Addo Elephant National Park is located just a short drive north of Addo in South Africa's Eastern Cape. Although the park is famous for its elephants, there are many more animals here and species include buffalo, the endangered black rhino, antelope species and lion and spotted hyena are here in small numbers as well. The park is about to be called Greater Addo Elephant National Park as it has been expanded to include several islands and marine wildlife, including African penguins! And whales and great white sharks are in those waters as well and as a consequence the park is promoted as the only park to see the Big 7, which includes the famous Big 5 (elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo and leopard) and the whale and great white shark as mentioned above. A truly unique park which is a very easy to visit and located in a malariafree area.
Check Sanparks' Addo Elephant National Park website for more information about getting and staying here.




The park has one major restcamp, owned by South African National Parks. Outside the core area, there are also much more expensive options.
