This is one of the most exciting days I have ever had in my life. Blake our Ranger was really excellent. He had an amazing talent for spotting where the animals were. Today I have seen 4 Lions about 20 feet away and saw a baby elephant only two days old again only a few feet away. These were but... More

Just got back from another wonderful time at Schotia. Despite the wet weather we saw lots of game and were looked after extremely well. No wonder we always take our family and friends there when they come to South Africa. The honeymoon lodges are so comfortable after a day's game viewing. Drinks and evening meal in the Lapa are a...

A wonderful day. From start to finish we could not fault a thing. Being picked up and dropped off from our guest house was an added bonus. Chris, our tour guide for the day on both the Addo trip and the Schotia Private Game Reserve was friendly, efficient and attentive. This option is well structured with lunch, tea break and... More

We saw way more than we expected and the evening dinner was excellent. Our guide got us up close and personal with the animals and was very informative about all of them. We saw the big five and the finally of our trip included three of them together in the dark. I would highly recommend this reserve,

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
