Holiday Accommodation in Addo Elephant Park – The Addo Elephant Park is ideal to observe really large herds of elephants, but not only are these mammals are admired, but in Addo you will also find the Big Five and a lot more.
There are numerous different camps, whilst some do surround the park a most can be found in Addo Park. The Gorah Elephant Camp is and example of such an exciting camp in the heart of Addo Park.
You can either go to the park and do a self drive with your own car, but the visitors should consider the better option of taking a safari tour with an experienced ranger. These budget safari packages can be arranged with the park or at the numerous family accommodation units in Addo.
An unforgettable experience is when you drive over the Zuurberg mountain dome or through a thicket and suddenly a giant elephant herd appears before you. In other parks you can also see elephants, but only in Addo one can also watch 100 of these animals together.
At such sightings one can hardly see enough, we have always lingered for a long time in the various places and watched the driving and behavior of the herds. Great. Of course you can also find the Big Five here. One of the rare peculiarities was the observation of a white lion.
The journeys through this ever-wilderness are very beautiful and the crowning ending is, as with all Safaris of the Sundowners in nature, surrounded by wild animals. The Gin Tonic tastes especially good! If you wish, go on a safari at Addo Elephant National Park today. The reserve was established in 1931 as a shelter for the almost extinct Cape elephants. Today there are more than 400 elephants and other animal species like buffaloes, antelopes, leopards and rhinoceroses.
Our campsite has not only the usual facilities for self-catering, but also a restaurant, a souvenir shop and a pool. We are grateful to this after successful tent construction. Before we leave for the first game drive, we enjoy the view of the waterhole directly at the camp site. We see large elephant herds with small babies, which still play clumsily the herd and spray the cool wet with your trunks around.
After relaxing days in Chintsa, we set off again and headed westwards towards Addo National Park. The park is known for its many elephants and the fantastic location with visibility to the sea. Before this, however, we made a brief stop in Hogsback, where J.R.R. Tolkien has spent his childhood and got inspiration for landscapes in the “Lord of the Rings” and other works.
