Addo Elephant National Park Full-Day Safari

1. Addo Elephant National Park Full-Day Safari

Get picked up from your hotel in Port Elizabeth. Spend a full day exploring the third largest National Park in South Africa with an expert local guide! The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area.  Nowadays, you can see a variety of antelope and zebra species, as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The park is also the only one in the world to conserve the “Big 7” – the Big 5 as well as the southern right whale and great white shark off the Algoa Bay coast.  An excursion to the Addo Elephant park is a must when visiting this unique area.

Port Elizabeth: Sandboarding with Short Boat Trip

2. Port Elizabeth: Sandboarding with Short Boat Trip

Travel down the picturesque Sundays River to the Alexandria Dune field; the largest and most impressive dune field in South Africa. Suited to beginners and experienced sandboarders, choose from 2 or 3-hour sandboarding tours which give you ample time to learn some new skills and have a great time while doing it. If you are not quite comfortable to stand on the board, try a sit down or belly-board ride down the dune. Otherwise the guides will show you how to master the technique of standing on the board as you surf down the dune.

Full-Day Safari with Traditional Braai'd Lunch

3. Full-Day Safari with Traditional Braai'd Lunch

Your experienced and enthusiastic guide will do their best to locate as much of the game available in the area and interpret their behavior for you during your drive. The first few hours of the tour are usually good to see antelope, zebra and lion. As this safari covers all time periods of the day, you should have the opportunity to see most game species. Stopping for a tea and coffee break at around 10:30 AM, you will continue on the game drive for sightings of elephants and buffalo near the watering holes. At lunchtime you can enjoy a delicious South African braai with juice, mineral water, beer and white wine. After lunch continue on the safari before being returned to your place of accommodation. Refreshments will be served throughout the drive.

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!

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.

We really enjoyed the tour with them. John was a great guide, he knew a lot about the animals and we always safe. The Picnic was awsome. Unfortunately some roads in the park were closed. Thanks a lot John!

We saw alot of elephants and other animal. Our guide Elvis was an excellent guide. 5g
