Addo offers unrivalled biodiversity and a magnificent game viewing experience in a Malaria free environment. Spend a full day exploring the 3rd largest National Park in South Africa with our expert guides! 


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. The park includes 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 the second largest breeding population of African penguins. An excursion to the Addo Elephant Park is a must when visiting this unique area.
