Wake up, it's time to take a walk on the wild side! You'd be mad not to embark on a safari whilst your staying in the Eastern Cape - join an exclusive safari game drive and you might be lucky enough to see the majestic Big Five with your own eyes! You'll find yourself spellbound as fabulous elephants plod past and giraffes bow their necks gracefully. Take the opportunity to go birding - South Africa is home to some of the rarest birds in the world, from birds of prey to the tiny species that balance atop the back of wild buffalo.
Make sure to reserve some time to visit the animals at the Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, or jungle royalty at the Jean Byrd Centre, where you'll get to meet lions and big cats who have been saved from areas across the globe. Seeing these gorgeous creatures thriving under the care of those at the reserve is truly heart-warming, as well as being a once-in-a-lifetime experience that only fabulous African lodges like the Shamwari Eagles Crag can bring you. Leave some time for a safari spa treatment! The surrounds of the Eastern Cape are an unparalleled, secluded and unique environment for an African Scalp Massage, or even a full body scrub and wrap journey - lush.
