Addo Elephant National Park

What was once a relatively small elephant sanctuary with just 16 mammals wandering the land has since become one of South Africa’s most diverse nature parks. Established in 1931, the Addo Elephant National Park is now home to more than 500 elephants, lions, rhino, hyena, leopards and zebra. But animals aren’t the only thing drawing travelers to Addo.

Guided game drives, self-driven safaris, horseback riding and an extensive network of novice and advanced hiking trails make Addo a popular stop for travelers to the southern Cape. High-end lodges and rugged bush camps also offer plenty of accommodation options for visitors who want to enjoy the estuaries, savannahs and forests that surround the park.

Practical Info

The Addo Elephant National Park is located in the Eastern Cape approximately a 9-hours drive from Cape Town. Guided game drives cost around R280 per person. Gates to the park open and close depending on the season, so its best to check with your accommodation for an accurate and up-to-date schedule.
