Addo travel centre and adventure is the first and only indigenous company in addo area and with the owner equipped with 15 years knowledge of the African bushveld. My passion for the Bush speaks for itself considering the fact that I initially worked for prominent safari companies like. Addo safari lodges for 8 years as operations and marketing manager then freelance guide for 5 star lodges like Gorah elephant camp . Riverbend lodge, Woodall and elephant house just to name a few .
Addo Elephant National Park was proclaimed in 1931 to provide a safe haven for the few wild elephants who survived the early 20th century. Today the elephants number in their hundreds, thanks to the efforts of the National Parks Board and a unique vegetation type - subtropical thicket, or valley bushveld. It is this thick, impenetrable vegetation that has not only provided protection for the elephants and buffalo in the area, but also provided a rich food source, supporting what is now the most dense population of wild elephants on the planet. Our tour concentrates on finding and viewing elephants. Buffalo, Rhino and Lion sightings are a definite bonus, while you may also be lucky enough to see dung beetles keeping the park tidy!
All tours are conducted by a professional Game Ranger with 18 years experience.
