Find the Big Five! The Eastern Cape Game Parks around Port Elizabeth are malaria-free safari destinations and are therefore ideal for families. The diverse landscape ranges from the dry, desolate Great Karoo to the lush Wild Coast. Witness elephants at the Addo Elephant National Park! Drawn to watering holes at certain times, sightings are virtually guaranteed all year round. Other animals in the park include lion, leopard, black rhino, buffalo, zebra, warthog and antelope. In addition to Addo, there are a number of excellent private game reserves in the area including Kariega, Amakhala, Shamwari, Samara and Kwandwe, where you can enjoy very exclusive safari experiences.
