Schotia offers one of the best chances to see lions in the wild. This private malaria free reserve close to the Addo Elephant National Park is probably the most densely stocked reserve in Africa, and with over 40 mammal species and approximately 2000 animals, can offer consistently good game viewing throughout the year.

Done Tooth&Claw safari with Malcolm as guide. Incredible experience, as Malcolm found every animal they have first, as our car had 10 private minutes with lion, giraffe, hippo, rhino, elephants, etc. Also included in the tour is dinner, which was tasty.

Due to so many regulations on small children in open vehicles, this is a nice option for the whole family to see 4 of the big 5. The lions are lovely specimens and there should be lion cubs in the next 2-3 months of all goes to plan. Dinner was hearty and good. Our ranger Donovan was very knowledgeable and... More

Tour is good valua for money. Schotia is a nice and well organised private game reserve. We visited this reserver in 2009 and 2010 and both time we were surprised. (unfortunately these dates are not in the dropdown menu) Not only about the animals and nature but also about food & beverage in combination with the atmosphere during diner of... More

Visited the private safari park booked by our hotel as part of the package. We had spent the morning at the Elephant park but this experience was a whole new level. We arrived at two thirty and after doing paperwork and tea and biscuits we met our guide Malcolm. We were the only three in the jeep and set off... More

This is a fantastic trip - unrestricted views of all the "big five" in one place - and you really get up close to these guys! Fantastic meal round a firepit midway. Our guide Christos was great, knowledgeable, friendly, humorous. Well worth going to. Remember to take warm clothing as the night drive can get chilly - although they do... More

I experienced Schotia recently with Blunden Coach Tours and the environment was brilliant. We saw 4 of the Big 5 and what a sight it was even though the elephant we saw was on the ADDO Elephant Park side of the fence. Guides a very proffesional and knowledgeable. Definitely recommend it to everybody, better alternative than ADDO.

We loved this trip as it gave us the opportunity to travel by open sided landcover with a guide. We had a huge elephant walk right past us. Also a pride of lions, giraffe and deer. It was all round off with a lovely meal in a beautiful hut with fire pits. Would recommend.

We had an amazing guide, Karl - he was patient and entertaining and we managed to see everything we wanted to see except for the elusive hippos.

You get a very cool little tour, get up close and personal with animals you'd have a very hard time seeings. Would definitely go back.
