What people are saying about Port Elizabeth

We had a great full day tour with our guide Joel. From the pick-up in our accommodation to lunch (delicious South African "braai") everything was organized very well. Joel knew all the tricks on how to best find the animals and we saw lots of elephants, kudus, zebras, buffalo, turtles and even a few lions. Of course, it's always a matter of luck with the animals, but Joel just got everything out for us. Thanks for that!

direct pick up from Cruise Terminal and 30 mins transfer to National Park, change of car, we used Jeeps for the park, first encounter with Zebras after a few minutes followed by Elephants and a lot of other animals, nice coffebreak with great views, very good explanations from our guide and a very good BBQ in the bush with excellent food. Great safari experience

If you want to see lots of elephants, Addo is your place. We saw lots of other wild animals too. Our driver was difficult to hear (open jeep) but whenever we said 'stop' to look closer or shoot pictures, he stopped. He was also able to spot lions which we had no way of spotting, as they were far away.

I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything, the breath taking beauty of the river that expose you to the ocean was marvelous. The view of the sand dunes......I can do this repeatedly

super brilliant thing. Caution. sandboarding is not snowboarding :)
