Brilliant trip
Alison_A, Jan 2023
From pick up at the hotel in the morning to drop off at the end of the day, everything was brilliant. Our tour guide shared her amazingly knowledge with us in an interesting and amusing manner. I saw so many elephants along with kudu, baboons, buffalo, zebra, ostrich and baboons. Even the dung beetle were fascinating. Lunch was gorgeous and the coffee stop in the open bush was surreal. Fantastic day out.
Fabulous tour in Addo Elephant Park

This full day guided safari in Addo Elephant Park was fabulous. We saw lots of elephants plus several other animals: Zebras; Buffalo; Kudu; Warthogs and even a Dungbeetle struggling to move it's ball of elephant do-do. The Braai at lunchtime was excellent and our guide, Sia, was very knowledgeable and helpful. As most of the roads in the park are unmade, it's much safer to use a local tour. A highly recommended experience.
Great trip filled with fun, adventure and learning.

Wonderful experience. Game ranger Steve was very well informed and turned the experience into one of fun and learning. The trip was birthday gift for 7 year old animal lover. She enjoyed it and continues to share about her experience.
Response from Host, Aug 2022
Fantastic I am super happy you all had a great day, and that your daughter enjoyed her birthday present so much. Steve is an awesome guide. Thank you again for booking with Addo Game Drives.
We could have not wished for a better guide than Steven!

First of all I have to say that we were lucky as it was only me and my boyfriend on the tour. So it was very exclusive! We had an absolutely amazing day with Steven. He was so smart, knowledgeable and great to be around. He had an answer to every question we had. We were also lucky to see the lions! The braai was delicious and prepared with such passion and love. The tour was definitely a highlight of our holiday and we would highly recommend it to everybody!
Top Notch

What a great experience, I really wanted to see elephants and boy did I get my moneys worth. Also we’re able to track the lions and saw them up close. The braii was like top chef quality. And our guide Steven went above and beyond to make sure we able to see as much as possible, and had so much knowledge about the park and animals. Highly recommend.
Very nice day at Addo

Everything was fine. Great day in Addo Park with a lot of wonderful picture I was able to take home. Was a great braai too. The cars are very good for this tip. Clint did everything to give us a great day, Can recommend it truly. Thanks for make the day a memorable experience . See you next time in PE.

We had a wonderful day in Addo guided by Stephen who was informative and helpful. After a morning in which we saw many animals as well, of course, elephants we enjoyed a lovely bbq. In the afternoon we went lion hunting, unfortunately to no avail, but we did see other wildlife. If I have one small complaint it is that spending 4 hours looking for a lion was too long. However, I do highly recommend the excursion.
