scotia game drives booked separately?

i really want to do some game drives...morning, afternoon and evening...should i pay to stay at their reserve...even though I dont need all the lovely accommodation and food...or is it possible to stay cheap elsewhere and then travel for the game drives?

what sort of costs?

many thanks

Part of the experience is staying IN the game reserve. Listening to jackal and hyena at night.

Have you looked at Addo Elephant National Park?

I love the big cats, I dont really enjoy photographing elephants, I have also not long been back from sri lanka, I will also be staying in kruger so thought i could save a bit of cash by leaving addo out.

thanks

You can book the Schotia drive seperately from staying there, but its only the afternoon/evening experience and not a morning drive. Still, you get both the day and night experience at Schotia in one package

booked to stay overnight...all sorted thanks

do you know how far away the cheetah place is? I want to leave Port Elizabeth at 8am and drive there to be at Scotia for 2.45. Hopefully this is doable.

Yes that is very doable!

Port Elizabeth - Cheetah Breeding Project is appr. one hours drive on the R 75 (they often have lion cubs too) .

Then from the Cheetah Breeding Project - Scotia is appr. 1.5 to 2 hours drive (depending if you want to stay on tarred road or not)
