Addo Elephant Park

Addo Elephant Park is situated in the thick bushveld of the Sundays Valley. It is a mere 1 hours drive from Port Elizabeth, making it very accessible by vehicle.

The park was originally established in 1931 to save 11 African elephants on the brink of extinction. However, over the years, the park has expanded in both size as well as the diversity of species. Not only is it home to the Big 5, over the last decade, coastal habitat has been protected, and now the park can boast that it is home to the Big 7 with the inclusion of the Great White Shark and Sperm Whale.

The incredible bushveld supports a wide variety of species, large mammals, antelope, big and small predators and a vast array of bird species. It is also home to the much loved Dung Beetle.
The park has become synonymous with outdoor and eco-adventure. There are a wide variety of activities to partake in from game drives, walking and hiking trails, horseback riding and river activities. Day visitors can do self-drives and picnic sites are available.

With 120 000 hectares to explore, Addo Elephant park is a must-do when visiting the Eastern Cape.
