Safari on the Cape

Please note that these are tailor made itineraries and not escorted tours.

While discovering the diverse beauty of the Cape region you can enjoy a top-class safari experience in one of the many excellent private game reserves.

If you do not want to take a flight to Kruger, but still wish to enjoy a safari experience, the Eastern Cape has several private game reserves. These enormous game reserves, covering tens of thousands of hectares of natural habitat, offer top-class game drives and sighting expeditions with numerous opportunities to seek out the Big 5. Enjoy a luxurious, malaria-free game experience with experienced rangers providing an exciting and authentic wildlife encounter. Situated in the general Port Elizabeth area, they are accessible by car from the Garden Route and are a great way to get the most out of your holiday. If one of these reserves is your last port of call we recommend taking a flight from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town or Johannesburg to connect with your return international flight home to Ireland.
