Location

There are two possible locations we use throughout the year. Both of which have beautiful views and amazing wildlife.  

Schotia Safaris Private Game Reserve

Schotia Safari’s Private Game Reserve is one of South Africa’s most renowned private game reserves, and is located adjacent to Addo National Park. Learn more about this jewel of the Eastern cape at the reserves website

SCHOTIA SAFARI’S – PORT ELIZABETH

Schotia Game Reserve is the oldest private game viewing reserve in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. It borders the eastern side of Addo Elephant National Park. The reserve is a malaria free reserve and is probably the most densely stocked reserve in Africa. Over 40 mammal species and approximately 2000 animals, can offer consistently good game viewing throughout the year. Schotia was the first reserve in the Cape Province to have free roaming lions and we can almost guarantee sightings of these magnificent animals on every game drive.

The reserve is owned, managed and run ‘hands on’ by the owners, the Bean family, who are now in their sixth generation and have owned the original farm, Orlando, since the early 1800’s. After nearly 25 years of experience in the safari business, Peter and his team have created a unique, relaxed and truly South African experience at Schotia.

Privately owned and with a passion for conservation, Mount Camdeboo Private Game Reserve is home to numerous endangered species that have been successfully rehabilitated and reintroduced into South Africa’s malaria-free Great Karoo.
