Visit the Eastern Cape Game Areas, South Africa

Easily attached to a Garden Route itinerary, the Eastern Cape has perhaps done more than any other area to put conservation on the map in South Africa.

Addo Elephant National Park and Shamwari Game Reserve

Led by the Addo Elephant National Park and Shamwari, increasing numbers of former farms are being turned over to conservation, fences are coming down and the land is being restored to its natural state. Much of the area is characterised by Karoo vegetation, a semi-arid environment of thick scrub and rolling hills, dotted with weird succulents.

The Big Five

Private Game Reserve, Eastern Cape Game AreasMost of the reserves are now home to the Big Five, and wild dog are making a welcome return as well.

The favourable location, quality accommodation, lack of malaria and good game viewing have contributed to a surge in popularity for Eastern Cape safaris.
