Overview

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.

Reasonable value for money. Our guide, Zane, was very informative. Saw most of the animals you would expect, Lion, elephant, rhino, hippo, giraffe, zebra etc. Slightly disturbed that so many are in a relatively small area. The food offered following the drive was very welcome,...More

We spent 5 hours driving through Addo ourselves and it was great, but the game drive was perfect to see what we hadn’t seen driving on the „normal“ roads. Schotia takes you off the beaten track in jeeps and even if it is touristy, it...More

It is a nature reserve so there are parts that are more bumpy but not really jolting. But the drivers are very helpful and you can certainly ask them to take this into consideration.
