So much to see, it took us 5 hours to drive through the park. Highlights were seeing the elephants and zebras with their babies.

Saw so many elephants, zebra and warthog. Also saw jackal, yellow mongoose and buffalo. No sign of lions which was the only dissapointment, but I had a fantastic day out here!

On a trip back from Cape Town to Durban we decided to stay over in Colchester, outside Port Elizabeth. Our host at Sundowner B&B mentioned that we were only around five minutes away from one of the gates to the Addo ELephant pPark - so we decided to stay another day and take a look around the park.

Driving with your own car through the park is a great experience. We started in the afternoon and saw dozens of elephants and other animals. A must see !

Spent 4 hours driving through the Addo Elephant Park, only saw 2 elephants up close, but lots of other animals, jackal, kudu. Lovely scenery and good facilities. Well maintained and organized.

Visited Addo last year and it was absolutely amazing. Within minutes of arriving we saw zebra and warthogs at the watering hole. Over the next couple of days we saw about 200 elephants, two lions, ( on a sunset drive) zebra Kurdu, a caracal on a night drive only to mention a few. If you get the chance to visit... More

What I love about Addo is that it is more rustic then around Krugar. So far fewer travelers. It is better to go on warmer day. If you can bring a good book and relax at a watering hole.

We took the self drive option and were overwhelmed by the large numbers of elephants, zebras, buffalo and other animals that we saw in their natural environment but were able to get so close to them all. Spent the whole day taking all the routes available and had a truly wonderful day. Had lunch at the restaurant which was also... More
