  INTRODUCTION

Schotia Safaris is the oldest private game viewing reserve in the Eastern Cape, bordering the eastern side of Addo Elephant National Park.

This malaria free reserve 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. 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
Tooth & Claw 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.

Just a short drive from Port Elizabeth, Addo or Grahamstown, don't miss the unique experience that is Schotia Safaris.

DINING
Schotia has a huge open air lapa, reputedly among the largest in South Africa. It has reed and sneezewood walls and is open to the African skies, except for the outer ring where a traditionally thatched roof covers the dining tables and bar area. Inside the lapa there are several large 'Schotia' trees and a roaring log fire. Dinner is usually a mix of safari cuisine and traditional South African cooking; the exact menu depends on what is available on the day.

EXTRAS
Guided Tours of the Reserve and Addo National Park Schotia Safari Packages Guests can self drive to Schotia Head Quarters or can be fetched from Port Elizabeth. We also offer transfers by air to Schotia from any destination in South Africa. You can arrive any time after midday. You will be met at our head quarters by our friendly staff who will help you with your luggage and checking in etc. Your ranger will then give you an idea of what you can expect during your stay at Schotia.

ROOMS
For a real 'African' feel, try one of our three themed bush lodges - one is a 'family' lodge, with two bunk-beds and a double bed, the other two are honeymoon style doubles. Set within dense subtropical thicket these rustic-brick and thatch lodges have the comforts you would expect of a top class reserve - en suite shower/bathroom with running hot and cold water, coffee/tea making facilities and a real fire to welcome you on colder evenings. What they do lack is the trappings of the modern world - satellite TV, 24 hour room service and electricity (don't worry - we can still charge cameras and batteries for you)! Lamps will be lit for you in the evening and the rooms are serviced daily. Schotia Accommodation Packages
