South Africa Safari - Addo Elephant Park

Situated in the Eastern Cape, in close proximity to Port Elizabeth, the Addo Elephant Park is one of the largest conservation areas in South Africa. The rich diversity of this national park makes it one of the “must see” destinations in this area of the country during an African safari holiday.

The park has a rich history dating back to the 1930’s when it became apparent that a handful of remaining elephants, native to the area where in need of conservation. Since the park’s humble beginnings it has steadily grown into the third largest national park in South Africa and is home to a number of animals in their natural habitat. This includes the flightless dung beetle which has been declared a vulnerable species which is endemic to the Addo Elephant Park and a handful of other areas in South Africa. The park is also home to a diverse range of bird species and is a breeding ground to the African Crowned Eagle, Cape Gannet, Roseate Tern and African Penguin amongst others.

You may have heard of the “Big Five” which most people want to see during a safari tour in South Africa, however not many people have heard about the famous “Big Seven”, native only to the Addo Elephant Park. The big seven includes the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo, Southern Right Whale and the magnificent Great White Shark.

Accommodation is available within the park and ranges from luxury African safari accommodation, comfortable family holiday lodges, to tended camps for the more adventurous. Game drives are a must during your visit at to the park and are available as a self drive option or can be accompanied by a guide. You may also want to explore different means of exploring the park, such as a horse ride, hike or 4x4 trail.
