If you don't hire a car and you are staying inside Addo, how are you planning on getting around Addo? You can only take so many game drives before they become dull and repetitive, as they can only go an hour into the park, before they have to turn back. You will also hear the same stories.
If you are planning to stay in Addo and are relying on game drives, I suggest you rather look at staying at one of the private game reserves rather. Schotia and Amakhala are the cheapest. There at least you will get good long game guides.
If you are planning to stay outside Addo, the place that you stay at will probably organise good full day trips to Addo for you.Edited: 3:39 am, July 19, 2011
Thank you Lamlee. I am considering staying in the park accommodations because it would be the most affordable of the options. I haven't found a private game reserve that would fit the bill yet, but would take a look at your suggestions.
As lamlee says if you don't have a car I wouldn't stay in the park. We normally spend ten hours a day self driving. Park drives - a few hours a day - are really to complement self drive. Without a car you would hang around the camp much of the day with little to do.
J.C. Shuttle charges R700 for 1 to 3 persons (P.E. to Eastern Cape Reserves) and R800 for 4 pax.
Thanks TouristGuide. Very helpful.
Question-are these rates for J.C. Shuttle one-way fares to get to a game park, or round trip?
We need to get to Hlosi in November and I am starting to think about transportation...
These are one way.
Thanks for clarifying.
