My husband and I just returned from a month's adventure in Africa. Our first ever safari experience was at Schotia, which was recommended by our bed and breakfast host in Wilderness. Let me say that overall, it's entertaining and a rather fun experience seeing all the animals up close and personal. We spent 2 nights in the reserve and thoroughly enjoyed our lodge, which was lit by candles, and all along the pathway leading to it from the roadway. The food though is mediocre. Game drives: Our guide, Zane, was fabulous. He is extremely knowledgeable about the reserve itself, and all the animals (and we did see many, i,e. lions, zebras, elephants, crocodiles, hippos, rhinoceros, impala, kudu, etc.). Zane was very accommodating and we particularly enjoyed our half day with him in Addo Elephant Park. The negative side is that it seems a bit contrived, a bit like an outside, drive-through zoo. The guides pretty much know where all the animals are located. But it's perfect if you want to see the big five in a small game park.
