Let us plan your dream African trip
The Addo Elephant National Park is a wonderful destination for adventurers, outdoor and nature enthusiasts.
At Addo, there are lovely picnic areas, and the guided bush walks and game drives are an exciting way to explore the wilderness and spot all the park’s magnificent animals, such as black rhino, zebra, ostrich, spotted hyenas, black backed jackals, buffalo, lion and leopard. Addo’s many antelope species, like the gemsbok, bushbuck, eland, kudu, wildebeest and springbok, never fail to delight. Furthermore, the unique flightless dung beetle is found almost exclusively in Addo. Addo is brilliant for a day’s self-drive and on a good day, from the comfort of your own car, you can see 250-300 elephants and the various other animals mentioned.
