Day 1, Night 1 Port Elizabeth, Algoa Bay and Addo Elephant National Park 07h30 pick up at place of residence in Port Elizabeth. We start the morning on the protected waters of Port Elizabeth’s Algoa Bay searching for Dolphins, Seals, Sharks and the seasonal Humpback and Southern Right Whales. Under expert guidance we circumnavigate St Croix Island for close up view of the largest breeding colony of African Penguin in the world. We return to the Harbour or a nearby restaurant for a satisfying light lunch. After lunch, we board the tour vehicle and depart for the Addo Elephant National Park for exciting game drives, scanning the thickets for the more traditional members of the BIG 5. The Reserve is famous for its population of over 700 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. Arriving at the main camp we check into our accommodation. After relaxing we again prepare for an exciting game drive before dinner at the restaurant and a well-deserved rest accompanied by the sounds of the African night. Day 2, Night 2 Addo Elephant National Park to Woody Cape Section Early morning wake up for coffee, tea and rusks and depart for a game drive, viewing a wide variety of African big game in these vast thickets and plains. This is the best time to catch the predators wandering the thickets before they lay up for the day. The awesome Lion live side by side with Warthog, Zebra, Kudu, Eland and Red Hartebeest in this 48 thousand hectare section of the National Park. Returning to the rest camp we take breakfast at the Park's restaurant before checking out. After packing up, we leave on a game drive, making our way out of the Park to continue to the lovely remote Woody Cape dune fields on the north eastern shore of Algoa Bay. Woody Cape is the Eastern most point of Algoa Bay, one of the largest inlet Bay’s on the Continent and once home to the first nation, the Khoikhoi people when they inhabited this area thousands of years ago. Checking into our forest cabins we enjoy a quiet picnic lunch before setting out to explore the remote, spiritual aeolian (wind driven) dune fields with their abundant remnants of an ancient culture and a view to Bird Island. On our return, we light the evening fire for our traditional South African evening meal prepared on the coals under the canopy of these spectacular forest accompanied by the bewitching call of the tree Dassies and other sounds of the African forest before a peaceful night’s rest in our log cabins. Day 3 Woody Cape section to Port Elizabeth Wake to the chorus of the forest birdlife before morning coffee and a short walk, searching for the little Blue Duiker and Bushbuck while reading the myriad of tracks left in the sand, like private notes on a pad, telling a tale of the nocturnal meandering of the permanent citizens of this wooded wonderland. The rough purr of the brilliantly coloured Knysna Turaco or the delightful song of the Chorister Robin accompanies us through the forest as we prepare to return to Port Elizabeth.
