The Kragga Kamma Game Reserve is a firm favourite amongst the local residents and regular visitors of Port Elizabeth. This Eastern Cape game reserve is brimming with wildlife and fascinating bird species, and is conveniently situated on the outskirts of the city centre.
In addition to its close proximity to both the suburbs and the central hub of the city, Kragga Kamma is acclaimed for its sheer abundance of plants and animals.
Some of the species for which Kragga Kamma Game Reserve is so well known and loved include:
Animals roam freely, watching peacefully as your vehicle passes by them, allowing you the opportunity to gaze at leisure. The animals are accustomed to the presence of vehicles and, therefore, do not run away or hide from them. Such close-up experiences make for fabulous photographs by which to remember your time in Port Elizabeth. A 2-hour guided tour is also available, transporting guests in an open Land Rover and accompanied by an informative, qualified guide.
There are a number of accommodation facilities available for guests wanting to stay in the reserve overnight. Wake up to the calls of monkeys and the curious musings of friendly ostriches. Relax in gorgeous surrounds before exploring the reserve more, perhaps even playing with the tame cheetah. All overnight facilities are self-catering and comprise 1) chalets, 2) thatched lodges, 3) log cabins and 4) luxury safari tents.
There are beautiful picnic spots and barbecue areas available, shaded by the tall Eastern Cape trees. This is ideal for day visitors or overnight guests wanting to sample the fresh air and wildlife of South Africa. There is also a restaurant on site, boasting a range of delicious treats and tasty meals; all enjoyed inside or on the deck overlooking the enclosures of some of the animals.
The Forest Walk offers guests the opportunity to walk the treetop boardwalk, which extends for 400 metres; winding through the dense forest home of many species, including more than 200 identified bird species.
Gates open every day at 08h00 and close for entry at 17h00. In summer, all vehicles need to be out of the park by 19h30. In winter, the time for final exit is 18h00.
