Scenic park with a high amount of diversity

Views: 101 Visited: Jun 2019 Reviewed: Jul 16, 2019

This beautiful and scenic park located not too far from Port Elizabeth on the Garden Route of South Africa is a park well worth a visit. Located out of a Malaria zone also makes this park attractive.
As the name suggests the park has a high concentration of Elephants and one really gets to enjoy amazing sightings of these gentle giants of Africa. During our recent visit we had a good sighting of Lions near the main camp. Other highlights inc... read more

Addo Elephant National Park

Views: 656 Visited: Oct 2014 Reviewed: Dec 04, 2014

This is a beautiful park in South Africa with a natural beauty that will surprise you. The photo opportunities are really good and the variety of animal is quite amazing. The stay at the main camp chalets were really a good surprise and the rooms are clean and well equipped. The restaurant offers a great variety and my guests really enjoyed the stay at this park. We will definitely be back next year for the 2015 senior citizen trips to this pa... read more

More than justifying the name...

Entering just after sunrise the park was shrouded in a blanket of mist. Numerous kudu and zebra stood watchful beside the road, while the omnipresent warthogs continually scurried off into the grass. The mist gave the park a mystical feel and as the blanket gradually lifted and we saw our first herd, 70-80 elephants playing, eating, interacting, all just metres from the truck. Within three hours we'd seen another four giant herds; at waterhole... read more

Close Encounters of the Elephant Kind!

Views: 824 Visited: Apr 2012 Reviewed: Apr 25, 2013

If you are coming to Africa to see Elephant, the Addo Elephant Park is just the place to go! Established primarily to protect the decreasing Elephant population of just 16 animals back in 1931, the Park now has over 550 of these great creatures, so you are bound to see several during your visit. Predators have also been re-introduced so you can see all the Big 5 here. We have taken a few day-trips into the park and have always had a wonderful ... read more

Up close and personal with the Elephants!

Views: 724 Visited: Mar 2011 Reviewed: Apr 23, 2013

Addo Elephant Park offers nothing short of a paradise setting. The moment you set foot in the park you will know, there is no other place like Addo on earth! Nowhere else in the world can you view Africa’s Big 7, all in the confines of one park. Bush, mountains, ocean, vast open spaces with dark nights brightened by the sounds of the African bush-veld, yet close enough to the Port Elizabeth city for comfort. If you find yourself visiting the ... read more

Not just about elephants!

Views: 748 Visited: Sep 2012 Reviewed: Apr 23, 2013

Located on the Garden Route of South Africa, Addo Elephant Park, the reserve has both lush vegetation and semi-arid desert like conditions. While you may think that this park is elephants only, you can also see black rhino’s, lions, zebras, blue duikers and spotted hyenas. If you are lucky, you may even spot a leopard or two. It’s also great to track the mighty dung beetles.

On hot days, you will see elephants cooling down in the water... read more
