Big Five safari territory
The Eastern Cape boasts a stunning stretch of coastline, game rich national parks and private game reserves. This is the homeland of the Xhosa-speaking nation and birthplace of Nelson Mandela.
Perhaps our most popular region for malaria free, Big Five safaris, the Eastern Cape Game Reserves offer something for all ages, from family friendly camps to remote luxury retreats ideal for honeymoon safaris and romantics.
The main areas for game viewing are Addo Elephant Park area, Grahamstown, Kenton on Sea and Cradock. There are some fantastic private reserves that include the well known and loved Shamwari to lesser known yet equally rewarding Amakhala, Kariega, Kwandwe, Pumba and Blaauwbosch. Each reserve boasts multiple accommodation options. We've listed just some of what's available below.
