Spend 2 days exploring the Greater Addo Elephant National Park area with our expert local guides!
Learn more about the amazing biodiversity in the 3rd largest national park in South Africa. The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931 when only eleven elephants remained in the area. Today this finely-tuned ecosystem is home to one of the densest elephant populations on earth, with over 600 elephants, lion, buffalo, the endangered black rhino, spotted hyena, leopard, a variety of antelope and zebra species, as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The park can exclusively claim to be the only national park 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. Plans are currently afoot to include the proposed proclamation of a 120 000 ha (296 500 acres) Marine Protected Area which includes islands that are home to the world's largest breeding populations of Cape gannets and a second largest breeding population of African penguins.

The experience was great: interesting, exciting, diverse and perfectly organized. Afroventures took care of all the logistics and everything happened exactly as planned: pickup, drop-off (both from Port Elizabeth), food, accommodation and the various activities. The safari itself was great fun, our guides were knowledgeable and showed us all the interesting things, and the boat ride was exceptionally good. The wonderful folks over at the Dungbeetle accommodation were charming and helpful and Mike and Beau were exceptionally great tour guides who made the entire experience so much better, fun and interesting. Leigh's coordination was flawless and reassuring. The entire experience was safe and calm. Can't recommend this enough - don't miss it!

We had a fantastic experience in Addo National Park. Our guide John was exceptional - knowledgable, passionate and hilarious, he made the experience. We saw loads of animals (Elephants, zebras, buffalo, cudu, baboon, hyena, a rhino and luckily a lion!). The accommodation was a delightful cottage just outside the National park and the Sunday river cruise was a great addition. Brilliant experience start to finish would highly recommend!
