Local area description
This malaria free region is the closest natural Big-5 game area to Cape Town, the fastest growing conservation area in South Africa and offers the best malaria free Big-5 and general game viewing in the country. The Eastern Cape is a unique paradise. This hauntingly beautiful region is remarkably diverse ranging from African Bushveld and lush evergreen forests to rugged mountains – and incorporating miles of sun-drenched coastline dotted with pristine beaches, rivers, lagoons and coastal villages. Its real appeal is also its warmth, character and laid back lifestyle. Being both the traditional home of the Xhosa people and the historic heartland of the 1820 Settlers, a remarkable blend of history, heritage and culture has evolved which culminates in a region that people come to love.

The entire experience was handled efficiently and with such friendliness. We were fortunate to have seen all the Big 5 (except leopard) which family from Portugal so wanted to see and were thrilled. Accommodation was excellent as was the food of a very high quality. Game ranger was great and went to so much trouble to make our stay worth while. Staff were all extremely friendly and food was scrumptious Thank you Kariega!
