There are some excellent game viewing opportunities in the Eastern Cape. Much is said about spotting the Big Five and here you have a good chance to see all of them, although you would have to be very lucky to see them all in the same day! On game drives you will have an experienced ranger to help you make the most of what you see; they really can enhance your enjoyment of the trip and are an absolute encyclopaedia of information.
