Full-Day All Inclusive Safari with Traditional Braai Lunch

1. Full-Day All Inclusive Safari with Traditional Braai Lunch

Your experienced and enthusiastic guide will do their best to locate as much of the game available in the area and interpret their behavior for you during your drive. The first few hours of the tour are usually good to see antelope, zebra and lion. As this safari covers all time periods of the day, you should have the opportunity to see most game species. Stopping for a tea and coffee break at around 10:30 AM, you will continue on the game drive for sightings of elephants and buffalo near the watering holes. At lunchtime you can enjoy a delicious South African braai with juice, mineral water, beer and white wine. After lunch continue on the safari before being returned to your place of accommodation. Refreshments will be served throughout the drive.

Colchester: Full-Day Addo Elephant National Park Tour

2. Colchester: Full-Day Addo Elephant National Park Tour

After gathering at the Colchester meeting point with your guide, you'll make your way to the world-renowned Addo Elephant National Park. Addo is the only park in the world that is home to Africa’s “Big 7” animals, which includes the elephant, rhinoceros, lion, buffalo, leopard, southern-right whale, and great white shark. Admire these creatures in their natural habitat in this must-see destination on the Eastern Cape. Join a qualified guide on a day safari and learn about the large variety of animals as well as the surrounding area. Each drive is unique and unpredictable, as the animals are constantly on the move. With this in mind, your guide will do their best to provide you with the best sightings possible. Tours take place in a closed vehicle with air-conditioning, large windows, and usb charge points at each seat. Lunch, light snacks, and drinks will also be provided on each tour, and at the conclusion of your experience you'll be returned back to Colchester.

Port Elizabeth: Addo Elephant National Park Private Safari

3. Port Elizabeth: Addo Elephant National Park Private Safari

Get picked up from your accommodation/cruise terminal in Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth), Addo, Bluewater Bay or Colchester. Spend a full day exploring the third-largest national park in South Africa with your guide. We explore the third largest national park in South Africa, the Addo Elephant National Park, a malaria-free, diverse wildlife conservation park close to Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth) in South Africa. We spend our time together experiencing the diverse plant, animal, and bird life Addo has to offer. Make sure to be on the lookout for the Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. We may see lions, hyenas, various antelopes, the Cape Buffalo, our tenacious warthog, and inquisitive zebras. Perfect for photo opportunities! We make a quick pitstop at the famous Jack’s Picnic site, where you can stretch your legs and use the ablution facilities. We continue to the main camp for lunch at The Cattle Baron, where you are welcome to browse the curios shop or stroll to the lookout point below the eating deck. After lunch, we continue exploring the north side of the park before departing back. The approximate time spent in the park is between six and seven hours. A trip to Addo Elephant Park is a must when visiting our beautiful city and surrounding areas. We are looking forward to taking you on this tour!

Wir waren die einzigen Gäste an diesem Tag und wurden von Marilyn, einer beeindruckenden, sehr kompetenten und engagierten Rangerin in wirklich jeden Winkel des Parks gebracht. Wir haben Dutzende Elefanten, eine Elefantenkuh mit Zwillingen cape buffalo, kudus, hartebeest, eland, zebra, Warzenschweine, mango, viele Vögel und Pflanzen gesehen. Mittags wurde im Busch gegrillt- lecker. Wir kamen nach 10 Stunden völlig beeindruckt zurück. SEHR EMPFEHLENSWERT.

The safari was great. Steven is a great guide who is passionate about what he does. He is happy about every question and can answer almost everything. The hours flew by, which is why a full-day safari is definitely worth it - not least because of the super delicious joint braai for lunch, which rounds off the whole experience again.

It was an all-round successful day, starting with the pick-up service, coffee time, braaii, our guide Steven had organized everything very well and drove us to many great places. Elephants, zebras, antelopes, warthogs and much more - simply unforgettable
