Visiting Addo was an amazing experience. We stayed here for 2 nights in Addo Main Camp in a forest cabin and we had a really great time. We saw lots of elephants, zebras, buffalos and even a jackal. Unfortunately we didn't see any other predators.

Addo Elephant NP is lovely and uncrowded. In addition to elephants, kudu, warthogs, etc., we saw cheetahs, and secretary birds. Lovely time

We had a great time there in June with 2 days spent exploring. We tried to do as much as we could and booked the horse ride and the 4x4 self drive. The horse ride was a bit disappointing, we are experienced riders and mostly walked. Also the 4x4 route that goes into the northern part of the park was... More

Very well maintained, loved the tick list for our kids and saw everything we wanted to see. Had lunch at the Cattle Baron and the food was reasonable for the price.

If you love elephants then this is the park for you. Get up close to these wonderful placid animals. Mom's and calves, big boys and playful teenagers. Head for one of the waterholes in the heat of the day and you can sit for ages watching them. Also great park for other animals but the main attraction are the many... More

We drove from the top gate to the bottom gate and were amazed at all the animals we saw while we were driving. What is nice is that the roads are good and you can use your own car. The fees at the gate are reasonable, the park is safe if you adhere to the rules and there is lots... More

A lovely trip into the park to see the Elli's. What an experience! The waterhole was crowded and the baby elephants played in the mud.

This beautiful place is home to many buck and too many elephants to count. We had a happy day with so many sightings of different buck and dozens of elephants. Our highlight of the day was watching two young Zebra playing with each other the way puppies do. We sat for ages taking pictures and laughing at their antics. Do... More
