4 x 4 Kabouga section Greater Addo Elephant National Park-

An Amazing Diversity

  

Pick up at place of residence in Port Elizabeth and depart in 4 x 4 vehicle for the Kabouga section, Greater Addo Elephant National Park. We travel via the picturesque town of Kirkwood before entering the rugged northern areas of this famous National Park. This is a unique experience and one will meet with few if any other tourists.

Checking in, we travel through increasingly rough terrain, keeping an eye out for species such as, Warthog and Eland, Red Hartebeest, Klipspringer and Zebra as well as the stately Kudu, the males with their huge horns blending into the background (no Lions or Elephants in this section).

We spend the day exploring the area while constantly heading north through changing scenery into a valley where we break at the campsite on the banks for the Sundays River.

We have the chance to stretch our legs while Alan Tours prepares a scrumptious picnic breakfast overlooking the river. After breakfast we enter the 4 x 4 route proper traversing undulating terrain, steep sided valleys and rocky streambeds, ever alert to the birds and beasts that inhabit the area. Stop at scenic viewpoints, between challenging slopes through which we need to negotiate the Land rover. We summit at top of the Zuurberg Mountains offering huge vistas both to the south towards the coast and the north into the Little Karoo, Lake Darlington and beyond.

From the summit we start descending into the Little Karoo, where we keep a watch for Ostrich, Zebra and the possibility of sighting a rare Black Rhino before reaching Lake Darlington. Here we unpack our picnic hampers on the lakeshore for a well-deserved late lunch before making our way through winding farm roads as we journey back to Port Elizabeth and the end of an exciting day.
