Blu-Pebbles Tours and Transfer welcomes you to the Schotia Private Game Reserve, an extraordinary South African wildlife reserve in the heart of the Eastern Cape, bordering the renowned Addo Elephant National Park. Here, embark on an unforgettable safari adventure featuring Big 5 game viewing and expertly guided safaris.
Nestled in a malaria-free environment, Schotia Safaris Private Game Reserve stands as Africa's most densely populated game reserve. With over 40 distinct mammal species and more than 2,000 individual animals, the wildlife diversity is awe-inspiring. Whether you seek diurnal or nocturnal creatures, Schotia delivers. Encounter an impressive array of wildlife, including rhinos, hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, elephants, buffalo, waterbuck, impala, sable, hartebeest, nyala, wildebeest, and lesser-known species like the yellow mongoose and spring hares. The proximity of these animals during your safari drives ensures an up-close experience.
Open-game-drive vehicles provide the perfect vantage point for capturing incredible wildlife moments. Schotia holds a unique place in history as the first Cape Province reserve to introduce free-roaming lions, and these majestic creatures are frequently seen during game drives, offering a nearly guaranteed glimpse of their regal presence.
Your Schotia experience doesn't end with wildlife encounters. The reserve features one of South Africa's largest open-air lapas with reed and sneezewood walls, creating an authentic, open-to-the-sky African atmosphere. It is complemented by a traditionally thatched roof covering the dining and bar areas. Inside the lapa, you'll find towering "Schotia" trees and a roaring log fire creating a cosy ambience.
For dinner, enjoy a delectable blend of safari-inspired cuisine and traditional South African flavours, with the menu adapting to the availability of fresh, local ingredients. It's a culinary journey that perfectly complements your safari experience.
Conveniently located a short drive from Port Elizabeth, Addo, Port Alfred, and Grahamstown, Schotia Private Game Reserve offers an opportunity to immerse yourself in the captivating world of South African wildlife within a malaria-free paradise.
