I did a morning excursion (just a few hours long) and got to see elephants (including a 7 day old baby!), wart hogs, and kudu. Our guide even spotted a lion lounging on a distant hill. It was a little chilly in the open jeep (they did not provide blankets so you may want to bring a jacket). We had... More

Great National Park with lots of different wildlife - zebras, kudos, jackals, eland and elephants (if you go on the right game drives). When we called the park ahead of time to make game drive reservations, the woman on the phone recommended the evening drive, so that's what we booked. When we arrived at the park, there was a sheet... More

Although small a great park to visit...we saw lions and of course plenty of elephants, buffalos, zebras, kudu, birds, etc. Really worth for a 1-3 days safari.

We stayed at the Addo Main Camp for one night after arriving the first time in South Africa. We made a little selfdriving tour through the Park and were surprised about the animals. We saw so much of them and different kinds like warthogs, the yellow mangoose, a buffaloe, an jackal, many small and big antelopes, zebras, ostriches and of... More

The wide range of game amazed us. We saw buffalo, lions, golden web spiders, warthog, elephant (including being in an elephant road block) as well as numerous species of deer and antelope. Our guide, Etta, was also extremely knowlegable about the flora to be found in the Park.

This is a must for Tourists and good value. However we were very disappointed in the condition of our Chalet, which we found had been neglected if compared to our first visit. The counters had burn marks on them, our bedding was threadbare and the pillows were as if someone had placed stones in them. The lock on the patio... More

On entering the park there is a shop which has an array of food, drinks and souvenirs. Then the trip around the park took approx 2-3 hours. Went as part of a group and was able to see many animals. These included zebra, elephants and even lions. Very popular family destination.

Addo Elephant Park is place to see elephants, don’t expect to ride them or touch them they are wild animals that are treated with respect. These are prenominal animals that never fail to leave you in awe. I would recommend going on a bus tour by Addo as they will give you a lot of information and point out a... More

We love Addo! A short drive from us here in St Francis Bay, Addo National Park is a great quick get away that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. We stayed in a self catering Forest Cabin, which can sleep up to 4 people. Now, let me just get this out there…we are not campers, and this was the... More

There's nothing that I disliked about ADDO, the scenery was amazing and the elephant there is at their best!
