Lanka Safaris

The owner says

Come and experience the ultimate African hunting safari in the rugged beauty of the Eastern Cape, where the Fish River Valley, provides a magnificent bushveld backdrop to the unspoiled wilderness that is Lanka Safaris. Not only is Lanka within close proximity of the Garden Route, Wild Coast, and the Indian Ocean, but is an area offering a spectacular hunting experience. Large open grasslands dotted with Euphorbia, Cabbage Trees, Spekboom, Acacias, Wild Olive and evergreen shrubs extend to the horizon.
The rolling hills provide a natural home to a wide variety of species, from the elusive Cape Bushbuck to the native Eastern Cape Kudu. The diversity of species living in this untamed habitat promises you the best Africa has to offer all on one safari. Whether you are a veteran or a novice we guarantee you the type of ethical safari experience that legends are made of.
