Firstly , if your vehicle does not have a working aircon, do not attempt this place in summer. It was a wapping 43 degrees. The place where you buy your " pass" was quite cool. They had a guest signing book. I loved that. I...More

Addo was really wonderful for elephant viewing. We had the best luck at Harpoor Dam. Our best viewing came on a particularly hot afternoon. We went to the watering hole, and there had to have been over 100 elephants there. They were drinking water, playing...More

Fantastic elephant sightings. Loved it. Roads are good. We saw lots of other animals too. Very different from Kruger. Interesting vegetation. Main camp too touristy. Underground hide good. Interpretive centre needs upgrading.

We drove ourself around in an ordinary car, a lot of the roads are paved so eady to self drive. I would think you need at least a whole day to do it justice. We stayed for two which was oerfect.
