We have visited Addo a number of times and have enjoyed the real Elephant experience every time. there is also a lovely picnic area with covered eating area with tables and benches as well as braai facilities. The close elephant experience is priceless

We were fortunate to see herds of elephants at 2 watering holes and just sat there for 30 minutes watching the herd interact. We also saw a large herd of red hartebeest but no lions.
