We drive you around in the park, which is very large, over 70 000 acres, with lots of WILD game – lion, buffalo, black rhino are sometimes seen and many plains game species. You are not allowed off the vehicle due to safety / park rules. It is a wilderness area so only has access roads to some places There is a facebook link showing guest sightings, which are good.
1 morning visit to Cradock town, return to camp for lunch.
1 morning visit to the Owl House with fossil tour, if fossil tour is open, done together with
1 visit to Historical town of Graaff Reinet, includes lunch.
This is the second oldest town in SA, it is small, has old quaint buildings, history museums, curio shops, art & craft shops, the valley of desolation and game area, where Buffalo are sometimes seen.
This is an art museum in the nearby village of NIEU BETHESDA which is filled with cement statues and statuettes of strange figures and animals with the whole building covered in different coloured ground glass, also includes a small fossil museum & short fossil tour.
Can upgrade to 8 day hunt tour, 9 nights for $ 400 / person, if upgraded to an 8 day hunt tour then package includes a tour to Addo Elephant National Park for 2 - 3 hours including lunch on your way back to PE, so your flight from PE to Johannesburg then needs to be from 4 pm on day 10 of your Safari or you need to book a hotel in PE for that night for your cost before flying home - This is very important !
Third person, hunter or non hunter, may join the safari for total daily rate of $ 900 and share the package game, but hunt is still with 1 PH.
Enjoy your South African hunting and tour safari with Richard Holmes Safaris for the above listed trophy animals in the Eastern Cape. Our plains game Safaris take place on huge private ranches ranging in size from 8000 - 22,000 acres. There are no interior fences on our ranch and few fences on our other private hunting plains game ranches and all hunting is done by spot and stalk, so it is real open fair chase hunting. Please ask our references.
