We took a guided game drive, could have gone in our own vehicle, but would have missed quite a lot. The park was quite busy near the gate and the concession area, much less crowded in the interior.

If you want to have an experience up close with an elephant this is the place to go. What an amazing experience. You can take as long as you like and at one time our car was surrounded by a herd of around 20 elephants. It was awesome.

I have visited the Alexandria State Forest on numerous occasions; at times to complete the two-day hiking trail and on other occasions to spend a night or two in the lovely huts in the forest. The trail is demanding, yet passes through a wonderful variety of biomes and is well worth the effort. For a relaxed day or two, the huts in the forest are magnificent.

Bookings are made through the Matyolweni offices of Addo National Park.

Without fail, for the last four visits I have had issues with the booking and/or conservation fees on arrival at the Alexandria Forest section. It seems that they have no authority to make any decisions for themselves, are not linked to the SANParks website, and have to phone Matyolweni for advice/decision making/queries and so on. Each time the outcome has not been favourable; in fact, were the area not so beautiful, I would definitely not return.

We visited this with our kids this time (4x). An absolute must when you are in the area. Easy access by own car and we were lucky to see close to 150 elephants (!) near one of the pools, next to other game. Worth while to spend the whole day (or 2).
