At Eagles Crag Lodge in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, we pride ourselves on presenting wildlife interaction that is sure to be the highlight of your stay. Guests staying with us are offered game drives through the reserve for an experience of a lifetime.

Our game drives are available for morning and evening trips, as this is when the animals are most active. Our vehicles are open, comfortable, and give you a panoramic view of the area.

You also get to meet wonderful people from all over the world and often make friends for life as you are paired with other safari goers on the vehicle. You get to spend quality time with your ranger and soak up his or her vast knowledge of the Eastern Cape in South Africa.

You will get to see an array of animals as game viewing is not affected by the weather, seasons or time of year. Animals are active 365 days a year!

Included on the game drive is a lovely coffee stop to perk you up on the morning drive and a sundowner stop in the evening where you can enjoy sipping on a delicious gin & tonic and snacking on traditional South African snacks as the sun goes down over the horizon.
