Multana safaris is a game conservancy in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, situated between Port Elizabeth and Grahamstown. It forms part of the larger “Assegai conservancy” which totals around 45.000 hectares. Due to its very steep and densely vegetated slopes descending to the Bushmansriver, the terrain is totally not suitable for crop or livestock farming. In an effort to protect these wild areas from human settlement encroachment a game conservancy was created. Today there are about 23 different animal species that call Multana their home and the birdlife and flora is exceptional and abundant.
We are located only 30 minutes from “Addo National Elephant Park” and many other daytrips like visiting the Sunshine Coast and Port Elizabeth are available in the surroundings. During your stay in our luxurious lodge with swimming pool, you and your group will be the only guests. We never mix clients or groups. Your host speaks fluent English, Deutsch, Français and Nederlands.
Multana safaris generates its income from a combination of tourists staying at the lodge and the sustainable use of the game populations in the conservancy, which are managed through the application of the latest scientifically based management practices. The yearly surplus of game animals, provides meat to the local population, while the hides are used by local artisans to produce various leather products. The skulls, horns and bones are themselves turned into decorative pieces by local painters and engravers, for sale in the tourism sector and overseas. Thus providing jobs and income for the impoverished local communities where good paying work is extremely hard to find. Nothing is wasted, and the funds from all this go back into the protection and management of the game populations and the land they live on.
We hope to see you here soon, and share the wonders of African wildlife and landscapes with you!
