Cape Town Game Reserves
Reserves all situated in the Western Cape province of South Africa offer guests the opportunity of a Big 5 safari near Cape Town. With the magnificent Karoo as a backdrop and the unique Fynbos as a biome these game reserves offer the chance to spot amongst other Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo and Leopard not forgetting the pretty amazing birdlife on show.
Cape Town, Karoo and Garden Route Game Reserves obviously cannot compete with the more game rich reserves up north including the Kruger, Natal, Madikwe and Eastern Cape, the landscape and flora just simply cannot support large amounts of wildlife. But on saying that there are a few games reserves that are well worth the effort of visiting with the added bonus of Malaria Free, Big 5 and luxury accommodation options.
All reserves are within an easy 2-3 hour drive from Cape Town, a few reserves even offer a landing strip for private air charters - the choice is entirely yours.
