Schotia is a private game reserve and we can take our guests as close as possible to get the best viewing of rhino, hippo, giraffe and the king of the beasts, lion! We try to show our guests as much as possible on a drive and concentrate on the popular sightings rather than ‘the birds and the bees’.
This is a four hour guided game drive in an open Land Rover with a short refreshments and toilet break at the halfway point. After an amazing experience where you will view more animals than you thought possible, enjoy a delicious dinner which is prepared over an open fire. A short, spotlit nightdrive providing the possibility of more nocturnal animals completes your experience as we return to our reception area.
