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.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I would like to know how we do tours if staying just outside Addo. Would like to do an elephant tour and a tooth and claw safari. Our children will be 3 and a half and one and a half. Would they be able/allowed to do the tours? What is the cost? Thank you. Barbara Camp
