Sometimes we expect to see Elephants as this is what Addo Elephant National park is known for, not surprisingly we do see hundreds. But there is many other animals to be seen. You can self drive or use the resident rangers.

We spent a day in Addo, including a braai in the park for lunch. We saw lots of elephants, many very close to our vehicle. Our guide was very knowledgable and friendly as well. Addo is very densely bushed and it is harder to spot...More

Addo elephant park is a family paradise - with lots of herds of elephants. An abundance of a variety of antelope and other wildlife and very close to PE. The accommodation is fantastic- clean and neat and very well maintained.

First visit in 2000, I was "flabbergasted" by the amount of Elephants. after my first visit, I visited it every year from 2001 - 2010. In those years they unfortunately upgradet the dirt roads.

It was a lot dryer driving through this time. With fewer water holes, spotting game was a bit tricky! But we still got our fill of elephants and various antelope. Take picnic and stop at the picnic site in the park for lunch - they...More
