Superb safaris and amazing stay in the tents for two nights... you could hear the lions roaring at night and in the morning... in the jungle the lions do not sleep at night... best ranger ever! Thanks Ryan for some special game drives...

What a day. As a start: We recommend the full day schotia option. As here you will first be going to the amazing Addo Park for a 3 hour drive with, if you’re lucky, an insanely experienced guide. He or she tells you absolutely everything about all the flora and fauna. Also,

Check the local weather forecast ( around Port Elizabeth ). It is their winter, but is likely to be dry, bright and warm during the day time. However, when the sun goes down, it can get really cold. It did whilst we were there at the end of June and we were up to 5 layers of clothing on the night drive, and still cold. So, be prepared. The rangers carry heavy Poncho's on the trucks if you get too cold, and we needed them. Also, we wore mainly walking gear and found this to be perfect, strong shoes etc. Hope this helps.

No problem at all, we drove back at 10 pm. Use main road not dirt track on map!

I did the full day with evening ...which included a morning drive through Addoo Park, lunch, the afternoon and evening in Schotia Park including dinner. This came in at R2500 pp (approx £140 each). Well worth it.... The prices above were in August '17, they might be different in high season.

"Stay in the converted dairy."
"We stayed in the Orlando Rooms. This was fine."
"Did not stay over."
"I stayed in my private bungalow! It was all I could ask for. It was called the warthog!"
"The tents may not be for everyone but we loved it, there is no electricity, just lamps and you have to walk down a path to the bathroom"
