Schotia Half Day
- 22h00. Afternoon / evening drive in an open Land Rover. A buffet dinner
and all drinks are complimentary. Lions are nocturnal hunters and we can
only guarantee sightings from sunset. This is the most popular drive at
Schotia and we guide up to a max. of 100 guests per day during summer
months. Most of our time is spent searching for lions on this drive and
therefor we can not promise to find all of the other species. It is for
this reason that we are starting a Schotia Full Day drive from the first
of September 2003.
Addo / Schotia Full Day
- 22h00. We will collect Guests from the Addo area or Port Elizabeth free
of charge or Guests can self drive to the Addo Park by 11h00. The drive in
Addo Park will be in an air conditioned vehicle and one will probably only
see Elephants. Most of the roads will be closed in Addo during and after
13h00 you will be transferred to Schotia HQ to settle accounts and then
onto Schotia Private Game Reserve for lunch in the Lapa at 14h00.
lunch your ranger will look for Giraffe, Rhino and the numerous antelope
that abound on Schotia. After a tea / coffee break at 17h30 the most
exciting part begins i.e.. Looking for the Lions. A buffet dinner is
served at 20h00 and Guests usually depart by 22h00. Meals and drinks are
complimentary and transfers are free of charge.
Bed and Breakfast
at Schotia is in three “honeymoon” style rondavels. The rondavels are
totally private and situated in the heart of the bush. The bathrooms are
en-suit and have double bath, basin, shower and toilet. The bedrooms have
double beds, fireplace, (with a real fire) and open onto a private
veranda. The Schotia package was designed to give Guests an African
Experience without “roughing it”. There is no electricity. The lamps
will be lit for you in the evening and the rooms are serviced daily.
- 15h00. A morning cruise (weather permitting) to the islands in Algoa
Bay. The sea is the largest wilderness on earth and one that man knows
very little about. Obviously sightings can not be guaranteed, but some
trips are very rewarding with sightings of Dolphins, Whales, Sharks,
Penguins, Seals and lots of sea birds. A sea food lunch as well as drinks
Addo Night Drive
- 22h00. A night drive in the Addo Park is probably the only place one
could see Buffalo on any of the tours offered by Schotia. You will first
be taken on an afternoon drive into the park, returning to the restaurant
for dinner and then you will board an open vehicle for a night drive.
Dinner and drinks are complimentary.
