Amazing to see all the animals in the wild. I spent 8 hours in the park and did not see half of it. I could have spent at least two days, maybe three to see the whole park. 180,000 acres of natural habitat full of animals. I didn't even get to the south park. This is not a zoo and... More

You WILL see elephants up close and personal. Also like the fact that it's a bit quieter than the Kruger. Jack's picnic site is fantastic for a braai!

While we did see a few dozen elephants, we didn't see much of anything else. The landscape does not make animal viewing very easy.

Chalets was neat and well maintained and serviced daily. We found that this small park is very clean and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The game drive was quite enjoyable and cheap if you compare it to the Kruger National park. Plenty of elephants and buffalo. Lots of kudu, warthogs, jackall and eland.

Staff at Cattle Baron fast and friendly . In the park itself there are a wide variety of animals including the... More

Apparently Addo National Park has the highest concentration of elephants in Africa, and with the amount that I've seen, I'm not surprised. The park is well laid out and signed well. There are a few paved roads in the north of the park but the rest are unsaved and in varying conditions. The park is easy to drive around but... More

What a place this is we travelled with family and stayed in the bottom camp for first night and what can I say what an adventure the accommodation was superb and cleaned to a high standard, we saw so much animals and was a great atmosphere that other travellers all spoke and asked where the best sightings were. Not many... More

We have stayed at main camp in a tent overlooking the waterhole twice and our only sadness was that two nights each time was too short. The park seems well maintained and the roads are in good repair. Everyone working there was friendly and made us feel very welcome. On an early am drive we came across a hyena walking... More

Great campsites under large trees on stones. New restaurant was great and the game drives as great as ever. Abulutions are great and the whole camp and park are well worth it.
