Addo Elephant National Park with its population of over 600 African Elephants, herds of Buffalo, Lions and Leopard amongst the many species of antelope, Zebra and Warthog as well as the rich and diverse bird and reptile life that inhabit this expanded National Park, one of the most popular in South Africa.

We leave the reserve to meet the ferry on the Sundays River, an estuary on the border of the Addo Elephant National Park where we board a ferry for a leisurely cruise on this wide calm waterway searching the reed banks for a wide diversity of birdlife and some of the smaller creatures to be found here. This is a bird watchers paradise. We continue to the coast where we view the beautiful wind driven sand dunes that make up a part of the largest dune field in the Southern Hemisphere.

Addo Elephant National Park and Sunset River Cruise

Early pick up at place of residence in Port Elizabeth and depart for Addo Elephant National Park with its population of over 600 African Elephants, herds of Buffalo, Lions and Leopard amongst the many species of antelope, Zebra and Warthog as well as the rich and diverse bird and reptile life that inhabit this expanded National Park, one of the most popular in South Africa.

After entering we check in and immediately start our game viewing experience searching for the many and diverse creatures in the thickets and on the open plains while learning about the habitat in which they live.

On returning to the main camp we enjoy a light lunch under the shelter of the thatched roof near the waterhole.

In the afternoon we continue the game drive searching the thickets for Elephant, Eland, Red Hartebeest as well as the stately Kudu, the males with their huge horns blending into the background.

We leave the reserve to meet the ferry on the Sundays River, an estuary on the border of the Addo Elephant National Park where we board a ferry for a leisurely cruise on this wide calm waterway searching the reed banks for a wide diversity of birdlife and some of the smaller creatures to be found here. This is a bird watchers paradise. We continue to the coast where we view the beautiful wind driven sand dunes that make up a part of the largest dune field in the Southern Hemisphere.

We may stop and climb the shifting sand dunes for a stunning view over the waters of Algoa Bay, St Croix Island with the largest colony of African penguins in the distance, and the possibility of sighting Whales that seasonally visit this large protected bay.

Soon after sunset, when the shadows have merged into dusk, we depart back to Port Elizabeth well satisfied, recounting the experiences of the day.
