Addo Elephant Park
Full Day Safari in Port Elizabeth by Afroventures Tours & Safaris
Spend a full day exploring the 3rd largest National Park in South Africa with one of 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 animals namely elephants, lions, buffalos, 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 the second largest breeding population of African penguins. An excursion to the Addo Elephant Park is a must when visiting this unique area.
Tours depart daily from Port Elizabeth and surrounding areas. Kindly do note that this tour is conducted in a closed minibus.

Great service !
We had a wonderful time. Our guide “John” did a great job finding lots of game for us to see. The lunch was also fantastic! A lifelong memory for our family
An excellent day out. Really enjoyed our driver's humour. He was great company and knew where to go to see the animals. We we're unlucky with weather and didn't get to see the lions or leopards, but the herds of elephants are so graceful and wonderful to watch.
