Elephant family in Addo Elephant Park

A day visit to Addo Elephant National Park

One of the things we love about living in the Eastern Cape (also locally known as ‘the adventure province’) are the numerous game parks scattered through the province. We posted about our day trip to Kragga Kamma Game Park – a beautiful game park just outside Port Elizabeth. This post will take you to the Addo area, which is home to the Addo Elephant National Park. The Park is one of the largest South African National Parks (SANParks), covers five different biomes and hosts the Big 7 – lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino, elephant, southern right whale and the great white shark (we saw your Big 5 Kruger and raised you by two 😉 ). The Park includes a Marine Protected Area. Addo sees hundreds of thousands of tourists annually.
