Eastern Cape Game Reserves

Eastern Cape Game Reserves Safaris


South Africa’s Eastern Cape provides some of the country’s most accessible game viewing within its malaria-free private game reserves.

Track the Big 5 through this picturesque landscape with the help of an expert guide before spending the afternoon relaxing at your lodge or luxury camp.

Each game reserve offers a unique experience and they are all within easy reach of Port Elizabeth airport making the perfect start or finish to a Garden Route fly drive.


Trailfinders is the UK and Ireland's No.1 to South Africa. Almost all of our travel consultants have travelled extensively here, often returning time and time again.
