Addo Elephant National Park is a wonderful Destination for adventurers, outdoor and nature enthusiasts
Addo is a town located just outside of Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. The area is most famous for the Addo Elephant National Park. The reserve is home to South Africa’s largest elephant population, as well as the other members of the Big 7 (lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, Southern Right whale and great white shark). There are several accommodation options in the park and visitors can enjoy self-drive safaris as well as guided game drives. The greater Addo area also holds many attractions, from relaxation to adrenaline, whatever your taste may be.
Reasons to visit Addo Elephant National Park:
- Addo Elephant National Park isn’t the only place to enjoy the region’s rich wildlife. Game reserves like Lalibela and Shamwari are also nearby, as well as a cheetah breeding project and even safaris on elephant back.
- Addo boasts the longest twin zip-line in South Africa. There is no better (or faster) way to take in the area’s stunning scenery. There is also sandboarding and quad biking fun to be had at Sundays River.
- The area is a reminder of the wild beauty of the Eastern Cape. Wherever you stay, you will be greeted with a tranquillity like no other. Even better, there are plenty of walking trails for exploring.
- 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.
The Addo Elephant National Park is home to some of the most fascinating wildlife, including over 500 African elephants. Game drives are conducted both in the day and at night by trained guides who are knowledgeable about the area. Other wildlife that guests can expect to see include the rest of the Big 5 (lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard), as well as giraffe, warthog and more. The area is also home to the Big 7 – the Big 5 with the addition of the southern right whale and great white shark. Self-drive game drives are also available.
