Addo Elephant Park
Addo Elephant National Park is a diverse wildlife conservation park situated close to Port Elizabeth in South Africa and is one of the country’s 19 national parks. The jewel in Eastern Cape's crown is Addo Elephant National Park, South Africa's third-largest national park, located 70km north of Port Elizabeth and encompassing both the Zuurberg mountains and the Sundays River Valley. It protects the remnants of the huge elephant herds that once roamed the Eastern Cape. When Addo was proclaimed a national park in 1931, there were only 11 elephants left; today there are more than 600 in the park, and you’d be unlucky not to see some. A day or two at Addo is a highlight of any visit to this part of the Eastern Cape, not only for the elephants but for the lions, zebras, black rhinos, Cape buffaloes, spotted hyenas and myriad birds. The park is also one of few which boasts the ‘Big Seven’, thanks to sightings of great white sharks and southern right whale (in season) off its coastal sections.

Search the unique river banks, bush and reed beds for a wide variety of bird life and smaller animals like the duiker, bushbuck or stately Kudu. The river is a bird watchers paradise. Catch a glimpse of the rarely seen White fronted Bee – Eater as it soakes up the sun in sheltered areas of the river or perhaps darting from its perch in persuit of insects on the wing. You may even view the rarely seen African Finfoot swimming in and out of reed beds and man-made structures along the river’s banks. View the elusive Water Monitor or Likewaan that can reach lenghts of up to 1.5 meters. Share in the exitement while cruising and witness various species of surface swimming mullet fish dart in all different directions or even jump clear of the waters surface in an effort to escape the boat.
