Game Viewing in the Western Cape

With most well known Game reserves in the north of the country, visitors to South Africa could be forgiven for not knowing that Game drives are available here in the Western Cape as well.

How often do visitors come to Cape Town and the Garden Route to see the sights and then head off to Mpumalanga, Limpopo and the Northern Cape because that’s where they believe they must go to see game?

If you know where to go, you can see the Big Five and many other wild animals in their natural environment, here in the Western Cape.

Add to this the excitement of going on a safari drive and seeing the animals Africa is famous for and you have the perfect holiday without ever leaving the Cape .
