Addo Elephant Park Safari

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from $229 USD / Adult
Journey across the Swartkops River and into the African bush country for a safari through the Addo Elephant Park. Today, this sprawling sanctuary is home to more than 450 Addo Elephants. However, this herd was nearly wiped out in the 1920s by hired game hunter, Major P. J. Pretorius, acting on an extermination order by the local government. You'll drive through the park with local guides leading the way. With a little luck, you'll come upon these majestic creatures and enjoy a remarkably close look. Hear the story of the elephants' comeback and keep watch for lions, cheetahs, zebras, kudus and wild dogs who share the protected parkland. You might even slow down to spot the flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. For those who love the great outdoors and its incredible creatures, this safari is a South Africa must.
  • Enjoy the rare opportunity to spot the reddish Addo Elephant, a smaller cousin of the African Elephant.
  • Learn how this herd was almost wiped out in the 1920's by big game hunting.
  • Keep watch for lions, hyenas, cheetahs and the extremely rare flightless dung beetle.
