Addo Elephant Park by Coach

Drive through the Addo Elephant Park, an unspoiled nature reserve teeming with wildlife. Settle in for an approximately 75-minute journey north across the Swartkops River to Addo Elephant Park, a spectacular nature reserve that stands as living proof of the success of South Africa's conservation efforts. During your approximately two-hour game drive, you'll hear that when the park was founded in 1931, it housed a paltry population of 11 elephants, which over time has ballooned to over 450 individuals.


From your coach, catch sight of the park's namesake elephants, a somewhat smaller species of the African elephant, and notice that they are reddish rather than the more common gray. You'll gather that they are highly intelligent creatures that communicate through vocalization, touching with their trunks and various body postures. Learn that the park's five biomes, from grassland to montane forest, support an enormous diversity of other animals, including black rhino, lions, antelopes, spotted hyenas, zebras and warthogs as well as a wide variety of birds, including the world's largest Cape gannet breeding population. On this unforgettable excursion, you'll applaud the successful protection of the remarkable Addo elephant.


Note: This tour is panoramic in nature with very limited walking. It is available to guests who utilize a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. There will be comfort stops upon entering and exiting the park. Wildlife sightings, while likely, are not guaranteed. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; binoculars; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
