During a South African safari with us, a visit to the Addo Elephant National Park is not only a visit to what’s become a fantastic conservational project, but also a beautiful area of the country. We’ll be able to take you on drives in the Park that will bring you into the presence of some of the majestic creatures of Africa, including the Big Five, as well as antelopes, zebras, hyenas, warthogs, baboon and springboks. Twitchers on a South Africa safari with us will be equally as thrilled as the animal-lovers, with up to 150 different bird species frequenting the Addo Elephant National Park and its surrounding areas. Furthermore, the Park also plays home to species of reptiles and amphibians, such as snakes, tortoises, lizards, frogs and toads.
Travellers on a South African safari with us will be able to witness the high biodiversity of the Park, which consists of five of the seven of South Africa’s major biomes. Our guides on safari offer interesting information about these biomes, which consist of grassland, nama-karoo, fynbos, thicket and forest. As one of the best National Parks in South Africa, offering some of the best safari game viewing possibilities, we delight in providing our guests with a stop at the Addo National Park during their South Africa safari.
