Your hotel/closest drop-off point
You will be picked up from your hotel/closest pick-up point and taken in an air-conditioned vehicle to the renowned Addo Elephant Park. A professional English-speaking guide will accompany you on this tour.
Enjoy a scenic drive (approx. 72kms) from Port Elizabeth to the Addo Park National Park, South Africa’s third-largest national reserve and home to the densest elephant population in the world, one of the most popular game reserves in the Eastern Cape, and the best place to see herds of elephant.
The Park has expanded to become the only park in the world to lay claim to Africa’s “Big 7” – elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, leopard, southern right whale and great white shark. Other animals include zebra, jackal, bushbuck, kudu, and other species of antelope. The flora within the Park is quite varied, and like all plant life, is a central factor to the ecological system in place. Several species of rare and endemic plants, particularly succulent shrubs and geophytes are native to the South African region within the Park
Once in the reserve, you will be taken on a three-hour game drive (closed vehicle game drive) deep into the heart of the reserve. This allows for great opportunities for spotting elephant, buffalo, black rhino, zebra, jackal, bushbuck, kudu and other species of antelope.
At the end of the tour, you will be dropped back at your hotel/closest drop-off point.
