Addo Elephant Park Day Tour

Port Elizabeth

Activity Description

Spend a full day exploring the 3rd largest National Park in South Africa with our expert guides!

The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only eleven elephants remained in the area. Today this finely-tuned ecosystem is home to one of the densest elephant populations on earth, with over 600 elephant, lion, buffalo, the endangered black rhino, spotted hyena, leopard, a variety of antelope and zebra species, as well as the unique Addo flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. The park can exclusively claim to be the only national park 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.Plans are currently afoot to include the proposed proclamation of a 120 000 ha (296 500 acre) Marine Protected Area which includes islands that are home to the world’s largest breeding populations of Cape gannets and second largest breeding population of African penguins. An excursion to the Addo Elepahant park is a must when visiting this unique area

Customer Reviews

Everything was great, really enjoyed the day trip and the guide (John) was very knowledgeable and also fun. Would use Afroventures again & have already recommended the tour to other people! - Dovile

This was a splendid tour from start to finish; being picked-up at the stated time always helps. During the tour itself we saw an amazing variety of wildlife - from elephants down to a snake. Lions, elands, buffalo, warthogs, ostriches... were all seen in their natural habitat. Our extrovert guide, Elvis, seemed to know every creature by name, and he also served us a fine lunch. I'd happily go again any day, if only it weren't such a long way from London. - Tom Uprichard

Great experience. Elvis was a nice and funny guide, who tried to satisfy us wherever he could. The "light lunch" was more than enough. Highly recommended. - Agnes Skorka

We loved our time with our tour guide and we were really impressed with how friendly Peter was! The only negative I would say is the website says the tour is a total of 9 hours which means you would be in the park 7 hours. Our total tour was 7 hours with only 5 in the park. I would recommend making the website match exactly what the tour is for good expectations. - Morgan Bell

We had a very interesting tour with guide Kevin who turned out to be extremely knowledgeable and fun to be with. - Erich Binckli
