included two meals were good, especially the communal evening me around the camp fire. Well worth the modest price and much more... More

We did the full day tour which took us to Addo Elephant park in the morning (see my other review) then onto Schotia after a great lunch at the barn. Our guide Niekie was terrific! He was informative, funny and so... More

This afternoon/evening guided game drive is an amazing way to see the animals in the Reserve. Our guide, Kurt, was friendly, knowledgeable but in particular so clearly passionate about his work. We saw all 7 of the Reserve's elephants, 3 literally coming up and touching our land rover which was simply amazing as they are wild and it's their choice... More
