Full description
Get picked up from your hotel in Port Elizabeth. Spend a full day exploring the third largest National Park in South Africa with an expert local guide! The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area. 

Nowadays, you can see a variety of antelope and zebra species, as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The park is also the only one in the world to conserve the “Big 7” – the Big 5 as well as the southern right whale and great white shark off the Algoa Bay coast. 

An excursion to the Addo Elephant park is a must when visiting this unique area.

The guide was very pleasant and nice. We saw some animals and it was wonderful. Elephants, families of elephants with their babies. We saw them playing. We also saw zebras and lions and more. The problems were that: 1. it was very hot in the car. The air con was hardly effective. 2. We drove many hours and saw very little. So most of the time was hot and boring. Lunch was very good. But again, it was very hot at the restaurant.

We waited on the pier for 45 minutes while being sand blasted. They apologized for the hold up.
